Roy Hill iron ore

The Roy Hill project will be a world-class iron ore mine and is located 115km north-east of Newman in the Pilbara region of Western Australia. The project will consist of:

  • mining operation for 55 million tonnes per annum of hematite iron ore
  • crushing, screening and processing lump and fines products
  • stockpiling and train loading
  • 344km standard gauge, single line, dedicated heavy-haul railway from the mine site to Port Hedland
  • port facility located at Port Hedland for receiving, stockpiling, screening
  • two new purpose-built berths.

During construction the workforce will peak at 3,600 people and it will have an operational manning of over 2,000 people.

The project will create significant wealth for Australia through the generation of export revenue, employment creation and payment of royalties and taxes.

To support ICN in thes project, the Australian Government has provided funding through its Supplier Access to Major Projects (SAMP) program. SAMP helps Australian suppliers gain access to opportunities both within Australia and globally.
