Posted May 02, 2019 05:15:51New gold from Australia’s new Goldfields gold mine, set to open by 2020, will bring a new era of prosperity to Calacatu, and a new kind of gold to the local economy.
Gold Fields, near Winton in northern New South Wales, will be the first in Australia to mine gold for a new market in Australia, a key part of the new global trend for gold.
Goldfields, located in the remote remote northern Goldfields region, is the third mine in the world to be opened in a new gold mine development.
“There’s been a lot of innovation, there’s been lots of changes,” said Goldfields Managing Director Ian Cawthorne.
“But there’s still some of that old, pre-Goldfields gold, that remains in the ground and that’s what we’re hoping to turn it into gold.”
What we’re doing with the mine is, as you can see on the gold mine map, the mines in this area are in the same position, we’re not quite the same height and the same distance from the main Goldfields mine site, but there are many of those similarities.
“We’re hoping the mine can bring a lot more investment into the area, a lot less reliance on mining, a better quality of life.”
New mines opening in Australia: Goldfields Goldfields: Launching by 2020New mines are being opened across Australia, including a proposed mine in Western Australia’s Goldfields National Park, as a part of a $5 billion upgrade of the gold and diamond industry in the Northern Territory.
“It’s important that this gold comes into our national economy and it is our intention to make sure it is produced in a way that is sustainable,” Mr Cawdrey said.
The mine will be part of an expanded mine and quarrying program that will involve up to 20 new mines across Australia.
“With that investment in mining, we’ll see that gold comes to the area more easily, and also for more local people, and we’re really excited about the prospect of having more gold in the Goldfields,” he said.
Goldfield gold has a long history in the region.
It has been mined for thousands of years in remote areas, and was mined in New South Welsh mining villages before being brought to the main goldfields mine, about 80km west of Perth.
In the 19th century, the first gold was found in the area.
The first Goldfields mining operation, at about the same time, was set up at Winton, in what is now Winton and Winton Goldfields, which is about 1,200km east of the Goldfield mining area.
At the time, the gold was being exported to the United States, and some of it was also being exported by ship to London, where it was used to produce diamonds.
The Goldfields operation was eventually shut down in 1971, but its remnants are still found in nearby fields.
The new Goldfield mine will include two large mining pits, one at Wonsan, where the main mine will operate, and another at Wantsay, which will produce a new type of gold known as Calacat.
The Calacats will be mined in the goldfields area and exported to Europe, Asia and the United Kingdom, with most of the mined gold being exported for use in the jewellery industry.
The mines have also attracted attention for their environmental impacts.
A new study, published in the Australian Journal of Mining and Mineral Resources, found the Gold Fields mine had the highest concentration of toxic metals in the Great Barrier Reef, and that the mine could pollute the Great Australian Bight with up to a quarter of the world’s cyanobacteria.
“The gold has had the potential to become a major environmental issue for decades, with the mining process being the main cause of this,” the study found.
“For a long time, gold has been regarded as the most sustainable gold.
But the recent environmental concerns around mining have brought this to the fore.”
The report found the mine’s operations had the ability to release carbon dioxide into the Great Bay.
In addition to the GoldField mine, another mining site in the Western Australian Goldfields will also be open by the end of the year.
