WILUNA GOLD MINING OPERATIONS
Operating Mine New project In The Wiluna Council Area. Resource estimate is 4,236,000 tonnes @ 6.6 g/t for 893,000 ounces of Au. Underground production for the September Quarter 2006 was 119,232 tonnes @ 5.38 gpt. In order to continue to find ore for the Wiluna processing plant around mine exploration is continuing. A proposal to construct a 950 metre shaft haulage system to cost $30-40 million. This would extract up to 1 million tonnes of ore per year and save haulage costs. At present haulage is $15 @ tonne, with the shaft hoist it would be $2.50 @ tonne. This project will proceed when new resources of 2 Mt of ore are discovered around, Calais, Woodley and Bulletin Repeat. Click for more details...
