Golden Grove back online

Normal operations have resumed at the Golden Grove copper and zinc mine in Western Australia.

Normal operations have resumed at the Golden Grove copper and zinc mine in Western Australia, the mine’s new owner Minerals and Metals Group (MMG) announced in a statement.

A semi-autogenous grinding (SAG) mill at the mine is back online after being shut down in early June due to a mechanical failure.

“The ramp up back to full capacity of the SAG mill is now well under way,” MMG said in the statement.

The company said that ore was stockpiled during the mill’s outage, and a limited amount was able to be fed through a tertiary system to create feed for the ball mill and maintain some concentrate production.

The Golden Grove mine is now owned by MMG, the new Australian arm of China’s Minmetals, after its inclusion in the asset sale with OZ Minerals earlier this year.
