Early Works program for the Carrapateena sub level cave mine, which includes establishment of the sites surface infrastructure, excavation of the boxcut and portal and development of 7.5km of decline and drives to access the orebody, 400m below the surface.Mine Development Past Projects
The contract involves the supply of our new RBR600-VF Raise bore rig and a drill crew of three senior drillers with our Raise Bore Superintendent.
Our Raise Bore Division had an exciting start to 2016 with winning of the OceanaGold Ventilation Shaft contract. This project marks PYBAR’s first project outside Australia – an exciting step forward for our business.
Building further on a positive relationship with Mandalay Resources, this is the 3rd contract held between PYBAR and Mandalay Resources at the Costerfield Operations. PYBAR provided narrow vein development drilling with the Muki Micro Combo Drill. An initial trial period of 3 months, predominantly drilling 1.8m x 3m drives and also trialling of the bolting and long hole drilling capabilities of the Muki Micro Combo Drill.Mine Development Past Projects
Project involved the re-commissioning of the Challenger Gold Mine. Challenger targeted to produce approximately 48,000 oz of gold from 340,000 tonnes of ore per annum over an estimated period of 32 months. It comprised 10,000 metres of decline, levels and ore drives development. Diamond drilling was initially carried out to confirm the potential of the mine.Mine Development | Mine Production | Production Drilling Past Projects
The initial nine month contract comprises 4km of development and the commencement of stoping activities leading to a production rate of 35,000 tonnes. The contract involves the supply of all labour and equipment as well as material supply averaging off our nearby contract at Red October.Cable Bolting | Mine Development | Mine Production | Production Drilling | Raise Boring Past Projects
Supply labour, plant and material to re-start underground operations including underground development, and production; The mine will access the orebody via the existing decline using typical jumbo development and recover ore using a combination of sub level caving for base metals and longhole open stoping methods for the gold orebody; and Mining of the level access (5.5mW x 5.8mH) and ore drives (4.5mW x 4.5mH) using twin boom jumbos.Construction | Mine Development | Mine Production | Production Drilling Past Projects
Supply labour, plant and material to commence underground operations including portal establishment and development, underground development, and production;
Establishment of offices, HV workshop, ablutions, batch plant, electrical infrastructure and sewerage water treatment plant;
Decline development using typical jumbo development and recover ore using traditional longhole open stoping methods; and
Mining of the decline (5.0mW x 5.5mH), levels (5.0mW x 5.5mH) and ore drives (4.0mW x 4.5mH) using twin boom jumbos.
The project is being developed in stages. Stage one aims to produce approximately 30,000 oz of gold a year at a mining rate of 150,000 tonnes per year for an estimated period of three years. Stage two is expected to increase the project's production life by an additional three years.Mine Development Past Projects
