Brockman Syncline 4 Iron Ore Project

Proposal description: 

The proposal is to develop a new iron ore mine approximately 60 kilometres west-north-west of Tom Price and 25 kilometres south-west of the existing Brockman 2 mine.

The major components of the project include:

  • Three new mine pits- with approximately 20% of the orebody occurring below the water table;
  • Dry processing plant- including crushers, overland conveyor and screens; this will be located to the north of the pits running east/west to the rail loop;
  • Associated mine infrastructure- this includes camps, infrastructure corridor, waste dumps, stockpiles etc;
  • Extension to the Brockman 2 rail spur- a new rail spur will be constructed to transport ore past Brockman 2 to the Rosella Siding and then along the main line through to the port facilities at either Dampier or Cape Lambert; and
  • Infrastructure corridor- for power and water supply.
