Geraldton Port

Operations >> Geraldton Port

Mount Gibson’s established export base at Geraldton Port in Western Australia is a key asset, which gives the Company a significant competitive advantage, and a highly strategic role in the long-term development of the Mid West iron ore industry.

Mount Gibson has long-term user and access agreements in place with the Geraldton Port Authority, including 50-year leases, and owns two storage facilities with a combined ore storage capacity of 360,000-tonnes.

Mount Gibson also has long standing rail access agreements in place under which it transports ore from its Mid West mines to Geraldton for export.

In May 2012, a major upgrade of the rail unloading facilities was completed at the port, which effectively doubled the Company’s export capacity from Geraldton Port to approximately 6-million tonnes per annum.
