Gold is mined exclusively at the Henty Gold Mine, south of Rosebery, and at the rejuvenated Beaconsfield Gold Mine. Though not mined in its own right, gold is also extracted from the Mt Lyell and Rosebery ores.
BEACONSFIELD MINE JOINT VENTURE - TASMANIA MINE
The Beaconsfield gold mine experienced difficulties in a number of areas, particularly with the performance of the bacterial oxidation section of the gold recovery circuit. At the end of 2000-01, the manager of the Beaconsfield Gold Mines Joint Venture, Allstate Explorations NL, had been placed in voluntary administration and the minority partner, Beaconsfield Gold Mines NL, was under the control of a receiver and manager. However, the mine continued to operate under the control of the administrator with the full work force.
