BGC Contracting's relationship with Atlas has been a mutually beneficial one as it has seen the two companies significantly grow their businesses together over the past 5 years. 

The Wodgina Iron Ore Project is located at Wodgina mine site approximately 120km South East of Port Hedland. The Project uses conventional open pit mining techniques involving drill, blast, load and haul methods with an initial mining production rate of 18 Mtpa, increasing to 22 Mtpa. Ore crushing and screening were undertaken using existing infrastructure at the Wodgina mine by Atlas Iron Ore Limited (through CSI Crushing).

BGC Contracting was awarded work for the load, haul and dump of 26 million BCM of ore and waste including maintenance of the mine’s road infrastructure and breaking of oversize rock.

Three years after commencing work at the Wodgina mine, BGC Contracting was awarded their second greenfield mining project with Atlas Iron for contract mining services at Atlas' Mt. Webber mine.
