Wiluna is a world class goldfield having produced approximately 4 million ounces of gold during its history. It is located 1,000 kilometres northeast of Perth and comprises mining leases covering approximately 50 square kilometers, as well as miscellaneous licences. The operation has access to the Goldfields Gas Pipeline and includes gold resources totalling over 2 million ounces and a 1Mtpa processing facility and a BIOX ® bacterial oxidation plant, along with other established infrastructure.
Previous production and known resourcesare hosted by two main fault structures, the East Lode and West Lode, to a depth of 1,000 metres below surface. It is estimated that only 50% of the known extent of thesestructures has been tested by systematic exploration drilling, with much of this carried out at very broad drill spacing. Considerable potential therefore exists for the delineation of additional resources with a high probability of convertingthesetoreserves.
