Gold miner Newcrest Mining has been given approval to use the first 200m of the old Cadia Hill openpit operation, in New South Wales, as a tailings storage facility.

The Cadia Hill openpit would be used in lieu of the Northern tailings facility, where a breakthrough of tailings material was reported in March, which resulted in Newcrest suspending operations at the Cadia project.
