Brockman Resources is aiming to implement a deal with Fortescue Metals Group or Aquila Resources to develop its West Pilbara assets.

The miner would look to gain access to either Fortescue or Aquila’s project ore rail lines, which are planned to run within 30 kilometres of Brockman’s lower profile West Pilbara hematite iron ore assets.

The hub is also located 60 kilometres from the Rio Tinto Iron Ore railways.

All three rail lines have the potential to link up with the recently approved Anketell Port development.

Brockman released an announcement yesterday, outlining mineralisation grading of up to 64% Fe at the site, with an exploration target of 20 to 30 million tonnes of low stripping ratio direct shipping iron ore.

Overall, exploration targets for the West Pilbara hub have been set at between 80 to 100 million tonnes of iron ore.
