Gold miner La Mancha Resources has announced massive expansion plans and will be launching a recruitment drive in order to double its WA Goldfields workforce.
The West Australian reports the company will create 80 new positions to bring the White Foil open pit near Kalgoorlie back into production by the December quarter.
The company will also hire another 40 workers for its new $110 million processing plant, which will be completed next year.
The new jobs will be added to the existing 160-strong workforce stationed at La Mancha's Frog's Leg underground mine, also near Kalgoorlie.
La Mancha joins a number of other Goldfields companies currently undertaking expansions, with Norton Gold Fields hiring 40 new workers in the last 12 months.
Last month KalNorth Gold Mines also opened its new Lindsay gold mine near Kalgoorlie.
La Mancha is owned by Cairo-based billionaire Naguib Sawiris.
