Prefeasibility study confirms viability of low capital cost start-up operation
A prefeasibility study for the Coolgardie project confirmed the viability of a low capital cost start-up gold mining operation based on the extraction of shallow reserves across three initial starter pits.
Ore from the Tycho, MacPhersons and A-Cap pits will be processed via a toll treatment arrangement at a nearby facility.
The company also plans to undertake further reverse circulation grade control drilling in 2018.
