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
  • Equipment supply and maintenance

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.

Exploration Rehab Success

Buru Rehab recently completed rehab works for a remote exploration site in the Pilbara, inclusive of new rehab and rectification of historical rehab.

In these environments, ripping on contour and managing surface water flows is always critical to long term rehab success.

Drones were used for before and after survey pickup and to ensure we leave a legacy of successful rehab of country.
