Wodgina is located approximately 100 kilometres south-east of Port Hedland in the north-west of Western Australia.
Wodgina is one of the world's largest hard rock tantalum resources. Since it was discovered in 1902, the ore body has been mined for tin, tantalum and beryl. Tantalum production began in 1905, with most early production sourced from alluvial and alluvial deposits.
The minesite is currently under care and maintenance.
