Print this page

Australia: Kirkland Lake Gold plans to build a US$28m cement plant at its Fosterville Gold Mine in Victoria. The unit will be used to manufacture products to fill underground voids left over by the mining process, according to the Bendigo Advertiser newspaper. This in turn will allow ore yields to increase by mining adjacent to the former voids. The new cement plant is expected to be operational in the second half of 2019. The decision to build a cement plant at the mine follows an announcement that gold yields at the site are expected to double in 2019.
