Situated approximately 340 kilometres south east of Port Hedland, our world-class operation is the only independent iron ore business with West Australian majority ownership. With a defined mineralisation of more than 2.4 billion tonnes of high grade iron ore, enough to sustain a mine life of more than 20 years, Roy Hill is introducing a new wave of innovation, technology and knowledge to Australia’s iron ore industry.

The Roy Hill mine is the largest single-pit iron ore mine in Australia and has an initial mine life of 17 years, with a likely extension beyond that of 12 years. Roy Hill is an owner operator, conventional open pit, drill and blast, truck and excavator bulk mining operation.

Our Technical Services leadership team is now seeking a Senior Planning Engineer to join the group to deliver integrated and tactical value adding solutions.

  • Ongoing detailed analysis of production and fleet performance trends
  • Ensure that any new technology related to mine planning and pit design is researched and understood and where appropriate, develop business cases if it is deemed to be beneficial to the business

Our people are the driving force behind the growth of the business and our success.
