Ridley Magnetite

The Ridley Magnetite project is an ambitious new undertaking located less than 60km from Port Hedland, in the Makanykarra (formerly Pardoo) project area. HanRoy is completing the studies on behalf of Atlas Iron, with preliminary mine planning, engineering and approvals all underway.

The feasibility study was approved by the board and commenced in March 2022, with expected completion in the second half of 2023. Stage 1 will consist of a plant with a nominal capacity of 3 Mtpa (dry) with scope for further staged expansion of up to 16.5 Mtpa (Stage 2).

The Ridley project is located on the lands of the Ngarla People.


Federal and State referrals were submitted in early 2023.
