The webinar will feature an update on Newcrest’s new $800 million project in Canada, the Red Chris mine, and explore the current operational priorities and future developments for the project.
Austmine’s alliance partner, the British Columbia Mining Suppliers Association, will also provide an overview of how the mining industry is tackling major challenges during this period of significant disruption.
British Columbia has over 150 years of mining history and is Canada’s largest producer of copper and steel-making coal, the second largest producer of silver and the only producer of molybdenum. The province is home to the world’s largest concentration of exploration companies and mining professionals, with the global headquarters of more than 700 mining and minerals firms in Vancouver.
Red Chris Mine – Newcrest
In August 2019, Newcrest acquired 70% of the Red Chris operation in a joint venture with Imperial Metals. Red Chris is a copper-gold porphyry mine with an operating open-pit and mineral resources of 20 million ounces of gold and 13 billion pounds of copper. Newcrest is looking at the possibility of developing an underground block cave operation under the existing pit. Find more information here.
