New iron industry body in WA

< 1 min read

Formed on 6 October, YIPA Inc’s aims are to:

  • Promote community, indigenous and environmental achievement balanced with sustainable economic development in the region.
  • Promote the interests of prospective and current iron miners located in the Yilgarn region of Western Australia.
  • Promote the development of infrastructure.
  • Promote the exploration and mining of iron.

Incoming YIPA Inc Chairman Gregory Bromley said that the co-operative development of rail and other infrastructure could turn the central Yilgarn into Australia’s next big iron ore powerhouse. This would have a significant economic benefit to the Yigarn-Goldfieds-Esperence area.

Bromley praised the inaugural members for their foresight and said the State Government is supportive of the formation of YIPA and keen to assist.

YIPA’s inaugural members include:

  • Cashmere Iron
  • Cliffs Natural Resources Pty Ltd
  • Fairstar Resources Limited
  • Golden West Resources
  • Hawthorn Resources Limited
  • Legacy Iron Ore Ltd
  • Macarthur Minerals
  • Mindax Ltd
  • Mineral Resources Ltd / Polaris Metals
  • Transit Holdings Ltd
