Rio Tinto was issued with a prohibition notice on 21 October, after workers at the Tom Price iron ore hub in the Pilbara were exposed to a toxic gas in September. Western Australia’s Department of Mines, Industry Regulation & Safety ordered the temporary closure of the open pit and required Rio Tinto to improve monitoring systems and safety procedures at the site. Rio Tinto has taken remedial action and advised that the incident will not affect its 2019 output from the Pilbara. Production at the Tom Price hub began in 1966.
