Here are some of the precautions being taken to ensure our site is COVIDSafe:
  • We have implemented maximum numbers across our site in order to prevent crowding:
    • Max. 20 people in the retail area;
    • Max. 50 people on the surface of the mine;
    • Max. 20 people underground at any one time.
  • All our staff have undergone training to ensure that they understand and can follow all the COVIDSafe requirements.
  • We have increased our staffing to ensure that staff are only assigned to specific roles and have more supervision.
  • Tour sizes have been reduced from 20 to only 6 people per guide. This ensures social distancing can be maintained and avoids crowding in the lift.
  • The use of cap lamps has been suspended in order to avoid contact. Instead we will be using lighting underground.
