Aurelia Metals Ltd had acquired the Peak Gold Mines, located in Cobar, a remote township in Western New South Wales. Peak has operated since 1992 as a medium sized underground gold mining operation, with a robust history of replacing and growing its mineral resources.
The mine was planning to utilize the existing service bridge to convey additional pipe services required between two areas. The formulated concept was a bolted arrangement and this was noted in MPM’s model.
