Iron Ore Mining Companies in Western Australia

Iron ore mining companies in Western Australia are crucial to the state’s economy and export market. WA is one of the largest iron ore producing regions in the world. It is estimated that there are over 50 billion tonnes of iron ore still in the ground, so it appears that iron ore mining is here to stay for a long while.

Most iron ore mining in Western Australia is carried out in the north-west of the state in the Pilbara region.

The big players in the WA iron ore mining industry are Rio Tinto, BHP Billiton, FMG and Hancock Prospecting (Roy Hill). This industry and the companies involved directly employ approximately 60,000 jobs, not to mention the knock-on effect of generating work for suppliers and service providers.

If you are looking for a job in the WA Mining sector, the iron ore companies are a great place to start.
