The Super Pit was Australia’s largest open cut gold mine until 2016 when it was surpassed by the Newmont Boddington gold mine also in Western Australia. Located off the Goldfields Highway on the south-east edge of Kalgoorlie, the pit is oblong in plan view and approx. 3.5 km long, 1.5 km wide and over 600 metres deep. The Super Pit is owned by Kalgoorlie Consolidated Gold Mines, a company owned 50:50 by Barrick Gold Corporation and Newmont Mining Corporation. The mine produced 628,000 troy ounces (19.5 t) of gold in 2018, and employs around 1,100 employees and contractors directly on site.
