Port Augusta Operations & Port Playford

Content Image

Port Augusta Operations is an Australian owned and operated resource and logistics company.

This new export facility is part of a vertically integrated group of companies with interests in the exploration, mining, logistics, marketing and export of iron ore.

Port Augusta Operations is proposing to transform the former Port Augusta power station site into a bulk commodity export terminal with an initial focus on iron ore. Our proposed $40 million investment will see the return of commercial shipping to Port Augusta for the first time in 50 years.

Port Playford will include upgraded existing as well as new facilities and infrastructure specifically designed to handle and transport up to 5 million tonnes per annum of iron ore from mines in South Australia bound for the export market.

This new port will be known as Port Playford in recognition of the former Premier Sir Thomas Playford and his role in the establishment of the Leigh Creek Coalfield and Port Augusta Power Station.

It is anticipated Port Playford will be operational by late 2022.
