70km long and 20km wide, Woodlark Island is located in the Solomon Sea in the Milne Bay Province of PNG. Home to the Woodlark Island Gold Mine, it is the site of the Woodlark Island Gold Project secured by Madsen Giersing.
The team at Madsen Giersing will be bringing our technical skill and proven marine capability to the project as we undertake design work for the development of wharf facilities to support the mining operation. Expected to be located to the west of the processing plant and connected by new road infrastructure, the wharf will be critical to the success of the project providing easy and safe access to the facility.
Operated by Geopacific Resources, the mine is expected to produce 980,182oz of gold over its mine life of 13 years.
CEO, Lasse Madsen, welcomed a new opportunity to support the resources sector in PNG “We are delighted to be working on another resources project in Papua New Guinea and helping to support the economic development of the region. Across our 30 years of operation, we have been involved in several critical marine projects, which have aided the sector’s growth and look forward to bringing our capabilities to this project.”
The team is currently involved in the development stages of the project and we will provide project updates as works progress.
