ail infrastructure and port facilities in the Pilbara region of northern Western Australia. The company’s focus is to improve output through operating its mines and utilizing available infrastructure at its disposal. This includes the company’s plan to continue to improve production following the completion of various expansion projects and ongoing debottlenecking of the supply chain to underpin further growth in capacity to 290 million tonnes per annum. The company has expanded its WAIO operations in response to increasing demand for iron ore, particularly from China. Lump and fines products are sold to steel mills in China, South Korea, Japan, Singapore, Hong Kong, Taiwan, Switzerland, and Australia, under long-term and short-term contracts. The company’s WAIO operations consist of four main joint ventures, such as Mt Newman, Yandi, Mt Goldsworthy, and Jimblebar. Its interest in the joint ventures is 85 per cent with Mitsui & Co., Ltd. (Mitsui) and ITOCHU Corporation owning the remaining 15 per cent. The Mt Newman Joint Venture consists of various orebodies joined by conveyors and spur lines to a mining hub at Mt Whaleback. Ore is crushed, beneficiated (where necessary) and blended to create the Newman Blend for lump and fines. The ore is then transported to port using the company’s rail facilities. The Yandi JV comprises the Yandi mine where ore is crushed and screened and then transported by rail on the Newman main line. The Mt Goldsworthy JV consists of the Area C mine in the central Pilbara and the Yarrie mine in northern Pilbara. Ore is crushed and screened at Area C and transported by rail to the hub at Mt Whaleback. The company’s rail operations are controlled from Perth through its integrated remote operations center, which co-locates rail control, port production control, mine dispatch control, and mine fixed plant control. The company’s port facilities are located on both sides of the harbor at Port Hedland. These facilities consist of Nelson Point and Finucane Island. The port facilities include five ore car dumpers, three screening plants, nine stackers, five reclaimers, stock and blending yards, and eight ship loaders.
