Newcrest resumes mining operations at Cadia gold-copper mine

Newcrest Mining Ltd. said March 27 that it is resuming mining operations at the Cadia gold-copper mine in New South Wales, Australia, effective immediately.

The company previously declared force majeure on copper concentrate shipments at the Cadia East mine after it halted operations March 9 due to a tailings dam breach discovered after seismic activity.

The Australian gold miner will begin mining at the Panel Cave 1, then progressively resume mining from Panel Cave 2. The mined ore will be stockpiled until processing is allowed to resume.

Newcrest is undertaking work on multiple recovery scenarios, including the use of the old Cadia Hill open pit as an alternative tailings location. It is working with officials from the New South Wales government to secure the necessary permits and began procurement of the equipment for the alternative tailings dam.

Meanwhile, Newcrest said it remains "too early" to update its guidance, but CEO Sandeep Biswas previously said it was set to miss its fiscal 2018 guidance due to the mine's temporary closure.
