Century mine is Australia’s largest open-cut zinc mine and 2015 will be it last year of production. Located at Lawn Hill, 250km north-west of Mount Isa in the Lower Gulf of Carpentaria, the mine opened in 1999. During the last 16 years of operation, Century has produced and processed zinc and lead concentrates at Lawn Hill. Transferred in slurry form through a 304km underground pipeline to Century’s Port facility at Karumba, the metal was shipped to smelters in Australia, Europe and Asia with the final ore extracted from the Century mine in August 2015. MMG continues to look at options that could potentially utilise Century’s extensive infrastructure at Lawn Hill and Karumba. These studies include investigations into alternative feed sources for the Century processing plant and further near-mine exploration as well as the potential retreatment of material from the tailings dam. The infrastructure at Lawn Hill and Karumba, including the pipeline, are expected to be maintained in a state of operational readiness to allow for future utilisation if required. The mine is serviced by an all-weather airstrip.
