Bukit Besi Iron Ore Mine

The Bukit Besi Mine is an open pit mine that enjoys an abundance of public utilities and infrastructure. Thanks to our prior experience in iron ore deposits within the vicinity, the Group was able to quickly deploy a Joint Ore Reserves Committee (JORC) compliant drill campaign in early 2017. With our deep knowledge of the local geography and people, we quickly expanded our operations from one drill rig to five drill rigs in less than a year.

Iron Ore Mining and Production Process
The iron ore mineralisation in the Bukit Besi Mine is fresh rock with very little weathering, which can only be accessed through blasting.
