Our team is focused on continuing to optimise resource recovery and extending the mine’s reserves to deliver long-term value for Wahana," said Thiess executive general manager Asia, Cluny Randell.

“Alongside this, we’re looking forward to building on our Covid-19 vaccination efforts, extending our employee and family vaccination program into the community next month.”
