West Australian-based gold development and exploration company Kin Mining NL has provided the following update on activities in the wake of the recent decision to suspend construction at the Leonora Gold Project (LGP).
According to Kin Mining, the shutdown of construction at the Cardinia process plant site has been completed and the operation has officially been placed on care and maintenance. All construction facilities have been made safe, secure, hygienic and operationally ready for when construction is recommenced.
All assets have been itemised and registered and equipment has been stored. Equipment which began manufacture or refurbishment (Potable Water Tank and Ball Mill Pinnion Gear) are being completed and will be delivered to site and stored over the next month.
Site based development work such as water bore drilling, test pumping and other site testwork programmes are to continue in the short-term with crews operating out of the Cardinia site facilities Kin’s geology and exploration teams will operate out of the Cardinia site as the company’s exploration programme across all project areas continues.
