Simandou Project

It is developed in partnership with the Government of Guinea, Rio Tinto, Chalco and the IFC. The Simandou mountain range contains one of the largest ore deposits with high iron content.

Simandou is the largest mining, railway and port project under construction in the world.

The project will also generate demand for electricity, urban infrastructure, housing and a high demand for services to support the direct and indirect employees of the project. Initial assessments of growth potential throughout the corridor suggest a possible contribution of USD 3 billion additional to GDP.
