Definition & Development of Power Hub – Kalgoorlie

Resources WA are engaged by Norton Mining, Northern Star and Evolution Mining to address production loss through unreliable power supply around the Black Flag substation. The result of our investigation was the sponsored creation of a power generation hub in collaboration with Norton and Northern Star. This multi-generation facility will eventually see upward of 150MW with enough storage back up for 60MW to support the current and future milling programs in the region.

The project represents a focus for alternative generation requiring power reliability and a now required decarbonisation strategy for mineral processing in the region.

Additional Scope:

  • Gold production power diagnostic
  • Power creation review
  • Stakeholder analysis and management
  • Commercial Modelling
  • Decarbonised power strategy
