Open Pit Development. The Pumpkin Hollow open pit development is approximate 4 km west of the underground mine. It includes two large deposits and areas of potential expansion both in and outside of the projected pit walls. The recent pre-feasibilty study has highlighted the potential for improved economics, simplified build and phased expansion.

2021-9-1  9.2 Open Pit Mines. At the end of an open pit operation, sump pumps and/or dewatering wells are decommissioned. The geometry of the pit and the void volume may be modified if partially backfilled with mine waste. Following cessation of pumping, in most climatic regimes, both surface water and groundwater will inflow to the pit, creating a pit
