Fortescue Chief Executive Officer, Elizabeth Gaines, said, “The Fortescue team has delivered
excellent results for the June quarter, with record iron ore shipments of 49.5 million tonnes. This
outstanding operating performance has resulted in record FY22 shipments of 189 million tonnes, exceeding the top end of guidance. This was achieved in a challenging operating environment due to the impact of COVID-19 throughout the financial year. Despite industry-wide and global headwinds, Fortescue’s unique culture and Values has delivered these exceptional results and I am immensely proud of the performance of the team.
“We maintain a strong focus on safety and a commitment to zero harm, with TRIFR improving to 1.8 in the 12 months to 30 June 2022, 10 per cent lower than 2.0 at 30 June 2021. This reflects our core Value of Safety and the commitment to look out for our workmates and ourselves.

“Fortescue continued to significantly advance its decarbonisation objectives in the quarter, as evidenced by the strategic partnership with Tier 1 global equipment manufacturer Liebherr for the
development and supply of zero emission green mining haul trucks. The agreement leverages the capabilities and value created through Fortescue’s acquisition of Williams Advanced Engineering.
“Building on another year of record performance, our guidance for FY23 reflects our ongoing
commitment to optimising returns from our integrated operations and marketing strategy, with total
shipments in the range of 187 - 192 million tonnes.
“We remain focused on innovation and productivity to maintain our industry leading cost position and deliver strong operational performance. Together with our focus on investing in growth through the Iron Bridge Magnetite project and Fortescue Future Industries, we are well placed to advance
our transition to a global green energy and resources company and ensure our stakeholders continue to benefit from Fortescue’s success,” Ms Gaines said.

across the entire supply chain and the successful integration of Eliwana which commenced operations in January 2021.
