Jimblebar iron ore mine
Production at Jimblebar is expected to return to 65Mtpa rate, after a drop in 2021 associated with planned maintenance to the train loadout. With Jimblebar fully ramped up, BHP, as a whole, is now operating at its target production rate of 285-290 Mtpa. C1 cash costs at Jimblebar are expected to increase in 2022 due to higher fuel prices and costs, offset by favourable exchange rate movements. Jimblebar is already BHP's most efficient mine having the company's first autonomous haul fleet. Further gains are expected as new technology, such as selective investment in debottlenecking and capacity creep, continues to have a positive impact on productivity and efficiency in the mining industry.
