Our facilities

At Roy Hill, we have created a high-performance environment through state-of-the-art facilities, with a focus on integrating business systems, processes and technology to deliver reliable, sustained and low-cost production of high quality and grade iron ore.


We are an owner operator, conventional open pit, drill and blast, truck and excavator bulk mining operation. Our mine has an initial mine life of 17 years, with a likely extension beyond that of 12 years and is one of the largest mining operations in the Pilbara, moving one million tonnes of material every day. Our processing plant is also the largest single processing plant in the region, using low risk, proven technology to process lump and fines iron ore.


Our independently owned and operated railway is a 344-kilometre standard gauge, single line, heavy haul rail line built to transport iron ore from our mine to the dedicated port stockyard facility, in the Boodarie Industrial Estate south of Port Hedland.


Our purpose built, world class iron ore port facility at Port Hedland is capable of receiving, stockpiling, screening and exporting 60 million tonnes per annum of iron ore. The port stockyard has the capacity to store over 2.3 million tonnes, with ten 230,000 tonne live stockpiles and space to store additional material as necessary.

Corporate Headquarters, Remote Operations Centre and Warehouse

Our Perth-based integrated Corporate Headquarters and Remote Operations Centre (ROC) provides end to end integration of our operations, marketing and corporate services functions.

The location of our Corporate Headquarters and ROC provides a coordinated and integrated approach to the planning, operation and overall management of our corporate, mining, processing, rail and port operations.

The central component of the ROC is the control room, which houses the team responsible for the operational planning, scheduling and execution of production activities across all areas of operations. The ROC uses the latest technology including:

  • live production data,
  • live data on vehicle and train movements, and
  • video and GPS positioning data which is streamed live.

This technology also controls our remote operations including our fully automated drills rigs, which are operated from both site and the ROC using a console.

Located a few minutes’ walk from the ROC, the Supply System Building and Roy Hill Distribution Centre brings together cross-functional teams from asset management, supply chain, procurement and a section of the technology function. This large warehouse space builds capabilities and capacity to benefit maintenance, repair and overhaul work undertaken across the business.
