Karara Mining is the first major operation in the Mid West, WA’s most exciting new iron ore region!
The operations, located 225km inland from Geraldton in the WA Mid West region is the result of a $2.57 billion project which has been in development since early 2009 and is currently in the final phase of construction.
Karara Mining will require a permanent workforce of approximately 600 on a long-term basis once in full production. We are pleased to launch our Operations Recruitment Campaign to recruit up to 200 permanent employees in coming months, as production commences and ramps up to a Stage 1 level of 10Mtpa.
This is made up of a first shipment from the 8Mtpa magnetite project, which is scheduled for the September Quarter of this year and production of direct shipping ore, (DSO) which has been underway since March 2011 and is ramping up to 2Mtpa.
Further expansion is expected to follow, with the known resources at Karara being sufficient to support production of 30Mtpa for more than 30 years!
We are building a new mining province of Western Australia and our team enjoy the variety, learning opportunities and sense of achievement in creating this new operation.
In our employees own words:
“I mostly enjoy it for the lifestyle. The 8/6 roster is fantastic as it allows me to spend much more quality time with my family & friends. While on-site I am enjoying the interaction with fellow staff members/contractors and the variety that my position offers (In past employment I was stuck in a cubicle in front of a PC screen for 8 plus hours per day). It is also a very exciting & dynamic industry to be involved in, particularly at this early stage, where I get to see the project develop from the ground up (things almost seem to be changing every day)”.
“The people I work with and the opportunity to learn about the whole business. In larger organisations you might only get to look at a small part but at Karara I’ve been able to learn different things”
“It is very rewarding to be working for a new company from the start, going from construction into operations. In my role I meet and deal with a diverse group of people within the company and also in the wider communities. My job involves numerous different tasks, so no day is ever the same”
“In this role it provides an opportunity to make Karara a role model helping Aboriginal people gain employment to better their lifestyles. Mining and Construction can provide a pathway to economic development for Aboriginal people”.
Together we are building a better tomorrow for:
Our People. Our Families. Our Community. Our Shareholders. Our Future.
Have a look at what the “Karara Kan Do” approach has achieved so far:
KML CEO Steve Murdoch said he believed that Karara Mining had a strong advantage in the current highly competitive market for human resources in Western Australia, largely because of its size and location relative to the major population centres of the State’s south-west corner.
“Karara is just a short 30 minute flight from Geraldton, 45 minutes from Perth and 60 minutes from Bunbury. That’s a very appealing option for people currently commuting to other regions of Western Australia such as the Pilbara and the Kimberley.
“Because of the Project’s size and locational advantages, we are able to offer appealing fly-in, fly-out options accessible from across Western Australia.
“When it comes to lifestyle, family and social choices, we believe this is a very important selling point and consideration for employees who might consider Karara as an option when pursuing their career in the mining and resource sector.
“In light of the debate that continues to rage about the social impacts of fly-in, fly-out operations, including the effect on families and couples who have to endure lengthy periods of separation while they pursue their careers in the mining industry, Karara offers a significant point of difference when compared to other locations.
“Our accommodation villages are brand new and offer high quality facilities including mobile coverage, internet, swimming pool, mini golf, tennis, cricket, gym and volleyball,” Steve added. “This is a fantastic opportunity to be part of a world-class operation.”
Steve Murdoch said the recruitment drive would have people in place from March 2012, with the Company targeting innovative and technically capable professionals.
Roles required include management and professionals including Superintendent Metallurgy, Utilities, technical professionals in Engineering, Environment and Accounting and Site leadership in Human Resources and Training. Operations staff requirements include Maintenance electricians, Electrical Supervisors, Mechanical maintenance fitters, Process operators and Supervisors and Maintenance planners to join its processing department.
