WA mining jobs given another boost with Corunna Downs iron ore project

WA Mining JobsThe news that Atlas Iron has approved the development of the Corunna Downs iron ore project in the Pilbara region has given another welcomed boost to WA mining jobs. 

After releasing a feasibility study in December, Atlas Iron found the mine will have a five to six year mine life and a 4 million tonne per annum direct shipping ore.

These figures added to the expansion of Atlas’ Mt Webber mine will see the company target a total export rate of 12mtpa by June 2018.

Atlas Iron managing director Cliff Lawrenson said, “Corunna Downs, together with Mt Webber, will rebuild our production rate to approximately 12mtpa after Wodgina and Abydos cease production in the first and second half of 2017 respectively.

The amendments to the facility will enable Atlas to capitalise on current and future opportunities provided by the stronger iron ore price.”¯

With shipments set to begin in March 2018, the construction and production phases of the Corunna Downs mine will likely start very soon, which is great news for WA mining jobs.
