About Iron Road

Iron Road is the 100% owner of the Central Eyre Iron Project (CEIP), an advanced, long-life iron ore mining, beneficiation and infrastructure development opportunity on the Eyre Peninsula, South Australia. High quality iron concentrate product from the project has demonstrated it can assist steel mill customers lift productivity and better manage tightening environmental standards, trends that are expected to accelerate as the global steel industry seeks to progressively decarbonise. The planned export facility at Cape Hardy is designed to be South Australia’s first Capesize capable port and both the port and industrial precinct will be developed over a number of stages. Infrastructure Australia has identified the potential for Cape Hardy to ultimately integrate to the Australian National Rail Network which would provide the basis for a world class multi-user bulk shipment port that can service central and southern regional Australia.

Green manufacturing and industrial precinct opportunities for Cape Hardy revolve around its proximity to large-scale renewable energy resources and potential for green hydrogen and ammonia production. The South Australian government’s hydrogen export prospectus recognises the ideal location of Cape Hardy on the Eyre Peninsula, with leverage to the region’s rich endowment of renewable energy resources. Wider economic growth opportunities for the State, through the CEIP and enabling export infrastructure, has been recognised by the Australian Government that will benefit multiple existing and future industries. To date, Iron Road has invested more than $180 million in advancing the company’s asset base.
