Unaffected by COVID-19
Ausmex recently confirmed its business activities have been largely unaffected by the coronavirus pandemic with projects including the Mt Freda Gold Complex near Cloncurry, Queensland, progressing.
The company is mindful of its obligations to ensure the health and well-being of its staff and communities where it operates, with staff and consultants primarily working remotely.
To date, all parties are cooperating well electronically to address the issues that need to be progressed and interactions with joint venture partners and potential partners continue unabated.
Ausmex director and chief operating officer Geoff Kidd said: “While these are pressing and unprecedented times, most of us at Ausmex have previously worked on major mine developments initially from within mine owner’s head offices, which has effectively been working remotely from the mine site in the early stages of all developments.”
