Goldsworthy Information

  • General 2015-05-10
    In February 1962, three international mining companies: Consolidated Goldfields (Aust) Pty Ltd of Sydney, Cyprus Mines Corporation of Los Angeles and Utah Mining Company of San Francisco formed Mount Goldsworthy Mining Associates (GML). The consortium was granted an export licence in early 1963 to ship 4 million tonnes of iron ore per year from a port to be built at Finucane Island at Port Hedland, 100 km west. The consortium signed a contract with Japanese steel mills in February 1965 with a stipulation that the first shipment of ore had to me made within 15 months. Construction of the port and town commenced in February 1965 and the first rail-delivery of iron ore was made to Finucane Island on 1 December 1965, and the first of 24,900 tonnes of ore was loaded at Finucane island onto the Harvey S. Mudd on was 26 June 1966. 700 people lived at Goldsworthy at its peak. The town was abandoned when the iron ore deposit was depleted and the mine it served closed in 1994. Upon closure, all buildings were removed, all vegetation not indigenous to the local area was burnt and the roads torn up. This was done in accordance with the government's policy of regrowth to avoid the occurrence of ghost towns.
