The operation is comprised of an underground mine and an AG mill with a production capacity of approximately 2.8Mt/a of ore. The mine has been through a period of change as a 30-year old mine was “ rebuilt” with the focus moving away from the main orebody and into the SWEX area which is the future of the mine.
Production at Tara, in 2015, continued to be negatively affected by the changeover to greater mine depths and prior delays in development work has resulted in a reduced extraction rate. In the beginning of Q3 2015, unplanned maintenance shutdowns impacted upon ore production however the processing rate was recovering by the end of the year.
