Report summary

Karara is a magnetite mine in the Midwest region of Western Australia. The project was developed by Karara Mining Limited; a 50:50 joint venture between Gindalbie Metals, a listed Australian mining company and Chinese steelmaker Anshan Iron and Steel (AnSteel), which also has an offtake agreement for 100% of production over the life of the mine. Karara Phase 1 has a concentrate capacity of 8.8Mtpa. In early 2016, Ansteel stated that it was no longer able to provide funding support for Karara putting the continuation of mining in jeopardy.
