Nelson Point Rescreening

Location: Port Hedland

Client: BHP

Key Objectives:

  • Screen contaminated product, removing contaminants and loading onto trains ready for export
  • Stockpile management including rehandle of processed piles being either oversized, lump or fines
  • Dust suppression, including during screening

Buru Rehab undertook rescreening of 450,000t of contaminated iron ore at Nelson Point. Operations consisted of pre-scalping ore using a 67t Excavator with a skeleton bucket to remove oversize and large waste. A 36t Excavator was used to feed the 953 screener and a 24m radial stacker was stockpiling the fines. A 988 loader tailed out the lump and a WA600 was used to load rakes with both lump and fines.
