Carina is a small surface mine in Yilgarn region of Western Australia. It is owned by mining services contractor and miner, Mineral Resources. The mine is 60 kilometres north-east of the Koolyanobbing mine and approximately 370 kilometres north-east of Perth. It is a relatively high cost mine because of its long raw haul and use of third party rail. Carina's CFR costs are further inflated by its use of the Kwinana port which is limited to Handymax vessels. Mineral Resources is investigating ways to get capacity at Esperance port, which is capable of accepting Capesize ships.
