BHP Billiton has resumed rail operations in Western Australia’s Pilbara region after it was forced to detail an iron ore train on 5 November. The cause of the incident is still being investigated, but sources within BHP have suggested that the problem may have been linked to maintenance issues. Meanwhile, heavy rain and flash flooding is believed to have contributed to the derailing of an empty iron ore train that was returning to Mineral Resources’ Koolyanobbing mine on 11 November. The company does not expect the incident to affect the mine’s output.
