Norton to lay off 50 workers as Homestead gold mine closes

Chinese-controlled Norton Gold Fields Ltd. will let go 50 workers from its Homestead gold mine in Western Australia as the underground operation nears the end of its life.

ABC News reported Oct. 4 that the Zijin Mining Group Co. Ltd. subsidiary confirmed that it was seeking voluntary redundancies from the 80 workers at the operation, which includes about 30 workers at the nearby Bullant mine.

Homestead, which has been in operation since 2009, is due to close before the end of the year, and Norton’s plans to redeploy the workforce to the Tuart underground mine have been delayed, according to the publication.

The Homestead and Bullant mines supply Norton’s Paddington mill with high-grade feed, while the baseload feed comes from the Enterprise, Mount Pleasant and Racetrack West open pits.

Norton is looking to bring the Mount Jewell open pit into production in 2017 and is in talks with Evolution Mining Ltd. to develop the Castle Hill project, ABC reported.
