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 (66.7% Fe) from the project has demonstrated it can assist steel mill customers lift productivity and better manage tightening environmental standards. 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.

Longer-term opportunities for Cape Hardy revolve around its proximity to large-scale renewable energy resources and potential for green hydrogen development.  South Australia’s hydrogen export prospectus recognises the ideal location of Cape Hardy on the Eyre Peninsula, connecting renewable resources with an indicative distance to the port of 60 kilometres, and the potential for small-scale and large-scale green hydrogen export ranging from 60,000 - 250,000 tonnes per annum. The potential to leverage the region’s rich endowment of renewable energy resources to drive wider economic growth opportunities for the State, through the CEIP and enabling export infrastructure has been recognised by the Federal Government via a $25 million grant commitment for Cape Hardy that will benefit multiple existing and future industries.
