Red Dog rolls over for Matsa

MATSA Resources will start mining at its Red Dog gold mine in Western Australia’s northern Goldfields early in this year’s third quarter, after it was granted approval for its mining proposal, mine closure plan and project management plan by the Department of Mines Industry, Regulation and Safety.

The Red Dog gold project has a maiden gold resource of 26,300 ounces

Red Dog is Matsa's latest mine.

The deposit has been comprehensively examined by a host of explorers from 1985 to the present, including CSR, Pennzoil-Vam, Shell, Sons of Gwalia and Saracen.

Located close to Matsa's existing operations at Lake Carey and Red October, Red Dog will cut costs by using the existing infrastructure and accommodation at Red October.

All regulatory approvals have been issued for the Red Dog mine and the tendering for mining and haulage works has also been done, with negotiations on an ore purchase and processing agreement in progress.

On-site at Red Dog, final mining and feasibility studies will wind-up shortly.
