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.

BETA HUNT NICKEL PROJECT
Resource - Nickel New project In The Coolgardie Council Area. The project includes a remnant resource at the Hunt nickel mine and the developed but un-mined Beta nickel project.

From 200m to 360m a total of 3.6mt grading 7.2gpt gold is estimated. Between 360m and 800m an inferred resource of 3.85mt at 5.5gpt gold has been estimated. Ore production is due to start in 1998 for a mine life of approximately 16 years at a rate of 1mtpa-1.25mtpa. Drilling to test mineralisation from 650m to 1,000m demonstrated encouraging widths and grades with best results including 27.5m (from 1,008m) grading 10.1gpt gold. Mining & haulage expected to utilise inhouse resources. Ore will be processed through the Joint Venture's refractory plant at Kanowna Belle. The decline is expected to extend to 760m to allow additional exploration & ore definition work to be conducted. This contract will include diamond drilling (28,000m), raise boring (1,400m) & decline (9,000m). Associated electricals to also form part of this tender. Click for more details...

Resource - Gold project at 150 km northwest of, Kalgoorlie, WA 6430 In The Council Area Of Kalgoorlie-Boulder of Private. Two exploration drill programmes and a review of goechemical and geophysical data were completed over the mine leases during the quarter. In total, 7 underground exploration diamond drill holes for 1,177.9 m were undertaken on lode extensions on Lo3 and to follow up a near surface intercept on 9 metres at 21.2 g/t gold on the Silverwing prospect. A drill programme comprising 38 angled holes and totalling 2,587 m was completed on the Anomaly 2, EMI, Lo5, Ultramafic Contact and Silverwing prospects. This drill programme was designed to further evaluate prospect areas known to have the potential to host economic open pit mineralisation within a 600 metre radius of the Lo2 open pit. This drilling mainly confirmed narrow Mt Dimer lode structures. The current exploration activities on the Mount Dimer mine leases are directed toward the generation of new supergene exploration targets in the Frodo, Golden Slipper and Karli West regions. Reprocessing of existing Mt Dimer aeromagnetic survey data resulted in the delineation of several targets coincident with areas of high soil geochemical response and in keeping with the revised geological model.
