The Fosterville Mine is a high-grade, low cost underground gold mine, located 20km from the city of Bendigo in the State of Victoria, Australia. The Fosterville Mine features growing gold production at increasingly high grades, as well as extensive in-mine and district scale exploration potential.

Adhering to the strict environmental standards of mines, DWW was able to treat the domestic WW to a high quality so the effluent could be used in gold processing.

There are strict protocols and procedures required as biota from the Waste water treatment plant can compete with the engineered mineral eating bacteria, resulting in filtered gold.
