Jack Absalom's: Treasures Of The Pilbara
English adventurer William Dampier sailed along Australia's North West coast in 1688. He called it the most barren spot on the globe but noticed that the compass showed a powerful attraction to a range of mountains to the south. For the next 250 years that powerful attraction was ignored, until in the 1960's it was found there were vast reserves of iron ore, today it is thought there is enough to supply world needs for the next 400 years. Jack Absalom's journey into the Pilbara unearths many of the regions treasures. You also get to travel on some of the giant ore trains that carry the economic treasure to the ports and onto giant cargo ships headed to Japan and China.

BHP Billiton Iron Ore MT Whaleback Mine Tour.
Mount Whaleback iron ore mine is located just outside of the town of Newman in the Pilbara region of West Australia. Visitors can catch a tour by bus from the visitors centre in Newman. The tour takes visitors to the top of a hill overlooking the mine where a display of assorted mining hardware can be seen as weell as a panoramic view of the mine. The open cut mine is vast with over 1,000,000,000 tonnes of ore mined since 1969.The ore is high grade hematite 68.8% iron. The ore is loaded into giant 200 tonne trucks at the mine. Each tyre on the trucks is 3.5 metres in diameter. The trucks transport the ore to the nearby railway where it is loaded in to 2.6 km long trains for transport to Port Hedland 426 km west. each train carries 33,000 tonnes of ore.

This is main pit when BHP finished here they through everything, machines plant, equipment you name it, into the pit and buried it, now it is being removed to gain access to the rich ore. The Iron Ore here is of high quality 67+%, you can weld the rocks together. This mine was opened originally pre WW2 lucky the Japs didn't get into Darwin and come down & get their mits on it......... Things would be dramatically different in Aussi today............any way Koolan Island has some interesting/amazing history worth a look on Wikipedia.

Copper. One more ore processing
KAZ Minerals presents Copper is one of the top seven metals known since the ancient time. Actually, humankind knows over 170 copper-containing minerals. Copper melts at 1,0830C. Copper and zinc alloy is known as brass. Copper and tin give us bronze, and alliance with nickel turns copper into melchior. Copper presents in Olympic medals of two values. Bronze medal contains about 97% of copper, and silver medal – about 7.5%. However, we need our copper mined and processed first.

Pilbara Iron Ore Infrastructure - Phase A and B
Fortescue Metals Group (FMG) awarded McConnell Dowell the design and construction of the Pilbara Iron Ore Infrastructure Project at Port Hedland in Western Australia. FMG is positioning itself as the third major iron ore producer in Australia. MacDow's scope of work included a load-out berth, a lay-by berth and navigation aids. The load-out berth comprises a 100 m long approach jetty complete with roadway and elevated conveyor trusses; a transfer station platform with wharf conveyor, drive and belt change-out areas; and a wharf structure to supports the shiploader. The wharf includes shiploader rails; six independent berthing dolphins including fenders and quick release mooring hooks and controls; and trafficable concrete deck required for maintenance and associated traffic. The lay-by berth comprises eight independent berthing and mooring dolphins with interconnecting catwalks. Included on the berth were remotely controlled quick release mooring hooks and capstans on all dolphins. A total of five new navigation aids were designed and installed within the confines of the Port Hedland Port Authority (PHPA) inner harbour. Piling of the 341 piles were carried out by two piling barges with 350 tonne cranes, and a construction barge with a 180 tonne crane. Each of these barges was in turn supplied by four material/supply barges. Piles were driven using a piling frame system specifically designed by the company and predominantly constructed by MacDow's fabrication yard in Batam, Indonesia. The piling works included installation of 341 no. 1,016 diameter piles totalling 6,230 tonnes with wall thickness of 20, 22 and 35 mm. The piles ranged in size from 38 m to 55 m long. A modular approach was used to construct the deck structures. Steel modules form the main structural elements and incorporate pre-cast concrete planks, conveyor galleries and associated equipment. The modules were laser aligned off site to ensure on site alignment required only minor adjustment. The modular approach minimised on-site work, reduced the overall programme duration, and ensured achievement of our first milestone date for the arrival of the client's shiploader. Overall the project was completed on time and on budget, and MacDow's performance was recognised by its peers with the awarding of the WA Civil Contractor's Federation 2008 Construction Excellence Award. Based on the performance on this project, MacDow was awarded the first phase of the expansion of the facility. This includes the addition of a new approach jetty; a new transfer tower; new main loadout berth; new lay-by berth; new berthing dolphins and associated works. With the current growth and expansions planned for the Pilbara area over the next few years, McConnell Dowell is at the forefront of the design and construction of new civil marine projects to service the resources boom.

Loading Iron Ore at Hamersley's Tom Price mine. WA.
I took this silent movie when I was working at Hamersley Iron's Tom Price iron ore mine in the Pilbara region of WA, in the late 1970's. The smaller haultrucks were Wabco120B and the larger ones were Wabco3200B, ( They carried well over 200 tons of iron ore at a time.) Both were relatively easy to drive once you had got used to their size. I think the quality of the movie is pretty good, considering it's age and the fact that it has been transferred from old Cine film---VHS---DVD---PC and finally to YouTube.

BHP approves $4b iron ore mine as new boom hits the Pilbara: http://www.abc.net.au/news/2018-06-15/bhp-approves-4-billion-dollar-mine-expansion/9874086. Thanks for watching, subscribe for more videos: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCPLbW-HoiBuA8yepLypwA6g?sub_confirmation=1 BHP approves $4b iron ore mine as new boom hits the Pilbara By business reporter Stephen Letts  The mining boom appears to be getting something of a second wind with BHP approving a new $4 billion iron ore project in WA's Pilbara. BHP's approval of the South Flank mine comes after Fortescue gave the green light to its new $1.3 billion Eliwana project in the Pilbara last month, while Rio Tinto is expected to approve the $3 billion Koodaideri mine before the end of the year. However, unlike the last massive ramp-up in production which led to a global oversupply of iron ore and crushed prices, the new mines are being brought on stream to replace exhausted reserves in older pits. The South Flank project is expected to start production in 2021 and have a life span of more than 25 years. BHP's head of mineral operations, Mike Henry, said the project would fully replace the 80 million tonne per annum production from the Yandi mine which is reaching the end of its economic life. "The project will create around 2,500 construction jobs, more than 600 ongoing operational roles and generate many opportunities for Western Australian suppliers," Mr Henry said. Importantly for BHP, the mine should lift the average quality of BHP's Pilbara production at a time higher-quality products are attracting significant premiums to benchmark prices.
