Cadia is one of Australia’s largest gold mining operations. In the 2023 fiscal year, Cadia produced 597 Koz of gold at an all-in sustaining cost of $45 per ounce. In November 2022, the Panel Cave (PC) 1-2 feasibility study was approved to execution. PC1-2 is the next panel cave for execution at Cadia after PC2-3, and its development is expected to recover approximately 20 percent of Cadia’s published ore reserves. The Cadia East mine is operating; the Ridgeway mine is not operational and remains subject to maintenance requirements.
