Perilya to resume mining at Broken Hill
October 1, 2009 - 1:19PM
Production is expected to resume at Perilya Ltd's Broken Hill lead and zinc mine in New South Wales after a city-wide power outage caused by dust storms on September 21 led to mining being suspended.
Power was restored to the Broken Hill grid on Tuesday night, Perilya said in a statement on Thursday.
"The company expects to return to full mining production today," the miner said.
"As previously advised, Perilya does not anticipate any impact on production for the December quarter, with the company fully expecting to achieve market guidance for metal production for both the December quarter and the full financial year."
