Mining major BHP has approved a $184-million initial investment into the South Flank iron-ore project, in the Pilbara.

The South Flank operation will leverage and expand on the existing Mining Area C hub, and is BHP’s preferred option to replace the 80-million-tonne-a-year Yandi mine, which will reach the end of its mine-life in early- to mid-2020.
