Pilbara News - - News - Alicia Per­era

Rio Tinto is cel­e­brat­ing 50 years in the Pil­bara with a tour­ing his­tor­i­cal ex­hi­bi­tion which shows the projects and peo­ple that helped build it into a re­gional pow­er­house.

The Rio Ground­breaker Trail opened on June 1 in Pan­na­won­ica and will be tour­ing Pan­na­won­ica, Wick­ham, Tom Price, Parabur­doo and Dampier over the next 21⁄2 months in the lead-up to its of­fi­cial an­niver­sary on Au­gust 22.

Ex­hi­bi­tions are tai­lored to each town and in­clude items like shipping log­books, key con­tracts, pho­tos, in­dige­nous art­works and in­ter­ac­tive dis­plays for chil­dren to en­joy.

Rio Tinto chief ex­ec­u­tive iron ore, Aus­tralia, China and Korea, An­drew Hard­ing said the trail was part of the wider an­niver­sary fo­cus of cel­e­brat­ing peo­ple.

“We are ded­i­cat­ing the year to the many thou­sands of peo­ple who have en­abled our busi­ness to be the suc­cess that it is.

“This in­cludes em­ploy­ees, govern­ment and com­mu­nity part­ners, cus­tomers and in­vestors, each play­ing their part to en­able us to con­trib­ute to West­ern Aus­tralia and be­yond,” he said.

“As our busi­ness looks for­ward and we con­tinue to in­no­vate and im­prove we should re­flect on the many ground­break­ers that have been in­te­gral to this busi­ness.”
