Muswellbrook – Background information

Tom Price, mining town, northwestern Western Australia. It is situated in the Pilbara region, in the Hamersley Range area near Mount Tom Price, the site of major high-grade deposits of hematite. It was built during 1965–66 by Hamersley Iron Proprietary Ltd. as the residential and service center for workers at the huge open-cut iron-ore mine at Mount Tom Price. The town and the mountain were named for Thomas Moore Price, a vice president of the American company Kaiser Steel Ltd. who encouraged mining development in the Hamersley Range. Millions of tons of iron ore are sent by rail annually 180 miles (290 km) to the deep-sea port of Dampier for shipment, mainly to China and Japan. 

Mining operations in Tom Price

Rio Tinto’s Greater Tom Price production includes the Tom Price, Western Turner Syncline Phase 1 and Western Turner Syncline Phase 2 satellite hubs. Big Tom Price is part of Hamersley Iron Operation. All of Hamersley Iron’s mines are conventional open pits using track and shovel mining method with preliminary drilling and blasting. The drill holes are filled with an explosive, and then charged. The resulting blast breaks the material to a size required for digging. The broken material is loaded for transport by face shovels, excavators or front-end loaders into haul trucks. Overland conveyors are used to transport partially crushed feed at distances between the pits and process plants.

GRT Case Study – Tom Price, Western Australia

Western Australia accounts for about 98 per cent of Australia’s Economic Demonstrated Resources (EDR) of iron ore, which is around 28 billion tonnes. Much of this is found in the State’s Hamersley Province, one of the world’s major iron ore provinces. This case study highlights GRT’s ongoing contributions to mining dust suppression in Western Australia. 

GRT dust suppression applications and products 

Drilling: The economic value of drilling operations should not happen at the expense of worker safety and health. It is important to implement industry best practice to ensure dust produced from drilling do not pose any health hazards to the mineworkers. We offer effective blast and drill dust control. 

ProductGRT: 12X 

Blasting: GRT takes a no-compromise stance to save lives and its sole mandate is to offer solutions at the apex of solving any dust-related problem arising from blasting activities before it takes place. We offer effective blast pattern dust suppression solutions. 

ProductGRT: DC Binder 

Haul roads: Reports indicate that a mine site uses 9.4 million litres of water per day on just its haul road activities. Water is not only unsustainable but also very ineffective as a haul road dust suppression method. Using GRT:Haul-Loc results in great operational improvement and massive cost savings in water usage and fuel used for water truck movements. 

ProductGRT: Haul-Loc 

Stockpiles: We have grown a rapport across many industries for tackling stockpile dust challenges on different sites. Mining is one of our major areas. So, why wait to hear it from elsewhere when you can get it first hand from us.


Conveyor belts: GRT implements a combination of chemistry and particle size in making water work for conveyor belt dust control. We wet the material to optimal moisture content, preventing fines from being carried off into the air, or to the air above the material, to return airborne fines to the material bed. The material doesn’t have to be handled again.
