North Star Stage 2 Magnetite - Geotechnical Investigation

We’re conducting a geotechnical investigation for the North Star Stage 2 project, which is being developed by IB Operations Pty Ltd, a subsidiary of Fortescue Metals Group. The investigation included in-situ testing in diamond cored boreholes and test pits for the proposed process plant and airport infrastructure. We’re completing laboratory testing and classification of materials to assist in the assessment and design of heavy plant infrastructure and runway foundations. Additional field in-situ tests were also completed on suitable rock core samples to make sure they correlated with laboratory tests. Rock strength classifications were also undertaken to assess rock mass rippability.

We’re also doing the study for tailing management for this project by IB Operations Pty Ltd
