Waihi mine expansions and more proposed with Project Quattro

OceanaGold Senior Communications Advisor Kit Wilson called into the Gold FM studio this morning just after news broke that the mining company has announced a new proposal to extend the life of mining in and around Waihi.

The Project Quattro proposal involves four major activities - an expansion of the Martha open pit, a new open pit to the south of Waihi, a rock stack and a third tailings storage area.

It’s a complex proposal with local road alignments, relocation of Waihi features like the Cornish PumpHouse and other buildings, the removal of others and more - so Kit took time out to talk to Brian about what it involves.

Kit recommended people interested to find out more visit www.waihigold.co.nz to view the documents.

A drop-in information centre will be opened in Seddon Street soon for people to call in and talk to staff about the proposal if they have questions.
