BONNIEVALE PROJECT
New project of Mining (Exploration - Drilling) project at 10km north of, Coolgardie, WA 6429. Retrieval of the tailings and rehabilitation of the site will now be undertaken in-house.

Approximately half of the tailings are now contained within a vat having been partially leached; the remainder are in 1.5 metres high mounds. auger samples were analysed for gold using an aqua-regia digestion. From this work it is estimated that 4,500 tonnes at 0.7g/t gold is within the vat and 5500 tonnes at 1.3g/t gold remains un-retained in mounds. The bulk sampling was analysed using a cyanide leach method. It returned similar grades to the auger sampling for the tailings in the mounds, however the grades within the vat averaged 0.4g/t gold.

Ore will be stockpiled at the port until it is loaded onto ships for export to overseas customers. The major components of the Pardoo DSO Project are: minesite establishment, mining operations, product transport and export and decommissioning and closure. The minesite access road and temporary construction yard and administration area will be the first infrastructure constructed. The mining operations centre (MOC) will be located in the northern portion of the minesite and contains the following infrastructure: administration area including Atlas facilities, mining contractor's facilities, crushing and screening contractor's facilities, haulage contractors facilities, sewerage treatment and waste water storage, potable water storage, common parking area. The MOC will also contain a fuel storage and refuelling area, power station (diesel), crushing and screening plant, ROM ore pad and product stockpiling area, parking areas and portions of the access road and haul road, and combined contractor's laydown area. Haul roads will be constructed between the pits, waste rock dumps, stockpiles and ROM pad stockpile. Minor access roads will provide access to waste rock dumps and inspection points, dewatering equipment, water management structures, environmental discharge locations and other minesite management areas. The proposed mining operation will be a multiple, open pit mining operation, using conventional drill and blast and load and haul methods.
