Saracen Mineral Holdings Limited announced that after immediately suspending all operations on the recent fatality at its Carosue Dam Operations in Western Australia, ore processing will resume, with underground development and open pit mining to follow imminently. Saracen is currently reviewing principal hazards and controls, conducting workplace inspections and audits, and developing a return to work plan to ensure stoping activities at CDO can safely resume in the coming days. In parallel, Saracen continues to work closely with the WA Department of Mines, Industry Regulation and Safety on the investigation into the incident. The Company's other operations are continuing as normal. Saracen's FY21 production guidance remains unchanged. As stated previously, Saracen will update the production and cost outlook for each of its operations later in the current September quarter.

Saracen Mineral Holdings earlier advised that the underground contractor involved in the incident at its Dervish mine in WA has passed away. Saracen Managing Director Mr Raleigh Finlayson had said "This is an extremely tragic accident and all our thoughts are with his family at this very difficult time. The health and safety of our people is always our first priority. Saracen is currently working closely with the WA Department of Mines, Industry Regulation and Safety on the continuing investigation, while working with our contract partners to ensure full support is provided to the family and all Saracen employees and contractors."
