"At its peak Karara was one of the largest construction projects in Australia, employing over 2500 people. It will provide long term employment for over 500 people and opportunity for the Mid-West region.

"Steve [Murdoch's] strong leadership has been absolutely pivotal in delivering this world-scale resource project.

"Now that construction and development are complete, commissioning well-advanced and with Karara now moving to steady-state operations, the board of KML (Karara Mining Ltd) believes this is an appropriate time this transition to occur," Netscher said.
