Summary

The Braemar Infrastructure Pty Ltd (BIPL), a wholly owned subsidiary of Global Bulk Ltd, is planning to undertake the construction of an iron ore transport corridor in South Australia, Australia.

The project involves the construction of a 385km infrastructure corridor with a capacity to export more than 100 million tonnes per annum (MTPA) of iron ore.

The project will be developed in stages, with the first stage expected to have a capacity of 25MTPA.

The project will include the construction of a floating port/wharf facility approximately 4km off the coast north west of Point Riley, where large export vessels (i.e. greater than 150,000 tonnes) will receive the iron ore concentrate for export, four underground slurry pipelines from the export facility in Spencer Gulf to the mines in the Braemar Region, four underground process and slurry return water pipelines which will deliver process water extracted from the Spencer Gulf and slurry return water to the mines in the Braemar Region and a road from the Goyder Highway near Burra to the Braemar Region and the laying of optic fibre telecommunications and a 275kv transmission line from the existing electricity network near Burra to the Braemar Region.

It also includes the construction of associated support and service facilities including pump stations, pressure management storage tanks, valves, cathodic protection ground beds and pressure relief product storage facilities, a control, maintenance and operations base near Burra, a marine supply base proposed to be at Wallaroo Port and related infrastructure facilities.

In September 2013, the South Australian State Government declared the project to be a major development, triggering a stringent environmental and economic assessment.

In September 2013, BIPL signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) with Magnetite Mines Ltd.(MGT), a mineral exploration company exploring for iron ore in South Australia, for the development of the project. The collaboration will help Royal cut down its capital cost in its Razorback Premium Iron Project which is one of the lowest capital intensity iron magnetite mining projects in Australia. As per the MoU, BIPL will be MGT’s preferred transport infrastructure provider. As a foundation customer of BIPL’s project, Royal will receive preferred customer status and enjoy first right of access and lowest competitive rates.

As of May 2017, BIPL is in the process of finalizing with the merger Magnetite Mines Limited(MGT) for further development of the project.
