COMMODITY: Iron Ore

Koolyanobbing is located 54 km NNE of the town of Southern Cross, Western Australia. Iron ore is mined here by a subsidiary of Cliffs Natural Resources of Cleveland, Ohio. Ore is railed to port at Esperance for export. The current operations commenced in 1993. Koolyanobbing was then acquired by Mineral Resources when its previous owner, Cliffs Natural Resources, withdrew from Australia. The mine did not operate for several months but Mineral Resources re-started the operation and shipped its first tonnes from the site in December 2018. The mine will produce 6 Mtpa for approximately 6 years with depletion expected in 2025.
