The Darlot gold mine is an underground operation located approximately 680 kilometres northeast of Perth, Western Australia. Ore is treated by conventional carbon-in-leach at the on-site Processing Plant.
It was a few years ago in 2009 I got to spend some time at Darlot, most of the guys there for Barrick work and 8&6 roster and some of the catering staff which was run by Sodexo back then were on 2 and 1 rosters... Some of the contractors would be on different rosters. Like myself at the time many of the blokes drive in and drive out from Kalgoorlie but I believe many fly in from Perth.
good site good bunch of blokes
Not a bad place, I enjoyed it - spent a couple of years here. Used to get more than it's fair share of decent chicks with low standards and also - pleasure of pleasures - while I was there a couple of cleaners who would do room visits after hours. Hand relief was quick, professional and $20. Headjob $50 "Till its done". Nothing compared to a site in Asia (whole new level of room service) but for a battered and weary underground bloke, most welcome. Good wet mess too. Underground Superintendent was a cunt - we're talking early 2000's - you know who you are. I saw him smile once, it frightened me that bad I had a strong urge to leap out the nearest window. Otherwise, a good place to work, one of the better ones.
