Our Waihi Gold Mine in the North Island of New Zealand is an underground and open pit operation. In early 2019 OceanaGold received consent to develop the Martha Underground. This project has two parts, a layback of the Martha open pit north wall, removal of the material left as a result of a slip in 2015 and construction of a new haul road; and an underground mine mainly below the Martha open pit which will be accessed from our existing underground infrastructure. This project extends the Waihi life of mine by at least ten years and gives our 350 staff and contractors, and the people of Waihi an assurance that we plan to be here for the long term.
