Rio Tinto granted approval for Western Turner Syncline iron ore mine

The Western Australian government has approved the development of Rio Tinto's Western Turner Syncline iron ore mine in the Pilbara.

The mine, which is being brought online to maintain the company's level of production, is expected to produce 25 million tonnes to 30 million tonnes of iron ore each year.

State Development Minister Bill Marmion said Sept. 30 that CapEx on the project will be about A$18 million and 40 construction jobs will be created.

Works covered by the approval include the development of deposits to the north and west of the existing mining operation, and associated works such as the construction of haul roads, site access roads, storage areas and water treatment facilities.
