Resolute Mining has announced its Ravenswood Gold Mine was not impacted from the extreme weather that hit far north Queensland. 

During the monsoon, the mine operated on a partial shutdown basis, with the extensive regional flooding causing road closures to the mine and prevented staff changeovers.

Resolute Mining Managing Director and CEO John Welborn said the work by the Resolute team at Ravenswood was commendable.

“The safety and wellbeing of employees, contractors, and their families is Resolute’s first operational priority,” he said.

“I greatly appreciate the considerable efforts of staff during this period and particularly the on-site team who worked extra hours and did a remarkable job in managing this ‘once-in-a-century’ monsoon rain event.” 

Mr Welborn said the company had also donated to the Australian Red Cross Disaster Relief and Recovery Fund to assist in the maintenance required in the region.

Operations are now back to normal and the company reported no damage had been inflicted on site infrastructure.
