The coronavirus pandemic has had less impact on the mining industry than other sectors of the Australian economy. However, Northern Star Resources’ executive chairman Bill Beament has warned against complacency, arguing that a mine would be completely shut down if just one case of the virus were detected at the site. Saracen Mineral Holdings CFO Morgan Ball agrees that it is too soon to relax COVID-19 restrictions in the sector. Meanwhile, major resources groups support the Western Australian government’s plan to step up the testing of fly-in, fly-out workers for the virus.
