Red Hawk Mining announces haulage partnership with MGM Bulk

Red Hawk Mining has entered a strategic partnership with MGM Bulk, to haul iron ore from its Blacksmith Iron Ore Project to the Utah Point Bulk Handling Facility in Port Hedland, Western Australia.

The haulage agreement enables Red Hawk and MGM Bulk to work collaboratively through the Pre-Feasibility Study (PFS) and Definitive Feasibility Study (DFS) phases to develop and optimise the transport and logistics strategy, focusing on maximising productivity and reducing unit operating costs.

Following completion of the studies, MGM Bulk has the exclusive right to enter into a Haulage Services Agreement on terms equivalent to those contained in the DFS.

“We are excited to work with the team at MGM Bulk to establish a haulage strategy optimised for the Blacksmith Project,” said Red Hawk Managing Director, Steven Michael.

“MGM Bulk’s operations in the Pilbara, centred around delivering iron ore into the Utah Point, are second to none.

“Their fleet size, quality, operational performance and safety record are critical factors in ensuring the success of the Blacksmith Project.

“Our PFS team is working closely with MGM Bulk’s commercial and operations team to deliver operating and capital cost estimates with a high degree of certainty, which can easily be translated into an operational haulage contract.”

MGM Bulk will be responsible for providing a fleet of 150-tonne ultra-quad trucks and drivers plus associated loading and other equipment and infrastructure.

MGM Bulk CEO, Michael Giacci, said the company is pleased to partner with Red Hawk.

“We are immensely proud to be forging a long-term partnership with Red Hawk Mining on the mine-to-port haulage solutions for their Blacksmith Iron Ore Project,” he said.
