SECOND MINES ROAD CLOSURE

Advance notification of 2nd Mines Road closure – Mining Lease M63/15

Pantoro South Pty Ltd (Pantoro South), the manager of the Norseman Gold Project (NGP), wish to advise residents and the community, that work will re-commence on the Mines Road Tunnel for Heavy Haulage.

Mines Road, East of the Staples St intersection, will be closed for the installation of the steel tunnel and concrete foundations to complete the works.  This second closure is anticipated to commence from the 24th of February, 2022 and will take approximately 6-8 weeks to complete.

NGP will install a single lane tunnel for mine traffic to travel beneath Mines Rd.  This physical separation of mine traffic from the public, accessing the Beacon Hill Lookout, is seen as the safest option to ensure there are no interactions.

During the construction of the tunnel, there will be no access to the Lookout.  Other minor works, such as fencing may also be conducted, with closure periods as short as possible.

NGP ask the community to be aware of the change in conditions and signposted speed limits.

Any enquiries can be directed to the Pantoro South community email address, norseman.enquiries@pantoro.com.au.
