Mine Development, Whole of Mine
PYBAR has successfully carried out and completed the rehabilitation, development and stage one production of the Mineral Hill site. The project commenced in January 2011 and has resulted in a two year extended contract, to May 2014, with KBL Mining Ltd for the ongoing development and production of the Parkers Hill ore body and progressive rehabilitation of the decline to access other resources.
“We have successfully extended our contract with KBL Mining Ltd due to our safety record on site, highly efficient and flexible employees and the results achieved from the rehabilitation, development and production from Parkers Hill. We have also been able to increase production by 60% and thus allow for the step change in mill capacity that our client required” says PYBAR’s operations manager Agi Patrikios.
The extension of this contract means more jobs for Condobolin and the Western NSW region, with PYBAR employing 38 employees for the entire duration of the project. With continuing development and ongoing production into the Parkers Hill site, PYBAR will also be providing additional equipment to the site to assist with shotcreting and stope filling.
PYBAR looks forward to continuing to work alongside KBL Mining Ltd into the future to further develop the underground resources and potential open pit mining of the Pearse Open Cut.
