Broken Hill mine’s workforce cut by a third
Despite the sackings representing a third of the workforce, CBH Resources told the Barrier Daily Truth that there were no plans to close the zinc, lead and silver mine.
After operations at the mine were suspended in 2008, the mine was subsequently bought by CBH Resources and re-opened in 2012.
The Barrier Daily Truth reported today that, “… employees arriving for work from yesterday morning were told it was now downsizing in response to heavy losses.”
In a statement CBH said Rasp had not performed to expectations in “several key respects” amid a “very difficult” external market environment for zinc producers.
