Mining recommences at Newcrest mine after geotechnical event
Almost a month after a geotechnical event trapped a miner underground, Newcrest has announced mining has recommenced at the Gosowong mine.
The Toguraci mine, part of the Gosowong operation, is now in operation. However, mining at Kencana remains suspended.
“During the period of suspension, technical studies and rehabilitation work have been undertaken at both Toguraci and Kencana and some low grade stockpiled material has been processed,” Newcrest said.
“The rate of mining at Toguraci will slowly increase over time, with full production from Toguraci not expected for at least two months.
“Technical studies in relation to Kencana are well advanced but yet to be completed. Production and cost guidance for Gosowong for the 2016 financial year will be updated after recovery and resumption plans have been completed.”
