BHP has achieved first ore at its USD 3.6 billion South Flank mine in the central Pilbara in Western Australia last week. South Flank is an 80 million tonne per annum sustaining mine, and will be the most technically advanced high quality iron ore mine in Western Australia. Together with the existing Mining Area C, it will form the largest operating iron ore hub in the world, producing 145 million tonnes of iron ore each year.

The South Flank project has expanded the existing infrastructure at Mining Area C, and involved construction of an 80 Mtpa crushing and screening plant, an overland conveyor system, stockyard and train loading facilities, procurement of a new mining fleet and substantial mine development and pre-strip work.
