Stawell Gold back into ProductionMay 8, 2019
Stawell Gold Mine has reached one of its proudest moments in recent times, pouring its first gold bar since closing in December 2016.
A “milestone” gold pour took place on Thursday, establishing the completion of the long and arduous process to get the mine back to full production once again.
“It was our first gold pour event following commissioning phase of the mill and of mining processes,” Stawell Gold Mine general manager Troy Cole said.
“The pour is demonstrative that all systems are up and going and we are ready to go into mainstream production again.”
“The internal intent was to achieve this within the January period so we are very pleased to have done so,” Mr Cole said.
“We had an in-house function to take the opportunity to acknowledge the work of our employees, investors and all those that played a part in getting us to where we are now,” he said.
The mine now has nearly 150 employees, growing from a small group only 12 months ago.
”We also had between 40 and 60 contractors involved over the course of the last four months,” Mr Cole said.
As one of the longest standing partnerships throughout Western Victoria, West Cranes & Access Hire are excited to continue their ongoing relationship in providing a large selection of hire equipment such as; Mobile Crane Hire, Scissor Lift, Elevated Work Platforms, Access Booms and a variety of other specialised services.
