Jack Hills Iron Ore Mine
The Jack Hills iron ore mine produced more than 7.4 million tonnes of premium grade iron ore lump and fines during its five-year life.
The ore was crushed and screened at Jack Hills, before being trucked 640 kilometres via Cue to a storage and transfer facility at the Port of Geraldton – using triple road trains, designed for safety, stability, noise mitigation and dust control. High grade lump and fines were then loaded and shipped to customers primarily in China, Korea and Japan.
Crosslands began mining at Jack Hills in November 2006, with the first shipment of ore occurring in February 2007. Stage 1 operations ceased at Jack Hills in February 2012 having produced, on average, around 1.8 million tonnes per annum, with grades exceeding 64% Fe for lump and 61% Fe for fines.
Crosslands has placed its Jack Hills mine under a care and maintenance program as we focus on developing the JHEP.
