(Public Review Period: 8 May 2017 to 6 June 2017)
BHP Billiton Iron Ore Pty. Ltd.

The Proposal will leverage existing facilities and infrastructure located at Mining Area C – Northern Flank, including, but not limited to stockyard and train load-out facilities coupled with the addition of new ore processing facilities within the current Mining Area C – Northern Flank. Primary crushing and open-pit mining activities will take place in the Southern Flank locality.
