Wiluna full steam ahead with mine expansion

Republished from thewest.com.au

Wiluna Mining continues full steam ahead in the expansion of the giant Wiluna gold mine in Western Australia. The world-class gold deposit has produced outstanding results from underground development drilling with diamond core returning 5.96m at 112.98 g/t gold including 0.65m at an incredible 880 g/t gold from the Golden Age lode.

The stream of high-grade intercepts from the sulphide development drilling program at Wiluna has provided the company with the confidence to push ahead with its expansion plans at the operation. Management is aiming to more than double its current gold output over the next few years to a lucrative 250,000 ounces of gold per annum. The increase in output is expected to come from the addition of a second production stream to the operation with the expanded plant set to produce free gold and an innovative gold-in-concentrate product.

Wiluna’s ongoing drilling campaign is designed to expand the company’s high-grade resource inventory to provide feed to its burgeoning milling operation. The company has already completed more than 18,000 metres of the development program, and with six rigs currently on site drilling up a storm it managed to report the results from a further 68 drill holes today.
