Iron Bridge, located 100km south of Port Hedland, is a joint venture between Fortescue, Taiwan’s Formosa Group and China’s Baosteel Group, incorporating the world class North Star and Glacier Valley Magnetite ore bodies.
Building on the development of a large scale pilot plant and successful testing of an innovative, low cost production process already completed, future developments will deliver product via a pipeline to storage and handling facilities in Port Hedland.
This will be subject to market conditions and approval by joint venture partners.
Firetail Replacement Project
Firetail is an important component of the Fortescue Blend product and the replacement strategy will ensure we maintain the integrity and quality of its product range.
During FY17, Fortescue continued to study all options for the Firetail replacement project with a decision between the Western Hub and Nyidinghu expected during FY18.
