Summary

The Mount Tom Price Mine in Western Australia produces iron ore. Mining at Mount Tom Price yields about 19-20 million tonnes of ore each year. The mine was developed in 1966, and is a massive ore body eight kilometres long and more than one kilometre wide. The operation involves mining, crushing and dry processing high-grade rich hematite iron ore to produce lump and fines, which are blended into products. Today the Mount Tom Price Mine is owned by Hamersley Iron and operated by Pilbara iron. Taken from http://www.north.com.au/library/reports/PDFs/11_tom%20price.pdf
