    The Lihir Gold Mine in Papua New Guinea is a world-class open pit gold mine that contains an active geothermal system. Temperatures within the ore bodies are up to 200 C and this presents a major constraint to mining operations and creates the potential for geothermal hazards including hydrothermal eruptions. For mining to be feasible, it is necessary to depressurize and cool down the hot
