Swift Media wins more business from Western Australia mines

Swift Media Ltd says it has secured two new technology, entertainment and support contracts with Atlas Iron and a contract extension from AngloGold Ashanti, both in Western Australia.

The specialist technology company which delivers entertainment, communications and advertising to remote locations such as mine sites, has booked A$2 million ($1.56 million) in total contract value from its latest pacts, which also includes a contract extension with LNG focused Inpex Operations.

The Atlas Iron contracts at Miralga Creek and Sanjiv Ridge, in Western Australia, will see Swift provide its On Demand communication and entertainment platform and ongoing support for a 36-month term, plus Wi-Fi internet, fibre works, GPON network replacement, and data cabling for the Miralga Creek Village starting in March.

Swift has also extended its AngloGold contract, thought to be at Tropicana, which will see it supply in-room entertainment and ongoing support in 1,042 rooms for 11 months starting February 2021.

First Sanjiv Ridge iron ore shipment on its way, Atlas Iron says

Atlas Iron has hauled its first shipment of ore by road to Port Hedland, in Western Australia, from its new Sanjiv Ridge operation in four brand new pink trucks.

After announcing the first ore crushed earlier this month, the Hancock Prospecting owned company reached this new milestone this week.

Some 4-5 Mt/y of iron ore lump and fines is to be hauled by road to the Utah Point stockyard, which will add 5-6 years to the Atlas value chain, the company says. It comes with 64 Mt at 57.2% Fe of mineral resources and 29 Mt at 57% Fe reserves.

Sanjiv Manchanda, Atlas Iron CEO, said: “I’m so proud of our team of Atlas staff and our contracting partners, MGM Bulk, MACA and CSI for working so tirelessly to ensure we surpassed our project targets. It’s always a team effort, and our small team certainly knows how to get things done safely, efficiently and with agility to get a win-win outcome.

“I also take this opportunity to thank our partners MGM Bulk and CSI Mining (a Mineral Resources Ltd subsidiary) who painted their four brand new trucks and crusher, which were used today and for the duration of the project, a striking pink colour in recognition of our Group and Executive Chairman’s commitment to supporting breast cancer research and improving patient care. These pink trucks now add to a large amount of mining infrastructure in the Pilbara now pink, including trains, ships, processing plants, crushers and mining trucks.”

Sanjiv Ridge heads for full operations after Atlas Iron crushes first milestone

Atlas Iron has announced first ore has been crushed at its new mine, Sanjiv Ridge, in Western Australia, ahead of schedule.

Sanjiv Ridge is set to provide a significant boost to Atlas’s annual output, with an expected 4-5 Mt/y of lump and fines to be hauled by road to the Utah Point stockyard at Port Hedland. It is expected the mine will add 5-6 years to the Atlas value chain, with 64 Mt at 57.2% Fe of mineral resources and 29 Mt at 57% Fe reserves.

On the crushing milestone, Atlas Iron CEO, Sanjiv Manchanda, said: “Congratulations to all our team members, including both Atlas Iron staff and our valued contractors, for their hard work and dedication to hit this target ahead of schedule. Now, with first ore crushed, we are focusing on building the product stockpile and commencement of road haulage.”

Sanjiv Ridge was recently renamed from Corunna Downs after Atlas’ CEO in recognition of his long service across the Hancock Prospecting Group of companies.

The new mine site is due to be in full operation in the third quarter of Atlas’ 2021 financial year, and is situated northeast of Atlas Iron’s existing mining operation, Mount Webber.
