Mine Open Day


Newcrest Mining’s Cadia Valley Operations is excited to invite you to our Open Day, fit for the whole family on Saturday 6 April, 2019. You can now book FREE tickets at www.cadiaopenday.com.au.

The open day provides an opportunity for the community to experience firsthand the surface mining operations of one of Australia’s largest underground gold mines.

Departing from Blayney Shire Community Centre every 10 minutes on Saturday 6 April, 2019 Cadia will be offering guided bus tours of the mine site.

Features of this year’s Open Day will include:

• Expansive machinery display showcasing the site's latest machinery
• Heavy vehicle workshop in action
• Cadia's progressive rehabilitation and site tailings storage facilities
• Panoramic views of the Cadia open pit

An interactive displace centre will also be setup at the Blayney Shire Community Centre where participants will be able to learn more about Cadia's operations. There is also an opportunity to experience a separate tour of the dewatering plant in Blayney.

Supporting our community
The Open Day is a free event but as in previous years, there has been a voluntary gold coin donation. You can now make this donation via our ticketing system. In 2019, Cadia would like to support this initiative by matching all monies raised dollar for dollar. This year the nominated charity is Can Assist Blayney. 

Can Assist are committed to ensuring that all country people, regardless of where they live, have access to cancer treatment and care. By providing support for accommodation and financial assistance to people from rural and regional areas, they ensure that country people are given the same opportunities and choices about the kind of treatment they receive as people in city centres.
