Rapid Growth Project – WA

The Jimblebar iron ore mine is located in the Pilbara Region of Western Australia, 41 kilometres east of Newman. Launched in 2010, the Rapid Growth Project aimed to increase production from the Pilbara mines to 240 million tonnes of iron ore per annum by 2013. The Rapid Growth Project increased BHP Billiton’s installed capacity across its Western Australian iron-ore operations by 50 million tonnes to 205 million tonnes per annum.

Monford completed rail and non process infrastructure for the project.
