Iron Road's vision is to become a trusted and reliable supplier of premium iron concentrates to the Asian marketplace
Key to achieving this vision will be Iron Road's two South Australian projects:
Central Eyre Iron Project (CEIP) - A large 20Mtpa development that requires an industry partner
Gawler Iron Project - Potential for a 1-2Mtpa development, close to established rail with port access
Mining Lease Proposal and Environmental Impact Statement
Central Eyre Iron Project
On 5 November 2015 Iron Road formally submitted a Mining Lease application accompanied by a Mining Lease Proposal (MLP) to the SA Department of State Development (DSD) and an Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) to the SA Department of Planning, Transport and Infrastructure (DPTI), all in relation to the Central Eyre Iron Project.
Both documents provide comprehensive social, economic and environmental information, including full impact and benefit assessments, in relation to Iron Road’s proposed mining and processing operations within Mineral Claim 4383 at Warramboo and the infrastructure required to facilitate those activities and transport the magnetite concentrate to market. The infrastructure includes a deep sea port at Cape Hardy, a railway line between the mine and the port, power transmission line, borefield and long term employee village to accommodate mine site workers during operations.

DSD and DPTI have commenced a joint statutory public consultation process in relation to these applications which will run until 2 February 2016.
