BONNIEVALE PROJECT
New project of Mining (Underground - including longwall) project at 10km north of, Coolgardie, WA 6429. Retrieval of the tailings and rehabilitation of the site will now be undertaken in-house. Historical gold mining and treatment has resulted in an estimated 10,000 tonnes of tailings being retained on the lease. 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.

CRACOW GOLD PROJECT - RESOURCE
Operating Mine New project In The Banana Shire Council Area. Resource estimate is 3.6 Mt @ 10 gpt with reserves being 780,000 tonnes @ 12 gpt. Gold production for December Quarter 2006 was 29,000,000 tonnes @ 9.7 g/t for 8,400 ounces of Au. Development expenditure of $23 million for 2006/2007 includes a decline access to the sovereign shoot and towards the Empire and Sterling zones of mineralisation; decline development of the lower portion of Crown shoot and the lifting of the tailings storage facility. The recently discovered Kilkenny structure is located on the western side of this zone. Recent exploration at Cracow has been focused on drilling of Kilkenny, in addition to drilling on the Sovereign, Roses Pride and Empire shoots. Drilling of the Kilkenny structure defined two steeply plunging shoots of epithermal gold mineralisation. Gold is hosted within a lode structure similar to the Crown and Sovereign shoots. At June 2008, Newcrest calculated an Inferred Resource for Kilkenny (based on a cut off grade of 2.3 g/t gold) of 0.9 Mt at 7.1 g/t for 200,000 ounces. Click for more details...

NORTH BIRDS PROJECT
Mining (Underground - including longwall) project In The Greater Bendigo Council Area of Private ownership. A diamond drill hole was targeted through the known mineralisation to help confirm the geological interpretation form the original RC drilling. The structure was intercepted at 46m down hold and was 10m wide. Half core assays over this interval averaged 4.4 g/t gold. Three RC drillholes located 100m south of the known mineralisation intersected old stopes. This downgrades the potential to the south. Click for more details...

KINGOWER COAL PROJECT
North of, Emerald, QLD 4720 Has Kingower Coal Project currently at Exploration, Drilling, Survey & Assessment stage. Previously, vitrinite reflectances were measured for coal samples recovered from the open-hole drilling conducted previously on the Kingower tenement. The Corvus Seam gave a range of values from 0.59 to 0.65, which is indicative of a coal of this rank. Only two samples of the German Creek Seam could be measured and these gave values of 0.63 and 0.99 respectively. The high value recorded from drill hole KG 001 is of interest. It indicates that the German Creek Seam may contain coal of higher rank that was previously interpreted and shows that it is possible that coking coal can be found in this tenement. Aquila executed an agreement with Bowen Central Coal Pty Ltd to form a Joint Venture to be known as the Bowen Central Coal Joint Venture, to explore, develop and mine for coal on all its current coal portfolio in the Surat and Bowen Basins, except a large portion of EPC 755 (Moranbah East).

WILLUGUDINNA HILL PROJECT - VARIOUS MINERALS RESOURCE
Willugudinna Hill Project - Various Minerals Resource is currently at the Exploration, Drilling, Survey & Assessment stage, valued at about $ 1000000 it is The drilling programmes are designed to investigate three priority targets considered to have potential for nickel/copper sulphide mineralisation similar to that at Voisey's Bay in Canada. Demonstrated potential exists within the Musgrave Province of South Australia for base metals (copper, lead, zinc), ferrous metals (chromium, nickel, vanadium, titanium) and uranium. Potential also exists for precious metals (platinum group metals, gold), precious stones (diamonds, rubies), heavy mineral sands and rare earths. The prospectivity of Proterozoic rocks is well recognised and, with the exception of those contained within the Musgrave Province, have generally been subject to intense exploration for a considerable period of time yielding a number of World Class mineral deposits.

GOONYELLA RIVERSIDE BROADMEADOW COAL OPERATIONS EXPANSION
A project in the QLD Within Isaac Regional. The project involves an expansion of the existing Goonyella Riverside open cut and the underground operations at Broadmeadow to increase the capacity from 16 Mt/a to 24 Mt/a. Mining and processing will yield a Hard Coking Coal product for the export market. The open cut expansion and underground expansions will result in an additional 5Mt/a and 3Mt/a of product coal respectively. The surface expansion will use the current open cut mining methods, which involve truck and shovel fleets and draglines exposing coal. Most of the open cut spoil from the expanded operations will be disposed of within mined out pits as is the current practice. However, it is expected that some of the spoil will need to be disposed of in out-of-pit spoil dumps. The existing Broadmeadow Mine, which extracts the Goonyella Middle Seam (GMS), will be expanded eastwards using either the conventional longwall mining practices currently being used for its operations or see the introduction of Longwall Top Coal Caving (LTCC) technology once its feasibility is proven as a means to improve the levels of resource recovery compared to conventional longwall mining methods. A second longwall mine is currently under investigation using either conventional longwall methods or LTCC method. The existing mine has much of the necessary infrastructure in place, however, there are infrastructure upgrades required for the expansion of the mine including: a new CHPP and upgrade to the existing CHPP; construction of an additional 66kV feeder adjacent to the present Goonyella 66kV line; expansion of the existing tailings storage facilities to accommodate increased tailings volumes; improvements to the existing mine water management system, including clean water diversion, disturbed area runoff collection and treatment, pit water management, water reuse and water disposal if there is surplus water at any time that cannot be reused on site. The expansion element of the project requires an additional coal preparation capacity of approximately 2 370 tonnes per hour (t/h) to achieve a production rate of 24 Mt/a. The options to achieve this throughput are to expand the existing CHPP's and/or build a new plant to supplement one or both existing plants. The new CHPP is likely to be tied into the existing product handling system. Alternatively a separate train load-out will be constructed on one of the existing rail loops. The product coal will be railed approximately 190km to the Hay Point and/or Dalrymple Bay coal terminals. Click for more details...
