Brockman Mining submits proposal to Fortescue Metals for access to rail in Pilbara
Brockman Mining (ASX:BCK) is attempting to gain access to the "below rail" infrastructure in the Pilbara owned by Fortescue Metals Group (ASX: FMG).
The stakes are high as Brockman is seeking rail access to allow it to haul up to 20 million tonnes of hematite iron ore product per annum from Marillana, for a term of 20 years.
Other options are also being evaluated by Brockman focused on securing an infrastructure solution that enables it to commercialise its Marillana Project.
The access proposal, made under section 8 of the Western Australia Railways (Access) Code, would see Brockman seek acccess to Fortescue's TPI’s railway infrastructure from approximately the 219 km point on the TPI mainline.
At this point Brockman would then construct a rail spur to its Marillana Iron Ore Project, to approximately the 23 km point on the TPI mainline near Port Hedland, where Brockman would construct a rail spur to connect with the proposed North West Infrastructure facilities in Port Hedland.
An analysis of the TPI railway infrastructure and Fortescue’s operations conducted by Indec Consulting concludes that there will be sufficient capacity available for the Access Rights to be provided by TPI, which would complement its existing railway operations.
Brockman does not seek access to TPI’s above-rail services, as haulage services would be provided by an experienced haulage operator.
Recent statements by Fortescue provide some encouragement for Brockman which advocated its support and provision of third party access on its TPI rail system on a commercial basis.
