KCGM manages the assets for joint venture partners, Newmont Mining Corporation and Barrick Australia Pacific. KCGM produces up to 800,000 ounces of gold per year and has approximately 750 personnel on site. Currently the Super Pit is approximately 3.5 kilometres long, 1.5 kilometres wide, and 370 metres deep. This brings the depth to below sea level at the bottom of the Super Pit. To look at it another way, it is as deep as Ularu / Ayers Rock is high - and has about the same circumference.
