SMC’s Blue Hills (Mungada) Direct Shipping Iron Ore (DSO) project Stage 1 went into care and maintenance in 2015. Stage 2 (Mungada East Extension) is currently under assessment by the EPA.
Flagship 300Mt high grade DSO Project has achieved all primary approval requirements. The Weld Range project was put on hold in June 2011 until further clarification on the development timeline of a port and rail project at Oakajee can be established.
The project area is located within the Achaean-aged Jack Hills Greenstone Belt approximately 380km north east of Geraldton in the Mid West region of WA.
SMC is in the early stages of exploration at its Robinson Range project, approximately 120km north of Meekatharra in Western Australia, which it is exploring for iron ore and manganese potential.
SMC’s Koolanooka Direct Shipping Iron Ore (DSO) Project completed operations in 2013 and since has been extensively rehabilitated. SMC’s rehabilitation effort has included teaming up with Botanic Parks and Gardens Authority (BPGA) for a research project.
The proposed Koolanooka Magnetite project formed the second stage in the development of the Koolanooka resource.
