Barminco wins extension at Regis Resources’ Rosemont, Garden Well operations

Barminco says it is further extending its relationship with Regis Resources Ltd, securing a A$70 million ($45 million), six-month extension at the gold miner’s Rosemont and Garden Well operations in Western Australia.

With both gold mines in close proximity, it allows Barminco to continue to be agile with resourcing and equipment to provide comprehensive underground mining services to our client, it says.

Regis recently opened the Balkau Decline at its Garden Well South underground mine, which is an underground extension of the Garden Well open-pit mine: a key production source at Regis’ Duketon gold project, located in the Goldfields region.

Rosemont, meanwhile, includes the Rosemont open pit and underground mine, as well as Baneygo open pit. The Rosemont and associated surface deposits are mined using conventional open-pit mining truck and shovel methods. The Rosemont underground produces approximately 600,000 t/y and is mined using mechanised open stoping.
