Fortescue Metals Group will be able to supply higher-grade iron ore after its board approved the development of the Eliwana mine in the Pilbara. The $A1.7bn project, which also includes a rail component and a processing plant, will enable Fortescue to produce ore with 60 per cent iron content, compared with an average of 58 per cent at present. Eliwana will replace the Firetail mine, which is approaching the end of its mine life. Production at Eliwana is slated to commence in 2020, with annual output of about 30 million tonnes.
