Roy Hill engaged BG&E Resources to undertake a concept engineering study to determine optimal solutions for magnetite handling from within the Ridley Development Envelope at Port Hedland, and into the Stanley Point 3 shiploading circuit.

Located in Western Australia’s Pilbara Region, Stanley Point 3 is part of the Port of Hedland, the largest bulk commodities port in the world. To support the long-term strategic planning of its existing mine and port infrastructure, Roy Hill has commenced the detailed design phase of the proposed Stanley Point 3 Port Expansion Project to increase the current export capacity from 60-64 Mtpa to 102 Mtpa.

As part of this study, our team provided a detailed assessment of the options identified and developed feasible conveying and transport routes.

Our team also undertook a high-level assessment of the proposed SP3 assets and proposed mitigation measures to prevent issues relating to handling the higher-density product.

In addition to this project, we have completed two other engagements for Stanley Point 3: a Feasibility Study for the Port Expansion which incorporated sufficient engineering definition (15%) to support a Class 4 cost estimate for a base case integrated stockyard and a split yard solution, and an Energy & Power Feasibility Study to determine the overall power and energy demand for the new infrastructure.
