BHP Billiton has awarded about $1.5 billion worth of contracts associated with its new South Flank iron ore mine in the Pilbara. BHP has required contractors to demonstrate their track record with regard to gender and cultural diversity when bidding for South Flank contracts, as part of its push for the project to have a gender-balanced workforce. Women comprise about 35 per cent of workers at South Flank, which is slated to commence production in 2021.
