Burnakura Gold Mine
|Company||Monument Mining Limited|
First mined in the 1990s, Burnakura was later owned by Extract Resources Limited, which brought in Tectonic Resources NL as an operating partner. In 2005, underground production commenced by creating a portal and decline access to ore and milling began late 2005. In April 2007, milling ceased again and in October 2007, ATW purchased the mine for C$8.4 million.
Burnakura commenced production on 3 March 2009 and achieved commercial production in June that year., however due to a series of erratic vein sets with structural offsets, the mine is to be put back on care and maintenance
