Rio Tinto has declined to confirm or deny reports that it has established an exploration camp in the Pilbara’s North Paterson province. Satellite photos suggest that the resources giant has set up a camp in the province’s sand dunes, which in turn has prompted speculation of a major copper find. The northern part of the province is largely unexplored due to the presence of sand, but the southern region includes the Telfer gold mine and the Woodie Woodie manganese mine.
