T1: Ernest Henry & Dugald River
Thursday 19 – Friday 20 October 2017
The first day of this two day tour will be spent at Dugald River a development project in north-west Queensland. Operated by MMG, Dugald River is positioned to be within the world's top ten zinc mines when operational. The optimised mine plan will support a 1.7 Mtpa operation with annual production of around 170,000 tonnes of zinc in zinc concentrate, plus by products. The mine will operate over an estimated 25 years while the ore body remains open at depth.
On day two delegates will visit Ernest Henry Mine a copper and gold mining and processing operation located 38 kilometres north east of Cloncurry in north west Queensland. The mine began commercial production in March 1998 as an open pit mining operation and transitioned the mine to underground in December 2011.
