Harmony Gold project granted ‘Prescribed Project’ status

Harmony Gold said the Queensland government has declared its Eva copper mine project as a “Prescribed Project,” in recognition of its social and economic significance to the state’s North West region.

The designation will support the coordination of approval processes required for the project, which is located on traditional lands of the Kalkadoon People, 75 kilometres north of Cloncurry.

Harmony Gold acquired 100% of Eva and 16 exploration tenements in December 2022, extending the miner’s diversification into copper, a future-facing metal critical to the energy transition.

The company is currently updating a feasibility study to underpin the proposed development of the project. The update will outline the most effective execution and financing approach to bring the mine into production, with construction expected to take two to three years.
