Wodgina - Australia

Wodgina is located approximately 100 kilometres south-east of Port Hedland in the  north-west of Western Australia.

Among our various mining interests in Western Australia, Wodgina is one of the world's largest hard rock tantalum resources. Since it was discovered in 1902, the ore body has been mined for tin, tantalum and beryl. Tantalum production began in 1905, with most early production sourced from alluvial and eluvial deposits.

While we sold the Wodgina tenements in 2016 to a third party, we retain all rights to the tantalum resource at Wodgina as well as at other locations in the Pilbara region.

Any tantalum produced at Wodgina is sent to our Greenbushes mining operation for secondary processing where we produce on-specification, saleable tantalum products.
