Part 2: Greenhouse Gas Emissions in Gold Mining – Australia in Depth

Published on May 27th, 2020

Principal Geologist, Sam Ulrich takes a look at the Greenhouse Gas Emissions and energy consumption of Australia’s gold mines in our latest series.

Step inside some of the critical areas to help understand the relationships between emissions intensity per unit of gold produced, where a mine sources its ore, the effect of changing gold grades, and the mine’s energy source.

This latest audio presentation looks at how a mine’s emissions intensity changes over time.
