During the first two years $42 million will be spent on development. Production cost is expected to be $34 per tonne of ore processed. The project will develop in two stages with phase one involving decline development and exploration access for the drill program, while providing a platform for production from the upper levels of the resource. Phase two will extract the remaining resources identified in phase one. The feasibility study completed a comprehensive metallurgical test work, processing strategy using the existing plant, options study on different mining methods, environmental issues connected to tailing storage have been addressed. Underground mining is the method of mining. The Mount Wright prospect is located 10 km northwest of the Sarsfield open pit and is proposed to be developed as a decline accessed underground mine. Mining is to be by open stoping with 50 metre sub-levels at an extraction rate of 1 million tonnes per annum. An extensive underground DC drilling program will be undertaken in conjunction with mine development to upgrade the resource status. Inferred and indicated resource estimate is 1,054,722 ounces of gold. An eight year production life to 2015 and production rate of 1 MTPA. 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).
