Ora Banda Mining Ltd has selected Byrnecut as the underground mining contractor to proceed with operations for the Riverina Underground Mine Services, as part of the Davyhurst Gold Project. Commencing in May 2023, this three-year contract encompasses a full suite underground development and production operations.
Riverina Underground is located approximately 45km west of Menzies and 120 km northwest of Kalgoorlie in Western Australia. With operations continuous, at 24 hours a day throughout the year, working under a fly-in fly-out roster.
The airstrip and nearby camp which accommodates personnel have both undergone recent upgrades and improvements – effectively supporting the project as it continues to grow.
Reports affirm that Riverina possesses an underground resource in excess of 300,000oz at 4.1g/t with an associated reserve of approximately 73,000oz. Three dominant lodes may potentially be targeted over the course of operations at Riverina. The confidence interval on this looks to increase as Ora Banda Mining Ltd. expands their drilling campaign.
Byrnecut was able to facilitate an accelerated mobilisation programme cutting the portal within six weeks of award. With development progressing steadily, production is anticipated in late 2023. Byrnecut looks forward to working with Ora Banda Mining Ltd. under this contract.
