HAVE you ever wondered what it looks like inside the Rio Tinto Weipa operations?
Now you have the chance to find out as Rio Tinto invites the local community to participate in the upcoming family and community site visits throughout August and September.
This unique opportunity will give a behind-the-scenes tour of Rio Tinto’s Andoom and Amrun bauxite operations.
Think loads of bauxite being mined by heavy loaders and loaded into haul trucks, all happening right in front of your eyes! You will also be able to get up close to some of their trucks and heavy vehicles and learn how bauxite becomes the aluminium used in everyday life.
“We look forward to welcoming the community for the first time to see behind the scenes of our Weipa operations,” said Rio Tinto Weipa general manager Shona Markham.
“Bring the family, it will be a fantastic day!”
Registration is required and accompanied children aged four and over are welcome.
Participants will be required to comply with safety requirements and wear protective gear during the visit.
