We are in the midst of an exciting phase of expansion and growth.
Investing about US$20 billion in the next five years, our iron operations in the Pilbara will expand in two major stages; from our current capacity of 230 million tonnes per annum (Mt/a) to 290 Mt/a in 2013 and to 360 Mt/a by 2015. This is an increase of more than 50 per cent of our current capacity and represents the largest integrated mining project in Australian history. Find out more about how we are growing the Pilbara.
The Expansion Projects team manages the portfolio of major expansion projects and studies for the Pilbara. Its role is to take a project from conceptual level, through pre-feasibility and feasibility phases and, upon approval, take the project into construction and commissioning.
They operate closely with our Pilbara iron ore operations, but are managed independently in order to minimise the impact on operations during project study and implementation phases of each project.
