Red Hill Iron Limited (RHI or the Company) was formed in
2005 with the purpose of acquiring and evaluating the
iron ore potential of its extensive tenement package
covering much of the western margin of the Hamersley
Province of the West Pilbara region of Western
The Company has 49,405,037 fully paid ordinary shares on
issue and 500,000 unlisted options.
The Company's primary assets are its Red Hill Iron Ore
Joint Venture (RHIOJV) interest and its wholly owned
Pannawonica channel iron project. It also has quarrying
opportunities in the same region.
RHI holds a 40% carried interest in the RHIOJV, with API
Management Pty Ltd (API), a company controlled by
Baosteel Group Corporation and American Metals & Coal
International, holding the balance and earning up to 80%
by carrying the Company through to the first sale of ore
from the tenements. The RHIOJV accounts for the
substantial portion of API's West Pilbara Iron Ore
Project (WPIOP), which has proven and probable reserves
of 445 million tonnes. The WPIOP was formed to explore
for and develop iron ore resources in the West Pilbara
and has the stated aim of establishing a rail link to a
proposed new port at Anketell Point to facilitate ore
The Company has an election right, up to the time of
first commercial sales of ore, either to continue as a
joint venture participant in the RHIOJV with a 19%
contributing interest (which will involve an obligation
to repay half of API's carry costs out of 80% of the
Company's share of project free cash flow) or to convert
its joint venture interest to a 2% FOB royalty on all RHIOJV production.
RHI has recently completed an Ore Reserve estimate and
Prefeasibility Study for its wholly owned Pannawonica
Project, which contemplates a CID direct shipping
operation from the Company's three Mining Leases.
The Company has also secured a Mining Lease over
porphyry rock outcrops suitable for quarrying products
for proposed nearby mine, road, port and rail
