Lindsay''s Gold Mine | NuFortune Zero Cyanide Mining

Lindsay''s Gold Mine has been in operation during various times throughout the nineteenth century, with production totalling some 4kt at an estimated grade of 19g/t gold. Production from the Lindsay''s Find area during the 1930s is reported as 950t at 3.0g/t gold. In 1987, a further 15t was mined at a grade of 15.4g/t.
