  • Mineral Resources’ acquisition of Koolyanobbing iron ore mine to allow iron ore exports from Esperance to continue
  • State Government working towards a positive outcome for Esperance

Premier Mark McGowan has moved to reassure Esperance that iron ore exports at the local port remained a priority for the McGowan Government.

State Government has been working with Mineral Resources Limited (MRL) to acquire Cleveland-Cliffs’ fixed infrastructure assets at the Port of Esperance, to ensure a positive outcome for the people of Esperance.

“State Government continues to work closely with MRL to ensure economic activity continues in the region.” Premier Mark McGowan said.

“Acquisition will ensure mining operations will continue out of Esperance Port and local jobs are protected.”

Acquisition will ensure that mining operations continue in the region. Exports will continue to be shipped through Esperance Port and many local jobs will be protected.

State Government has committed to time limited royalty relief for Cliffs-related port throughput and reduced port charges, in order to guarantee continued operations and ensure many local jobs, including workers at Esperance Port, are protected.

Assistance provided by the Government will allow the mining of iron ore to continue in the region, providing certainty to the local workforce.
