Kainantu gold mine

Kainantu gold mine in Eastern Highlands Province began production in 2006 with a planned production of 110,000 oz of gold per year.

It is an underground mine and the concentrate is trucked to Lae and shipped to Japan for processing.

In 2007 Highlands Pacific sold the troubled mine to Barrick Gold of Canada but in January 2009 production was halted.
