Australia: NSW: Hillgrove Gold in New England aims to reopen by end of year

Red River Resources took over the site east of Armidale last year after it was closed by Bracken Resources in 2016.

Mining activity began at the site in 1857 and has produced 738,000 ounces of gold in its lifetime.

High gold prices meant the mineral would be the company's main focus.

About 40 people will be employed at the site in the first phase.

The company said there were no plans for expansion of the mine, as yet.
