Dordabis Project Overview

The Dordabis project will be an open pit mining operation using a conventional gravity and magnetic separation processing route to produce 2.0 MTPY of high grade iron ore concentrates (68% Fe) with an expected life of mine of over 17 years.


The Dordabis project is located 20km north of the town of Dordabis and 75km south east of the capital city of Namibia, Windhoek. The mine site is 522km via rail from the deep water port of Walvis Bay.
