Summary:

Commercial operations commenced in Jan 2021 and by the year-end BAMIN has produced more than 1 mtpa of iron ore.

High-quality products: direct shipping ore (DSO) and direct reduction pellet feed (DRPF).

The mine will use a dry-stack tailings storage facility.

Design capacity of 26 mtpa, expandable to >40 mtpa.
