Meekatharra Gold Operations

Project Overview

The CMGP is located in the Murchison Goldfields of Western Australia around the regional towns of Cue and Meekatharra. The CMGP project strategy has a number of current and proposed underground mines and open pits being developed over time. After a refurbishment, integration of assets and completion of an initial development strategy the project started in the second half of 2015 with the plant commissioned in October 2015.

Meekatharra Gold Operations (MGO)

The MGO is a subset of the CMGP which covers the northern areas and uses the 1.6 – 1.8M tpa Bluebird Plant as a processing hub.

The key base-load for the MGO 10 Year Development Plan is the existing Paddy’s Flat Underground Mine. This is supplemented by further underground mining at the Jack Ryan, South Emu-Triton, Boomerang and Bluebird mines.

The underground mining at MGO is supplemented by open pits from the Paddy’s Flat, Meekatharra North, Yaloginda, and Nannine groups of open pit mines on a progressive basis over the 10 year plan.
