Karara Iron Ore Project – Mine Life Extension

Project
Proposal description: 

Karara Mining Limited is seeking to revise its approved Karara Iron Ore Project.  The revised proposal is to support the ongoing operation of the magnetite mining and processing operation, approximately 225 kilometres east-southeast of Geraldton and 320 kilometres north-northeast of Perth, in the Midwest region of Western Australia.  

The revised proposal includes additional ground disturbance to support the revised Life of Mine strategy, including a revised development envelope, extension of the tailings storage facility and waste rock landform, and incorporation of infrastructure. 

The revised proposal would consist of an additional disturbance of 1,407 ha, with a total disturbance area no greater than 4,435 hectares; and a revised development envelope of 13,763 ha.   

The proposal is predicted to have a mine life of approximately 40 years
