Marillana Creek Mine at Yandicoogina

Fluor was awarded a contract by BHP Iron Ore Ltd. to perform engineering, procurement and construction management of the Marillana Creek Mine facilities including a stacker, loadout tunnel and 32 kilometres of new, heavy-haul railway to link to BHP's existing rail system.

The project took just 10 months from earthworks to production and earned BHP Iron Ore the Institution of Engineers Western Australia Award for outstanding engineering achievement in the Resource Development Category.

The Marillana project was one of two major developments of the high-purity iron ore deposit at Yandicoogina.
