Growth opportunities

In November 2022, the Panel Cave (PC) 1-2 feasibility study was approved to execution.

PC1-2 is the next panel cave for execution at Cadia after PC2-3 and its development is expected to recover approximately 20 per cent of Cadia’s published Ore Reserves.

Sustainability and community

Newcrest places a high value on the support and endorsement of its activities by surrounding communities. Newcrest is a major employer and economic contributor to the local economy.

Cadia works closely with local community groups and government agencies to provide ongoing infrastructure and support in the Orange, Blayney and Cabonne local government areas.

Newcrest undertakes a range of environmental reporting and monitoring activities to ensure that Cadia maintains a safe environment for employees, operating and developing mines in line with good environmental practices and commitment to local communities.

Parliamentary Inquiry response 

The Parliamentary Inquiry submission provides information on a range of current and planned measures designed to ensure Cadia remains in compliance with regulatory requirements and meets the environmental, health and safety expectations of both the local and broader communities.
