Pogo Gold Mine.

Pogo Mine temporarily suspended gold production efforts earlier on March 15 in order to conduct operations of its mill, according to a news release from its parent Northern Star Resources.

The Australian-based company said its ball mill motor at the Delta Junction-area mine was damaged during a routine mill shutdown. A ball mill helps with the processing of ore.
