Atlas Iron Limited has received final environmental approval from the Western Australian Minister for Environment for the Pardoo DSO Project.

The Pardoo Iron Ore Project is located 75 km by road from the port of Port Hedland, in the Pilbara of Western Australia.

“The company is the first to take advantage of third party port and rail infrastructure access in the history of mining in the Pilbara,” Atlas managing director David Flanagan said.

According to Flanagan, the company’s upgrade of the Pardoo Project to 3 Mtpa and the approval for the Abydos project to operate at 3 Mtpa is expected late this year.
