Agnew Gold Mine

Location
Leinster, Western Australia, Australia
Overview
Situated in the Eastern Goldfields region, the Agnew Gold Mine site is 23 kilometres west of Leinster, 375 kilometres north of Kalgoorlie and nearly 1,000 kilometres north-east of Perth in Western Australia, Australia. Acquired in 2001, Agnew Gold Mine produces over 250,000 ounces of gold per annum.

Gold is sourced from the two underground operations and processed via a CIP plant. The majority of the nearly 500-strong Agnew workforce lives permanently in Perth and commutes to site on a fly-in/fly-out roster from Leinster.

Mining operations at Agnew currently consist of the Waroonga Underground comprising of the Kim, Main and FBH lodes. The underground workings are accessible from the old Waroonga Pit, via the Kim decline which extends to more than 1,300 meters below the surface. Stopes are mined by mechanised sub-level stoping and backfilled using paste fill, with underground production and development carried out by contract miner Barminco Limited.

Access to the Lawlers underground is via the New Holland and Genesis Pits and mining is predominantly via long-hole stoping of the Sheeba, Genesis and Cinderella lodes.
