Newcrest Mining has responded to the coronavirus pandemic by suspending the use of Australian fly-in, fly-out workers at the Lihir gold mine in Papua New Guinea. The move will take effect within days, but Newcrest will continue to use FIFO workers at its mines in Australia. The company has noted that it primarily uses local workers at Lihir, rather than employees on FIFO arrangements. Australia’s gold, iron ore, copper, oil and gas sectors are particularly reliant on FIFO workers.
