Arrium Mining is an exporter of hematite iron ore and also supplies iron ore feed to Arrium's integrated steelworks at Whyalla. The business was established in 2007 following the commercialisation of the company’s hematite iron ore reserves under Project Magnet. Arrium's mining operations are located in South Australia. In June 2013, the business achieved a major milestone with sales being ramped up to a run rate of 12Mtpa, effectively marking the on time and on budget delivery of the expansion to double the size of the business. Arrium Mining also has its own export port facilities at Whyalla. These facilities were also expanded during the year, with the port's capacity now 13Mtpa.
Arrium' mining operations are located in South Australia: the Middleback Ranges, approximately 60 kilometres from the Whyalla township; and Southern Iron, which includes the Peculiar Knob tenement, located approximately 90 kilometres from Coober Pedy township.
Arrium Mining has two mining operations: the Middleback Ranges and Southern Iron, both located in South Australia.
Our supply chain starts at our mines in South Australia, moves to our crushing and beneficiation facilities, then to our rail and trucking operations, and is then exported through our own port facilities.
Our expanding mining and export capability is supported by our known reserves and resources and ongoing exploration program.
