Cairn Hill



Cairn Hill is located on Ingomar Station in northern South Australia, 850km north-west of Adelaide and 55km south-east of acclaimed opal mining town of Coober Pedy

After an extensive $20 million upgrade, Cu-River commenced iron ore exports in June 2016 and produced and exported one million tonnes of ore in its first 12 months of operations.

The ore was hauled from the site to the Rankin Dam Rail Siding via a single lane Stuart Highway underpass, constructed to ensure the ore is transported safely and efficiently, then transported along the Darwin-Adelaide rail line to Port Adelaide for export.

Cu-River then went into a production halt while it developed its plans for an expansion of the mine.

With the recent approval of our PEPR we have started activities to re-open the mine and re-commence production.
