Atlas Iron is an Australian mining company and an iron ore explorer, developer and producer, predominantly active in the Pilbara region. The company operates three iron ore mines in Western Australia. In 2018 Atlas will expand its operation to start processing Lithium in a deal with Pilbara Minerals.
Atlas became Australia's newest iron ore producer when it commenced production at Pardoo in late 2008.
The company plans to lift production from its Pilbara operations to 12 million tonnes of iron ore by 2014. Of these, 10 million tonnes are scheduled to come from the new Turner River hub, which is to blend and process ore from the company's northern Pilbara projects, located at Wodgina, Abydos and Mt Webber.
