Kerman Contracting wins installation contract at Karara Mine

Industrial machinery manufacturer Metso has made new appointments to its executive team, including a new President for its Minerals Services business area.

Karara Mining Limited has awarded Kerman Contracting for the structural, mechanical, and piping installation works for its Tailings Filtration Project.

The construction works are due to commence later this month and will take place at Karara Mining Limited’s mine site in the mid-west region of Western Australia.

The installation works contract comprises the erection of a new tailings filtration building, including installation of associated piping, belt feeders, chutes, tankage and other equipment.

“We are very pleased with the opportunity to be working with KML and look forward to strengthening our business relationship further,” Kerman’s Managing Director Chris Kerman said.

Karara Mining Limited owns and operates one of the largest iron ore mining operations in the mid-west. Karara Mine (located approximately 70km east of Morawa and 100km south of Yalgoo) has an expected economic life exceeding 30 years.

Magnetite ore is concentrated by an on-site processing plant to produce a premium high-grade magnetite concentrate which is transported by train to the Karara Export Terminal in Geraldton for export to China and other international markets.
