Roy Hill ramps up production
Roy Hill has announced that on February 1 the company officially took over the mine, rail and port operations from Samsung, the EPC contractor on the Roy Hill Project in the Pilbara region.
Roy Hill will now begin the ramp up of its operations to the 55 million tonne per annum name plate capacity and is currently focussing on building product stockpiles at the Mine and Port and is preparing for the imminent loading of its third shipment.
“I would like to thank Samsung C&T, their subcontractors, the contractors engaged by Roy Hill involved in delivering the ECI infrastructure, such as the Accommodation Villages and Mine Services Area, the staff at Roy Hill and each of the approximately 50,000 men and women who’ve been involved across the project over the years, for their efforts to date in progressing the Roy Hill project to this stage and for achieving this outcome,” Roy Hill CEO Barry Fitzgerald said.
“Roy Hill is a long-term operation, with a long-term outlook. We are a low-cost producer, with low phosphorous impurities, significant lump ratio, consistent quality and with approximately 90% of Roy Hill’s quality product already under long term contracts.”
