-- Magnetite Mines has submitted a formal application to ElectraNet for a proposed 132kV transmission line to be built from Robertstown to the Razorback Iron Ore Project (Razorback) site.
-- The transmission line is designed to carry a load of approximately 40MW for the proposed 2.5–3mtpa stage 1 plant and mining operation to be built at Razorback.
-- It allows the Razorback Iron Ore Project to connect to the National Electricity Market and obtain the benefits of competitively priced, reliable grid electricity with a high renewable content.
-- Magnetite Mines remains on track for a decision to mine in late 2022, targeting first exports of iron ore in late 2024 or early 2025.
-- With an estimated 70% renewable power supply available today, the renewables intensity of the South Australian grid is forecast to be close to 100% when the Razorback iron ore mine commences production.
