Report: Barrick, Newmont JV to further slash headcount at Kalgoorlie Super Pit

Barrick Gold Corp. and Newmont Mining Corp.'s Kalgoorlie Super Pit gold mine in Western Australia will cut 45 jobs and reposition another 140 roles as it looks to reduce costs after rock falls in May, The West Australian wrote Oct. 18.

Barrick's attributable gold production from Kalgoorlie dropped 22% to 75,000 ounces in the third quarter, as the rockfall incident continues to impact production at the site.

Kalgoorlie Consolidated Gold Mines Pty. Ltd., the mine operator, said in a letter obtained by WestBusiness that it would notify all employees on Oct. 17 regarding the changes, which involve a revised organizational structure and reduction in overall staffing.

The company revealed in the letter that the two rock fall incidents in May that led to 36 redundancies at the site significantly impacted business plans, and it was assessing further efficiencies and cost-cutting measures.

Kalgoorlie Consolidated's general manager, Cecile Thaxter, understood to have met with around 100 senior staff, while individual redundancy interviews were held.

"KCGM anticipates the changes will result in approximately 45 redundancies, impacting employees in the following categories; management, supervisory, senior professional, professional, semi-professional, administration and support," according to the letter, which added that the move will not impact operators or maintainers at the site.

However, an operator told the newswire that he had been notified of the redundancy.

Kalgoorlie Consolidated further said that it was reviewing the short and long-term impact of the rock falls, and will keep employees informed of the changes.
