ABM Resources NL (ABM) proposes to develop an open pit gold mine at Twin Bonanza
in the Tanami Desert. The Twin Bonanza 1 Project is located approximately 750km NW
of Alice Springs (by road) and approximately 16km east of the Northern Territory and
Western Australian border. The site is located approximately 33km south of the Tanami
Road. The proposed mine would be located on a new Mineral Lease (MLA 29822)
encompassing 3257 ha within ABM’s existing Exploration Licences. The expected life of
the mine is 3-4 years.
The project encompasses open pit mining and onsite processing including associated
tails dams, waste dumps and required infrastructure including a power station,
accommodation, workshops and offices.
The total operational workforce (FIFO) for mining is estimated to be approximately 68
personnel, accommodated on site. The workforce would commute to site predominantly
via charter flights.
