Established in Perth in 1996 and listed on the Australian Stock Exchange (ASX) in 2002, the Company’s asset portfolio includes:
- Koolan Island – a high grade iron ore mine off the Kimberley coast of Western Australia, acquired through Mount Gibson’s successful takeover of Aztec Resources in 2007. High grade DSO production is scheduled to resume in the first quarter of 2019.
- Extension Hill/Iron Hill DSO (Direct Shipping Ore) – located in the Mt Gibson Range, 260km southeast of Geraldton. Production commenced at Extension Hill in late 2011, yielding over 15Mt of DSO by the completion of mining in late 2016. Production switched to the nearby Iron Hill deposit in early 2017, where mining is scheduled to conclude in late 2018.
- Tallering Peak – The Company’s first mine, located approximately 175 kilometres east of the port city of Geraldton, commenced production in late 2003. Operations were completed in mid 2014 after life of mine ore sales totalling in excess of 25 million tonnes. The site was closed in September 2014, with final rehabilitation completed in 2015.
