SIMEC Mining Inner Harbour in Whyalla, South Australia SIMEC Mining’s Inner Harbour operation is located at Whyalla Port, on the western shores of the upper Spencer Gulf in South Australia.
Whyalla has a rich history in steel with the first discovery of Iron Ore occurring in the region in the mid-1800s. By the end of 1901, Whyalla (then known as Hummock Hill) was born, as the construction of a jetty to load the ore onto barges started, and the population of the town began to grow.
Today, Whyalla Port deals with much higher tonnages, exporting iron ore to customers around the world.
At SIMEC Mining’s Inner Harbour operation at Whyalla port, product spillage generally occurs due to inadequate material containment, coupled with high tonnages.
