Tanami, Northern Territory

Newmont’s Tanami Operations is located on Aboriginal freehold land in the remote Tanami Desert of the Northern Territory. Mining for gold began in the early 1900s and, most recently, from the late-1980s to present day. Production in 2010 was from the Callie underground operation, at Dead Bullock Soak, with ore processed at the Granites Mill, more than 40km to the east. At the end of 2010, Callie had 2 million ounces of gold reserves. In July 2011, a decision was announced to invest $450 million on a deep shaft project that has the potential to extend the mine life.
