Remnant Mining Project

Remnant Mining Project

The Remnant Mining Project was carried out between March 2020 and January 2021.

Open pits were completed at Lady Brenda East and Lady Brenda West whilst two cutbacks were mined in the south and east of the historical Flying Horse pit.

  • Lady Brenda East pit had available stocks of broken and unbroken ore where a large percentage of the pre-strip was removed by CST Minerals Lady Annie.
  • Lady Brenda West pit where less material was mined had a greater proportion of unbroken stock than the east pit.
  • The Southern and Eastern cutbacks in the Flying Horse pit that were previously commenced by CST Minerals Lady Annie were mined to completion by Austral Resources Lady Annie.
