Talking Topic Round Table Sessions

Iron Road, with the assistance of community input, developed a program called Talking Topic Round Table Sessions. These sessions were established in response to ongoing stakeholder feedback regarding the same key themes: air quality; water; visual amenity; mine closure and rehabilitation; economic outcomes and social outcomes.

The Talking Topics were designed around the technical aspects of each key issue, addressing community expectations and providing relevant information from findings of the Technical Reports undertaken as part of the mining lease process.

CEIP Community Perceptions Survey

As part of Iron Road’s commitment to continual improvement, the Company undertook a community perceptions survey across Council area’s directly impacted by the Central Eyre Iron Project (CEIP). This survey was facilitated by an independent Adelaide research firm, Square Holes and conducted randomly via telephone. The purpose was to seek current community perceptions on the benefits and challenges that may be a result of the CEIP, assess Iron Road’s current engagement process and inform the Company’s engagement plan going forward. This will serve as a baseline for future surveys that may be developed to measure changes in community perceptions.

Sustained Policy Moves By Chinese Government Accelerating Steel Industry Transition To Higher Quality Raw Materials

Tuesday, 21 February 2017

Second Round of CEIP Debt Financing Discussions being held in Beijing this week

There is growing support for our CEIP project to supply high-quality, lower-emission ore to Chinese steel mills facing stricter environmental rules as the attached article in today’s China Daily suggests:

With reports that China plans to invest 2.5 trillion yuan ($365 billion) in renewable energy through 2020 to reduce greenhouse gases and is seeking to curb emissions by iron and steel producers, there is clearly a need for the CEIP’s product.

Mills are being compelled to upgrade their plants or cease operations if they fall short of standards, according to Bloomberg Intelligence.
Managing Director Andrew Stocks said that the policy moves in China support the CEIP’S high grade iron road product and the Company will be meeting with financiers in Shanghai and Beijing over the coming months.

“The consistent high quality nature of our product will deliver significant and compelling advantages as we seek to meet the growing high end supply gap in the iron ore market.

I very much look forward to building a Project that will become a trusted and reliable supplier of premium iron concentrates to the Asian marketplace.”
