Wiluna Mining strikes gold in shadow of headframe

Wiluna Mining strikes gold in shadow of headframe

Republished from thewest.com.au


With a combined gold ore reserve of some 1.4 million ounces grading 1.7 grams per tonne and a total resource of 93.2Mt grading a solid 2.13g/t for around 6.4m ounces, Wiluna Mining is having no trouble finding even more gold – all within the shadow of the old headframe.

The company’s exceptional recent results coincide with its recent rebrand from Blackham Resources to Wiluna Mining, reflecting its namesake project located in the north-eastern Goldfields of Western Australia.

New drilling results from the Essex deposit returned 8 metres grading 5.31g/t from 168m down hole including 2m grading 18.12g/t and 8m grading 15.20g/t from 248m that included a 5m zone grading 23g/t.

Results just in from the Bulletin deposit returned shallow intercepts such as 7.4m grading 15.82g/t from 40.56m and in another hole, 4.1m grading 4.88g/t from just 44.15m.

Seven drill rigs are going hard at it now at Wiluna as part of the company’s strategy to increase its multi-million-ounce resource and assess the planned “stage one” sulphide ore expansion project.

The company said the historically mined Bulletin shoot ran between 7g/t and 8g/t and produced a serious 900,000 ounces of gold.
