After an impressive debut in 2013, the Tropicana gold mine has consistently achieved or beaten performance targets. Owned by AngloGold Ashanti Australia Ltd (70% and manager) and IGO Ltd (30%), this large-scale, modern gold operation has been one of the most significant Australian gold discoveries of the last decade.
Tropicana has now established itself as an industry leader in operational excellence, offering an attractive working environment and contemporary accommodation and facilities.
