West Angelas Mine, Western Australia, Australia – Sept 11, 2002: Pilbara Railway Company locomotives 9470/9472 (“Yellowtails”) loading iron ore into Robe River ore cars at the West Angelas loadout in Australia’s remote Pilbara region in Western Australia. Australia’s resources boom and mineral exports have kept the country’s economy strong during the global economic crisis. The iron ore is in constant demand by China’s rapid economic development. Formed in 2001, the Pilbara Rail Company operated and maintained the rail assets of Hamersley Iron and Robe Rive Iron Associates and railed ore from Hamersley and Robe mines. In 2005 Pilbara Rail was folded into Pilbara Iron, a wholly owned subsidiary of the Rio Tinto Group (that manages assets for Hamersley Iron Pty Ltd, a wholly owned subsidiary of Rio Tinto), and Robe River Iron Associates (an unincorporated joint venture between Rio and three Japanese steel companies).
Description
Two powerful Pilbara Rail locomotives known colloquially as “Yellowtails” load iron ore at the Rio Tinto mine at West Angelas in Australia’s remote Pilbara region. Mauve mullah mullah wildflowers provide a colourful contrast to the mining scene with a line of loaded ore cars stretching to the background. A large stockpile of iron ore dwarfs the train and in turn is dwarfed by a line of ranges. The mine’s loading equipment is also visible in the background.
