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.

Golden Grove includes two underground mines and one open-pit mine.

The two underground mines produce zinc concentrate, copper concentrate and a high precious metals (HPM) concentrate using sub-level stoping.

Golden Grove commenced open pit operations above Gossan Hill in January 2012. Over its life, the copper open pit is forecast to produce approximately 235,000 tonnes of copper concentrate.

The ore is processed using a crushing, grinding and flotation process. Concentrates are then transported by truck to the Port of Geraldton before being exported to smelters in Asia and Europe.

Additional exploration of nearby tenements during 2013 was aimed at improving the long-term profitability and sustainability of Golden Grove.

2014 Production Guidance at Golden Grove is 26,000 - 29,000 tonnes of copper in concentrate and 45,000 - 50,000 tonnes of zinc in zinc concentrate.

For up-to-date production figures, refer to the latest MMG quarterly production report.
