Pilbara Region, Western Australia
Kiewit completed the engineer, procure, and construct contract for a wet front end for an existing ore processing facility at the Cloudbreak iron ore mine. The improvements allow the mine to process wetter ore with more fines than the facility could previously handle. The scope of work included civil, concrete, structural steel, piping, mechanical and electrical.
The Cloudbreak Mine is located near the Chichester Ranges in the Pilbara Region of Western Australia about 150 kilometres north of Newman which is located about 1,186 kilometres (737 miles) north of Perth, and 9 kilometres (5.6 miles) north of the Tropic of Capricorn.
