With their Hidden Valley mine unable to return a profit do Harmony and Newcrest really have the stomach for another JV?

THE Wafi-Golpu Joint Ventures, since the announcement of the findings of its feasibility study, is focusing on preparing an environment impact statement and a special mining lease application.
General manager Sustainability and External Relations David Wissink said the impact statement and the mining lease application would be submitted to the Government after the approval of the Newcrest and Harmony boards before the start of the next phase of development.
“The proposed mine development is underground, targeting the rich Golpu copper-gold porphyry ore body. Feasibility study investigated the establishment of two block caves – block cave one BC1 and a deeper block cave two BC2  –  along with associated infrastructure, processing plant, roads, electricity, water management and port facilities,” Wissink said
