CSI Mining Services gets crushing gig at Atlas Iron’s McPhee Creek project

CSI Mining Services, part of Mineral Resources Ltd, says it has been awarded a five-year crushing contract for Atlas Iron’s McPhee Creek project, in Western Australia.

The contract will see CSI supply and operate a 10 Mt/y primary crushing plant at the McPhee Creek iron ore mine site, fed by Atlas Iron via dump trucks or wheel loaders, with product to be stockpiled for reclaim and haulage by Atlas Iron.

Chief Executive Mining Services, Mike Grey, said the contract adds to the strong pipeline of upcoming work for CSI.

“It’s fantastic to strengthen our partnership with Atlas Iron, with CSI also currently providing crushing services for their Sanjiv Ridge mining operations and crushing and haulage operations for Roy Hill,” he said. “It’s an exciting period of growth for our business, with CSI recently awarded three new crushing contracts.

“The variety of projects we support ensures our people have opportunities to work on different mine sites with diverse clients, gaining experience across a range of crushing plants.”

CSI is scheduled to mobilise to site in late 2024 to commence construction activities, ahead of crushing commencing in the June quarter of 2025.

The McPhee mine site is located in the northeast Pilbara region of Western Australia, some 100 km north of Roy Hill Mine and 30 km north of Nullagine, with an expected production rate of approximately 9.5-9.7 Mt/y (wet). Primary crushed ore will be hauled via road train from McPhee to Roy Hill for processing, transport to the port and shipping.
