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

The approval was required in relation to the proposed Cape Hardy port only, in particular the potential of increased shipping movements in the Spencer Gulf to impact on the Southern Right Whale population.

Central Eyre Iron Project Approved - Mining Lease & Development Approval Received

Iron Road’s Mining Lease and Development applications have been approved by the SA Government with a formal announcement being made by the Premier, the Hon Jay Weatherill MP and the Minister for Mineral Resources and Energy, the Hon Tom Koutstantonis MP on Wednesday, 3 May 2017.

Receiving the two key South Australian Government approvals for the CEIP Mine and associated Infrastructure is a significant milestone for the Company and adds to the momentum being generated in the areas of finance and construction, particularly in light of Iron Road’s strategic partnerships with China Railway Group Limited (CREC) and Emerald Grain.

The next stages of Iron Road’s development journey will include further engagement with landowners and stakeholders, preparing secondary approval applications, reaching a Final Investment Decision with CREC and ultimately achieving financial close.
