PARDOO IRON ORE PROJECT
Pardoo Iron Ore Project is currently at the Construction stage, valued at about $ 8300000 it is The project is based on an identified iron ore (hematite) resource of approximately 7.4Mt. The project proposes an ore production rate of 1.5 Mtpa, resulting in a mining life of 5 - 6 years. The project involves the open cut mining of eight small pits in five deposits to obtain direct-shipping quality iron ore. The ore will be crushed, screened and stockpiled on site prior to being loaded into rail trains for road haulage to the appropriate berth at Port Hedland. Ore will be stockpiled at the port until it is loaded onto ships for export to overseas customers. The major components of the Pardoo DSO Project are: minesite establishment, mining operations, product transport and export and decommissioning and closure. The minesite access road and temporary construction yard and administration area will be the first infrastructure constructed. The mining operations centre (MOC) will be located in the northern portion of the minesite and contains the following infrastructure: administration area including Atlas facilities, mining contractor's facilities, crushing and screening contractor's facilities, haulage contractors facilities, sewerage treatment and waste water storage, potable water storage, common parking area. The MOC will also contain a fuel storage and refuelling area, power station (diesel), crushing and screening plant, ROM ore pad and product stockpiling area, parking areas and portions of the access road and haul road, and combined contractor's laydown area. Haul roads will be constructed between the pits, waste rock dumps, stockpiles and ROM pad stockpile. Minor access roads will provide access to waste rock dumps and inspection points, dewatering equipment, water management structures, environmental discharge locations and other minesite management areas. The proposed mining operation will be a multiple, open pit mining operation, using conventional drill and blast and load and haul methods. Ore from the pits will be hauled directly to the ROM pad or temporarily stockpiled adjacent to the pits. The crushing and screening plant will provide primary and secondary crushing and screening.
