Golden Grove

Golden Grove is an underground and open pit base and precious metals mine located in Western Australia.

It is located approximately 450 kilometres north-east of Perth and 250 kilometres east of Geraldton.

The two underground mines produce zinc in zinc concentrate, copper in copper concentrate and a high precious metals (HPM) concentrate using sub-level stoping. The open-pit above Gossan Hill produces copper oxide concentrate.

2014 zinc production of 37,896 tonnes was 60% higher than in 2013 due to a higher throughput and increased zinc feed grades. 2014 copper of 630,387 was 9% lower than in 2013 due to a focus on zinc production.

MMG expects to produce 40,000 – 55,000 tonnes of zinc and 21,000 – 24,000 tonnes of copper at Golden Grove during 2015.
