Mt Carlton is located 150km south of Townsville, Queensland, on the traditional lands of the Birriah People. Our local communities are Gumlu, Home Hill, Bowen and Townsville. The operation was developed by Evolution and commissioned in 2013.
Mt Carlton produced a total of 58,371 ounces at an AISC of A$1,937 per ounce. The result was ahead of plan. Mine operating cash flow was A$25.7 million and net mine cash flow was A$19.6 million which was a strong turnaround from the prior period due to improved operational performance.
Underground mining during the year was concentrated on gaining access to ore in the Western Feeder Zone while V2 open pit ore was extracted from the Stage 4C following the work in the prior period on the Stage 4C cutback. Adjacent to the V2 open pit, underground development of the decline into the high-grade silver A39 deposit continued during the year with production from A39 schedule to commence in the December 2021 quarter.
