About the site
Fosterville Gold Mine – operated by Agnico Eagle Mines Limited – is the largest gold producer in the state of Victoria. It is a high-grade, low-cost underground mine, situated 25 km east of Bendigo and 130 km north of the city of Melbourne.
As of the end of 2022, the mine had extracted over 3.9 million ounces of gold since the commencement of the current operation in 2005. It features highly profitable gold production, as well as extensive in-mine and district-scale exploration potential.
With over 800 people employed at the mine – who are mostly local to the area – Fosterville Gold Mine strongly believes in engaging with and contributing towards the local community.
