Balla Balla Magnetite Project

Proposal description: 

The proponent proposes to mine up to 10.1 Mtpa of magnetite ore to produce 6 Mtpa of ore concentrate over a 15 year mine life. The magnetite concentrate would be conveyed to Port Hedland from the mine via a 110 km slurry pipeline located alongside the existing Pilbara Energy Pipeline (PEPL). The concentrate would be dewatered at a purpose-built facility located at Utah Point in the Port Hedland Port area, prior to shipping overseas, where it would be used predominantly in steel manufacture.
