What we own
Pilbara is an integrated system of four processing hubs and five mines connected by more than 1,000km of rail infrastructure and port facilities in the Pilbara region of northern Western Australia.
The Group has a 1.5% life of mine GRR over three exploration tenements in the central Pilbara region of Western Australia, owned by a wholly owned subsidiary of BHP Group Limited (‘BHP’), which is listed on the ASX. The tenements, covering 263km², host a number of known iron occurrences, including the Railway deposit.
The tenements are supported by extensive rail infrastructure including the rail lines from Rio Tinto’s West Angeles and Yandicoogina mines and BHP’s rail line serving its current operations at Mining Area C, which lie immediately to the east of the Railway deposit.
Ecora does not anticipate any tangible progress on the tenements covered by the Group’s royalty until ~2050, while BHP continues to develop its other iron ore interests in the Pilbara region.
