The agenda will include site visits to:
The Ok Tedi mine - this is a state owned open-pit project that produces copper, gold and silver in the Star Mountains of the Western Province in PNG. In 2016, 65 million tonnes of ore and waste were mined and moved via haul trucks to their primary crusher and two SAG mills located on site. With current reserve estimates mining will continue at Ok Tedi until at least 2025, whilst there is also a considerable exploration and drilling program underway. Ongoing government investment in the project and a focus on improving productivity provides an excellent opportunity for Australian METS to supply Ok Tedi.
Hidden Valley, Harmony Gold - this mine is an open pit gold and silver mine, situated in the Morobe Province in Papua New Guinea, some 210km northwest of Port Moresby. The major gold and silver deposits of the Morobe goldfield and Hidden Valley are hosted in the Wau Graben. Ore mined is treated at the Hidden Valley processing plant.
Kainantu, K92 Mining - The Kainantu property is located in the Eastern Highlands Province of Papua New Guinea, approximately 180 km west-northwest of Lae. The Property includes all mine infrastructure, exploration camps, exploration data and diamond drill core. The property is well supported by regional infrastructure, and contains nearly all the necessary site infrastructure to recommence mining operations.
