    Proud work with BHP in the Pilbara

    CPB Contractors was selected by BHP Iron Ore to deliver the construction of bulk earthworks, concrete and underground services for the South Flank project in Western Australia’s Pilbara region.

    Construction commenced in July and concluded in September 2020.

    CPB Contractors has delivered significant resources infrastructure projects for the major mining clients in the iron ore industry, with our team continuing to contribute to Australian mining across all sectors.

    The South Flank development works help to ensure that the Mining Area C precinct becomes one of the largest standalone iron ore processing centres in the world, and it was our privilege to again be working with BHP to deliver high-quality assets of long-term value.

    Our extensive mining and resources experience and long history in the Pilbara mean we can offer comprehensive construction capabilities, certainty of delivery, and high standards of safety and quality.

    We also focussed on a procurement strategy that provided participation, employment and training opportunities for Indigenous enterprises and local businesses, towards broader community benefits.

    The South Flank development is one component of BHP’s strategy to increase the mining, processing and out-loading capacity of the Mining Area C hub.

    CPB Contractors undertook works in and around the existing rail loop, including:

    • Earthworks and concrete works to support the expansion and duplication of the existing rail loop and stockyard;
    • Earthworks and concrete works for the development of a new ore processing plant and train load-out facilities; and
    • Underground services, including electrical and water services, for the above work.

    The Mining Area C precinct is located approximately 120km north-west of Newman in the Pilbara region of Western Australia.
