An expansion project is currently underway to bring the designed production rate from the DOZ block cave mine up above 50,000 tonnes per day. This project is

intended to increase productivity of the DOZ orebody with the possibility of combining the adjacent ESZ orebody within the overall block cave plan. Two key elements of the expansion are the construction of a second primary underground crusher and the expansion of the exhaust ventilation system.
