Cadia mine closed, tailings dam wall breach under close scrutiny

A dam wall at Newcrest‘s Cadia Valley Operations which partially collapsed on Friday night causing a spillage is being closely monitored for any further breaches.

Work has been been suspended indefinitely at the mine south of Orange following the collapse of the wall between Cadia mine’s northern and southern tailings dams.

The collapse came less than a day after two small earthquakes just five and 10 kilometres away.
