Roy Hill represents the next generation of integrated iron ore mine, rail and port ­­­operations in the Pilbara region of Western Australia. 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.

  • Ensure that the plan meets the Operating Strategy and Operational KPIs and is developed with the simulation model results which determines the business constraints and determines the sequence in which the plan will be undertaken
  • Prepare and present a range of alternative plans based on business needs and varied input constraints, as required from the business
  • Work to continuously improve the planning processes and tools to increase accuracy, predictability and reliability of the plans
  • Foster collaborative relationships between Planning, Scheduling, Marketing, Technical Services, Maintenance Planning teams, Business Improvement and Operations
