How Fosterville Gold Mine’s future will be decided  

Bendigo was built on gold and in recent years, the gold rush has been revived at Fosterville Gold Mine (FGM), located 20km northeast of Bendigo, with over 4.2 million ounces of gold produced since 2005.

To continue operating and being an active part of the community, Fosterville Gold Mine has prepared the Sustained Operations Project (SOP) Environment Effects Statement (EES) to explore what the next 10 years of operation will look like.
