Proposal description: 

Mount Gibson Mining Limited proposes to mine and process iron ore (hematite and magnetite) from Extension Hill and Extension Hill North. The proposal also includes the construction of a pipeline to transport the magnetite slurry to Geraldton Port, and infrastructure at the port to strip the ore from the slurry for export.

The operation will yield approximately 13 million tonnes of hematite over 8 years and 230 million tonnes of magnetite over 20 years. Extension Hill and Extension Hill North are part of a ridge of Banded Ironstone Formations (BIFs) within the Mt Gibson ranges in the Mid West region of Western Australia.
