Project Details Project Details

The Roy Hill project will be a world-class iron ore mine. The deposit is the last of the large low phosphorous ore bodies in Australia outside the control of the majors and is located 105km north-east of Newman in the Pilbara region of Western Australia. The project will consist of:

  • Mining operation for 55Mtpa hematite iron ore;
  • Crushing, screening and processing lump and fines products;
  • Stockpiling and train loading;
  • A 344km standard gauge, single line, dedicated heavy-haul railway from the mine site to Port Hedland; and
  • Port facility located at Port Hedland for receiving, stockpiling, screening.
The mine processing plant, rail and port facilities will be designed to produce 55 million tonnes per annum (Mtpa) of Hematite direct ship ore (DSO) as Lump and Fines. Samsung C&T is contracted to undertake the scope of work as defined in the Engineering Procurement and Construction Contract (Contract No: ROYWP-H-315) dated April 2013.

During construction, the workforce will peak at 3500 people and it will have an operational manning of over 1600 personnel.

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