The Osborne Extended Mine Life Project (EML Project) will mine six million tonnes from three brownfield mines at Starra, extending the Osborne site life by several years.  Commencing late 2021, mining will initially focus on the open pits at Starra 254 and 222, with ore hauled approximately 50km by road trains back to Osborne for processing.   Ore processing at Osborne is planned to recommence in early 2022 and underground mining at Starra 222 will recommence in early 2023. Chinova has other open pit and potential underground projects expected to commence within the EML Project timeframe.
