Lake Giles early revenue opportunities
Macarthur is examining early revenue opportunities for the Lake Giles Iron Project in Western Australia and has lodged applications to develop a 93-kilometre haul road to a proposed rail siding adjacent to the Perth-Kalgoorlie rail line.
The proposed road and siding would provide the opportunity for the transport of ore from the project in the state's Yilgarn region by rail to Esperance Port or the Port of Kwinana as well as support potential for early revenue direct shipping ore (DSO) hematite mining.
These applications have been lodged with the WA Department of Mines, Industry, Regulation and Safety.
The hematite DSO plan would precede development of the larger, high-value magnetite resource at Lake Giles.
