Summary: The proponent, Hamersley Iron Pty Limited, proposes a change to the approved Western Turner Syncline Iron Ore Project which is located approximately 20 km west of Tom Price. 

The Western Turner Syncline Project consists of the following two approved proposals:

1. Western Turner Syncline, Section 10 Iron Ore Project (Ministerial Statement 807, 17 September 2009) for an above water table open-cut mine and link to the existing Tom Price Mine operation with an infrastructure corridor; and
