Survey Group conducts an ongoing consultancy role to the CITIC Pacific Sino Iron project, one of the most significant mining projects in Australia today.

Sino Iron is the largest magnetite project in Australia, located 100km south west of Karratha, Western Australia.

The construction of project infrastructure has been awarded to the Metallurgical Corporation of China Ltd (MCC), a large scale construction company with a global portfolio.

Working with Citic Pacific, Survey Group acts as a trusted advisor in the auditing of the construction works - monitoring standards and tolerances across the project.

In addition, Survey Group delivers local knowledge that is otherwise difficult to obtain for the global partners involved in the project.

Key infrastructure construction includes:

  • Infrastructure including site access roads, batching plant, major earthworks, buildings, water system accommodation, fuel system, electrical distribution, and communications.
  • Process plant including conventional crushers and grinding mills, magnetic separators, magnetite concentrator and pellet plant.
  • The port infrastructure will include a port stockyard and barge loading facility. Barges and trans-shipment facilities will be provided by a separate Operations Contractor.
