Pogo gold mine pouring profits after years of trouble

The Pogo Mine has overcome early operational setbacks and is turning a profit. The State’s second-largest gold mine poured it first gold in early 2006 after construction costs ran $50 million over budget. The underground mining operation went on to suffer a major electrical fire, problems with ore processing equipment and trouble filling key jobs.
