Third party ac­cess for CEIP in­fra­struc­ture

The Australian Mining Review - - NEWS - REUBEN ADAMS

IRON Road has signed a MoU with newly-formed farm­ers’ co-op­er­a­tive EPCBH to es­tab­lish a grains ex­port business us­ing Iron Road’s planned Cen­tral Eyre Iron Pro­ject (CEIP) in­fra­struc­ture.

The MoU fol­lows a sim­i­lar part­ner­ship be­tween Iron Road and Su­mit­omo sub­sidiary Emer­ald Grain, which is in­ves­ti­gat­ing the de­vel­op­ment of a new grain dis­tri­bu­tion and sup­ply chain net­work.

Iron Road managing director An­drew Stocks said the CEIP would un­lock sig­nif­i­cant ben­e­fits well be­yond the pro­ject’s min­ing and ore pro­cess­ing op­er­a­tions.

“We op­er­ate on a prin­ci­ple of third party ac­cess to our planned in­fra­struc­ture business,” he said.

“The ap­proved deep wa­ter port at Cape Hardy will be a first for South Aus­tralia and a fresh approach to in­fra­struc­ture de­vel­op­ment in the re­gion.

“Our on­go­ing part­ner­ship with Emer­ald Grain, now com­ple­mented by EPCBH, will also en­sure max­i­mum ben­e­fit for lo­cal com­mu­ni­ties and the re­gion.”
