Firm aims to re-open Tyndrum gold mine

PROSPECTORS applying to re-open Cononish’s underground gold mine say it could create up to 60 jobs.

Scotgold Resources Ltd, based in Upper Tyndrum Station, is scoping for a proposed gold mine 3km south-west of Tyndrum, according to a pre-application submitted to the Loch Lomond and the Trossachs National Park Authority.

Extraction and processing operations at Cononish gold mine were originally permitted in 1996, and subsequently in 2012 and 2015. This revised application, with redesigned phasing and tailing, is intended to bring financial and environmental benefits. Since May 2016, Scotgold has been producing the precious metal above ground via its Bulk Processing Trial, which has processed 2,400 tonnes of ore stockpiled from the 1980s.
