Event - October 2021 – Port Hedland – a national treasure

More than 50 years ago, no-one could have envisaged the size and scale of the resources industry in the Pilbara today and the volume of exports through the Port of Port Hedland.

Fast forward to 2021 and the resources sector has saved the national and WA economies from the upheaval wrought by COVID-19 — with the Port at the centre of exports valued at billions of dollars.

Today the Port and its supply chain supports one in every 12 WA jobs.

Join the WA Mining Club at its October luncheon to hear from mining industry and Government leaders as they discuss expansion plans, the economic and social value produced by the Port of Port Hedland and the Pilbara, the outlook for iron ore and future-facing minerals, and the scope for improvements through technological advancements from pit to port.

Our panel of speakers will comprise

  • Mark Komene – General Manager – Fortescue Hedland Operations , Fortescue Metals Group
  • Meath Hammond – Head of Corporate Affairs Western Australia, BHP
  • Lyle Banks –  General Manager Development and Trade, Pilbara Ports Authority

and moderated by

  • Kirsty Danby – Chief Executive Officer, Port Hedland Industries Council

They will share valuable insights as Port Hedland enters a sustained period of growth and diversification that will offer opportunities for businesses directly linked to the Port supply chain and beyond, and as plans are developed to expand the Port’s capacity to build on Pilbara Ports Authority’s most-recent record annual throughput.

Speakers will share their companies’ plans on reducing emissions, fast-tracking and promoting programs for sustainable operations as part of their ESG obligations, and the mining sector’s vital role in supplying the metals and minerals for a decarbonised future.

With thanks to our sponsors
