Iron ore producers Mineral Resources, BHP, Fortescue Metals Group and Hancock Prospecting have been asked to contribute to an independent review to determine the maximum capacity of Port Hedland. The Western Australian government wants the review to be completed by December, and it comes after the mining companies rejected the government’s call for a $10 billion outer harbour to be constructed at Port Hedland. Growth plans outlined by the four companies amount to output of at least 690 million tonnes per annum, while the government believes that Port Hedland’s maximum capacity could be pushed to around 650 million tonnes.
