OceanaGold started developing Globe Progress mine in Victoria Forest Park near Reefton in 2005, with mining starting soon after. During the mine's life it employed about 200 full time staff and indirectly supported contractors and suppliers. In total it produced 610,000 ounces of gold. Mining ended in 2015, with full closure at the end of 2016. Replanting and rehabilitation was ongoing while mining was underway, but is now in full swing.
