Response to ABC media article 12 July 2023
The Mt Rawdon gold mine has been an important contributor to the communities and economy of
the North Burnett and Bundaberg region (and Queensland more broadly) for more than 25 years.
It spends $7 million – $10 million per annum in the region and about 85% of the 200 strong
workforce currently resides in the Wide Bay Burnett region.
Our proposal to transition Mt Rawdon occurs at the end of its economic life as a gold mine with
mining planned to end in FY25, and ore processing to end in FY26.
