                                    PROJECT SUMMARY
                                    Calibre Engenium is designing and constructing a 47 km railway extension from
                                    the existing railroad infrastructure in the Pilbara to a new iron ore mine site and
                                    crushing facility at Mesa A.

                                    The Mesa A Railway Project involves the construction of approximately 47 km of
                                    standard gauge, 37tonne per axle capacity railway, from the existing Deepdale
                                    Mainline to the proposed new mine at Mesa A.

                                    The rail will culminate in a load-out loop at the Mesa A mine. The load-out loop
                                    will include a spur for cutting out bad order cars and be of sufficient length to
                                    store a loaded and empty train.

                                    The railway scope of work also includes the construction of an additional siding
                                    (Churdy Pool) on the existing mainline consisting of a passing track and spur, as
                                    well as a bridge, 280m in length, where the proposed railway line crosses the
                                    Robe River.

                                    Calibre Engenium is the Engineering, Procurement, Construction Management
                                    consultant that represents Rio Tinto for the design and construction of the Mesa
                                    A Railway Project.

                                    The railway is located in the West Pilbara region of North Western Australia, with
                                    access to the railway corridor being approximately 160 km South West of
                                    Karratha, in close proximity to the North West Coastal Highway.
