Sino Iron is a large iron ore mine near the Pilbara coastline of Western Australia. It is 29 kilometres from the port at Cape Preston and 100 kilometres south-west of Karratha. It is the largest magnetite mine commissioned in Australia and represents the largest investment by a Chinese consortium in a single iron ore project in Australia. Citic Pacific (CITIC) is the owner and operator of the mine. Although the production target is 24 Mtpa the mine is yet to reach this capacity and we expect output to remain around 20 Mtpa.
