Darwin Mining Club Luncheon

Kirkland Lake Gold – NT Operations: An exciting future for gold production in the Pine Creek region

The DMC Committee invites you and your colleagues to attend the Darwin Mining Club Luncheon on Friday 9 August, 2019 with keynote speaker: Mark Edwards, Project Director - NT Mining Operations, Kirkland Lake Gold



Kirkland Lake Gold made the decision in mid-2017 to suspend production at the NT Operations to focus on exploration activities to build a sustainable life-of-mine plan. This work has continued with up to 4 diamond rigs drilling underground and up to 4 surface rigs drilling at Cosmo, Union Reefs and Pine Creek – all of which have seen close to 1M oz of historic production.

Kirkland Lake Gold has also been active with mining development at the Cosmo mine to establish suitable drilling platforms as well as to access the mineralisation which has increased our understanding of the Lantern deposit. Drilling at Union Reefs has also been successful in identifying the size potential of the mineralisation in very close proximity to the processing plant. The team is now working diligently on the plan that shows a significant operations where a profile of more than 100,000 ounces pa is possible over the longer term from multiple mining centres feeding a central mill. We are excited about the opportunity to work in the Pine Creek region which has produced well over 4Moz in modern times, but has been starved of detailed and sustained exploration for a long time.
