Portal excavation, decline development and LHOS Production

It was back to Kalgoorlie and Byrnecut’s origins with the successful awarding of the Paddington Gold Underground Mining Contract in September 2020.

Byrnecut secured a three-year underground mining contract with Norton Goldfields for their new Enterprise and Tuart underground mines within the Paddington gold camp.

The work was secured through an open tender process under a schedule-of-rates style contract. Works comprise portal excavation, mine development and longhole stoping with paste-fill and cemented rockfill techniques.

Enterprise at Ora Banda was the first mine to start, with two portals excavated for decline and ventilation access.

The Tuart mine, 20km south at Mt Pleasant, commenced two months later. The operation will be managed by a single management team, with each site having its own workshop and site facilities.

The mines are accessed by mainly sealed roads from the major mining town of Kalgoorlie, with the workforce a mixture of local and fly-in, fly-out personnel. The mining crews reside in the town and travel to site each day. The operation works 365 days per year, 24 hours per day, and Byrnecut will eventually employ 142 people on the project.
