Hamersley - Yandicoogina iron ore mine

Report summary

Yandicoogina is a conventional open cut iron ore mine located approximately 90 kilometres north-west of Newman. It produces almost 60Mtpa making it one of the largest iron ore mines in the world. It is Rio Tinto's lowest cost mine due to its scale, low strip ratio, high mass recovery and simplicity of the orebody. But it also produces the lowest Fe grade product of Rio Tinto's iron ore mines. The development of the Pocket and Billiard South deposit is required to extend Yandicoogina's mine life into next decade.
