I have references to further info about the Cadia mine for those interested
in its past and future. It certainly seems now to have potential for rail
transport of a gold/copper concentrate which is intended for smelting
overseas. The concentrate will be produced in rather large quantities, and
I don't think the Blue Mountain communities would be too happy about
additional heavy trucks along the Great Western Highway.
For a very interesting read on the history of earlier mining at Cadia, the
Cornish Association have researched it very well - refer to
The mine owners (Newcrest) have a site which gives an insight into the
massive scale of the project and the expected returns - refer to
http://www.newcrest.com.au/Nmldevel.htm You can also get contacts for the
firm at this site.
Hope the above is of use
