Earthworks at the entrance of the box cut mine near Majors Creek.

Unity Mining says its box cut mine near Majors Creek is now deep enough to hold excess water from sediment ponds, to avoid spills of dirty water into nearby creeks.

04/07 - (Video) First blasting conducted at the Dargues Gold Mine

The blast was designed to occur in only 2 firings to both maximise efficiencies and minimise any impact on the local community.  Both the first stage “pre-split” and the second stage ‘body” (or main) blasts went according to plan with data feedback from our vibration monitoring being well within allowable limits.
