Overview

Iluka holds a royalty over iron ore produced from specific tenements of BHP's Mining Area C (MAC) province in Western Australia. The royalty results from a 1994 restructure of deferred payments owed to Consolidated Gold Fields Australia, an Iluka antecedent.

MAC is a large iron ore mining area located in the Pilbara region in the North of Western Australia, operated by BHP Billiton. The agreement provides for a revenue-based royalty and production capacity payments consisting of:
  • ongoing quarterly royalty payments of 1.232 per cent of ‚ÄčAustralian denominated revenue from the MAC Royalty Area; and
  • a series of one-off payments of AUD$1 million per million tonne increase in the annual production level from the MAC Royalty Area during any 12 month period ending 30 June above the previous highest annual production level.

For information on the MAC royalty’s financial contribution, please refer to the latest company results.
