Roy Hill is a recently developed 55 million tonne per annum (Mtpa) iron ore mining, rail and port operation in West Australia’s Pilbara region.
Situated approximately 340 kilometres south east of Port Hedland in West Australia, Roy Hill is a low phosphorus, Marra Mamba iron ore deposit located in the Pilbara – close to Asia and in one of the world’s premier iron ore provinces. Roy Hill is an independent iron ore operation with West Australian majority ownership, chaired by an Australian, Mrs Gina Rinehart.
Our Operations consists of a:
- Conventional open pit, bulk mining operation from multiple production benches
- 55Mtpa wet processing plant
- 344 kilometre single line, heavy haul railway
- Purpose built, dedicated two berth iron ore port facility at Port Hedland, capable of receiving, stockpiling, screening and exporting 55Mtpa (wet) of direct shipped iron ore as lump and fines.
Roy Hill has a defined mineralisation of approximately 2bt of +50% Fe iron ore of which 1bt forms the current +55% Fe mineral resource, enough to sustain a base case mine life of more than 11 years. Mining commenced in 2014 and current tonnages take into account mining depletion.
With integrated mine, rail and port facilities, which has the capacity to deliver 55Mtpa – Roy Hill is one of the world’s major resource based operations, which will deliver enormous benefits to the broader community for years to come.
Roy Hill loaded its first shipment of ore for export on 10 December 2015 and has since loaded multiple shipments to its key markets in Japan, Korea, China and Taiwan.
