Full steam ahead for Pajingo’s new decline

Full steam ahead for Pajingo’s new decline

The box cut is complete for the new Lynne decline at the Minjar Gold’s Pajingo mine, 50km south of Charters Towers.

The project to access the Lynne ore body takes the site down the path towards its ‘Pajingo 2.0’ transition plan.

General manager – Pajingo operations Kerry Payne shared an update and video footage of work on the decline via LinkedIn this week. (See footage HERE )

“Targeting multiple lodes down dip and along strike of the traditional underground workings, it will run independently and simultaneously with the existing underground activities,” he said.

“The first three-year phase will see development ore from the new underground in the later part of 2020 and production in 2021/22.

“Exploration activity in the vicinity of the Lynne development is targeting Phase Two of the transition plan and is currently yielding some of the best results seen in many years.”

Mr Payne said the new infrastructure would put the operation in the perfect position to quickly capitalise on these new discoveries, making the Lynne decline strategically significant for the site’s long-term future.
