Operations at the Fortescue Metals Group Solomon Hub in the Pilbara are progressively resuming after a fatality yesterday.

Fortescue said the fatality was David Armstrong, who the company said was a much loved and respected member of the Fortescue family.

“Ore processing activity has recommenced and mining activity is progressively resuming,” Fortescue said. 

“Fortescue continues to work closely with all relevant authorities on the incident investigation. 

“The health, safety and wellbeing of all Fortescue team members is the company’s highest priority. 

“A range of support services are available across all sites, including the Fortescue Chaplains and Employee Assistance Program and assistance is being provided to our Solomon operations team members to support them during this difficult time. 

“Fortescue’s guidance for FY22 shipments, C1 cost and capital expenditure remains unchanged.”
