A Rio Tinto spokesman has indicated that the resources giant expects to complete a pre-feasibility study on its Western Range iron ore deposit in Western Australia by mid-2019. Chris Salisbury, Rio Tinto’s head of iron ore, also recently described Western Range as an "important" project for the future of its Paraburdoo operations. Rio Tinto’s board is expected to approve development of the $US2.2bn ($2.98bn) Koodaideri project by the end of 2018, with initial production of 40 million tonnes a year.
