A major integrated iron ore project producing magnetite concentrate over several decades will be the Karara Project, located 225km east of Geraldton in Western Australia`s mid west.
Gindalbie Metals and its Chinese joint venture partner Ansteel received final approval for the project in late 2009 and a number of work contracts were awarded shortly after.
Another significant contract, worth over $60m was also awarded last week for the Karara project.
AusGroup subsidiary AGC Industries has won the early works contract, to supply structural, mechanical and piping installation works for the iron ore process plant at Karara.

The AusGroup contract involves all mechanical disciplines, scaffolding, rigging and procurement of piping for the main process plan contract.
Mobilisation to site will commence this month.
AusGroup’s Managing Director John Sheridan said the early works deal was a significant opportunity to develop a long-term relationship with Gindalbie and Ansteel, representing ongoing employment opportunities.
