Atlas explores, develops and exports quality Pilbara iron ore like no one else.
We focus on smaller ore bodies and collaborate with contracting partners in a way that adds value for local communities, stakeholders, buyers, partners and government.
OUR OPERATING MODEL
Atlas explores, develops and ships in the direct shipping ore (DSO) format, including Atlas Fines and Atlas Lump. We size and blend ore to the required specifications and export as it is mined.
Our operating model is more agile than that of larger iron ore producers as we focus on mines with smaller footprints, which enables us to provide greater benefits for all. We are not driven to win at any cost – instead, we strongly believe in ensuring win-win benefits for local communities, stakeholders, buyers, partners and government.
We operate a contractor versus owner operated model and are proud of our collaboration with our valued partners across our mining, crushing, screening, haulage and port operations. These partners include NRW, MACA, Ozland, Primero and East West Pilbara Group, MGM Bulk, Intertek (laboratory services), Northern Rise Village Services (Camp service provider) and Assetlink.
Our employees and contractors meet and work as one team to deliver our quality iron ore products.
