Beatrix is primarily an underground mine utilising three access surface shafts. Workings vary in depth between 600m and 2,155m beneath surface. Underground ore along with low-grade surface stockpiles is treated in 2 processing plants (combined throughput 4.5Mt/a). A consultation process has begun in relation to Section 189A on the proposed restructuring of gold operations and ongoing losses experienced at Beatrix 1 shaft. Results of the consultation may lead to downsizing of operations or possible closure.
