Scope of Work

Provide process design services to Lycopodium Engineering for the Roy Hill Iron Ore Preliminary Engineering Study.



Crushing and screening to produce a high lump and fines product for high grade ore. Low grade ore will progress through a further stage of crushing before upgraded via a wet plant consisting of cycloning, up-current classification (UCC) and spirals to reject contaminants and produce a fines product only at 50Mtpa.


Notable Feature

The size of the ore body and the planned centralised processing plant saw the selection of relocatable sizer primary/secondary crushers installations and overland conveying. The plant was designed to accommodate both high grade and low grade ore with the wet plant being brought on-line for the low grade campaigns only. At a feed rate of 9500t/h, multiple units of the world’s largest equipment was selected; 14 banana screens, 17 cone crushers, 12 UCC’s etc.



The preliminary Engineering Study was delivered. The project is progressing into BFS.
