About Us

Carpentaria Resources (ASX code: CAP) is an emerging producer of iron ore in eastern Australia.

The company currently has a majority interest in the Hawsons Iron Project, in addition to other magnetite interests in the emerging Braemar Iron Province.

Hawsons Iron Project – Biggest iron ore project in eastern Australia:

Carpentaria's Hawsons Iron Project (Hawsons) is the largest magnetite discovery in eastern Australia. Carpentaria owns 66.5%. Only 60 kilometres from Broken Hill, Hawsons has access to established rail, road, port and power infrastructure in a region with a long, proud mining history and a town with generations of skilled mining workers.

  • Hawsons Magnetite project is different and better than other magnetite projects.
  • The targeted cost structure is extremely competitive placing it at the head of the development queue.
  • The technical and permitting pathway is clear and achievable.
  • The soft siltstone ore and clean magnetite crystals allows for simple liberation of a high purity concentrate with low energy (low costs) and without the technical challenges of all other hard rock magnetite projects.
  • The existing spare capacity on the existing infrastructure, including rail, port, power, water and workforce means that development costs and timeframes are much lower and shorter than other magnetite projects.
  • The JORC inferred and indicated Resources of 2.5 billion tonnes - at a magnetite recovery of 14% (Davis Tube Recovery at a 9.5% cut off) for 348 million tonnes of high grade (69.7% Fe) concentrate - is large enough to sustain a long term operation and with potential for extension.
  • A development case has been set at 10 million tonnes per annum of high value, high quality feed for the growing premium pellet feed market.

In February 2017, Hawsons was declared a 'State Significant Development' by the New South Wales State Government, with the company now focused on launching a bankable feasibility study, securing a mining lease and starting production as early as 2020.

Carpentaria's tag-line describes our passion: "We find it. We prove it. We make it possible".
