WIM has three core HMS Projects: Avonbank, Wedderburn, and Bungalally, which form a Global Resource Inventory of nearly 1 billion tonnes of ore. Each project is well serviced by local and regional infrastructure, including: existing rail, power supply, surface water supply, roads, and operational bulk and containerised ports.
The Avonbank Project is WIM's flagship HMS project, with a Proven and Probable Reserve of 311.8 million tonnes (Mt). Avonbank is currently at an advanced stage of development, with the recent completion of a test pit and demonstration plant at site.
