In just five years, Western Desert Resources has moved their Roper River iron ore operation from exploration to production in record time.
This makes it one of the fastest bulk commodity mines developed in Australia, managing director Norm Gardner told attendees at its AGM in Adelaide recently. This is good news for the Australian iron ore industry.
In the past two years mining works have included negotiating Native Title Agreements, building a 165 km haul truck road including construction of 10 bridges, development of mine and loading infrastructure and installation and commissioning of the iron ore crushing circuit.
WDR Chairman, Mr Richard Allert, said that a major transformation had taken place in just five years since the initial exploration commenced. The focus for the next 12 months was for further exploration over their four licences which cover a massive 1800 sq kms from the Roper River south to Bing Bong Port. The long term goal is to ship 3 million tonnes of DSO iron ore through their loading facility at the port.
Transportation of the stockpiled ore to the loading facility is expected to take place in the next few days, with the first export shipment due to leave in early December.
The level of economic activity in the Roper region is encouraging in terms of the creation of new mining jobs for locals and interstate people looking for NT jobs. The government is looking forward to seeing the long-term benefits the mine site will bring to the State as well as to the Roper region.
