Independence is scaling back operations at its Jaguar operation, with nine jobs soon to be cut.

Independence cuts jobs, exploration

Gold and nickel miner Independence Group plans to make about 40 employees redundant after announcing it would cut exploration spending by $20 million in response to weak base metals prices.

The company announced today that it had suspended activities at its Long operation in the Goldfields due to the depressed nickel market, resulting in about 30 jobs being made redundant this month.

The company said it would be able to resume activities at Long once nickel prices improved.
