Northern Star Mining Services
Northern Star (ASX: NST) is a global-scale ASX 100 gold producer with world-class projects located in highly prospective and low sovereign risk regions of Western Australia and the Northern Territory. Since the acquisition of the high-grade, low-cost Paulsens mine in July 2010, Northern Star has continued to assemble a portfolio of high-quality, high-margin mining operations, with the aim of delivering maximum total returns to our Shareholders.
We rapidly transformed from a 100,000oz per year, single mine producer in 2010, to now operating three concentrated centres with total annual production of 525,000-575,000oz. Northern Star’s gold mines are all world-class, low-cost, high-grade gold mines, which together have produced over 20 million ounces to date: Jundee, Kundana (the East Kundana Joint Venture – Northern Star’s interest: 51%), Kanowna Belle and Paulsens. Since acquiring these operations, Northern Star has been able to significantly extend the mine life and grow the resource base of all of our mines by investing heavily in near-mine and in-mine exploration.
In early 2015, the Company announced a joint venture on the Central Tanami Project with ASX-listed Tanami Gold (ASX: TAM), which will see Northern Star expand its footprint into the highly prospective Tanami district of the Northern Territory.
Northern Star is led and governed by an exceptional, highly-experienced Board and management team. This team has a clear strategy to deliver future growth and a demonstrated ability to move quickly to capitalise on strategic growth opportunities to maximise value for Shareholders.
