SnapshotStage Two Feasibility Study shows Bellevue will be a member of the exclusive club of global gold projects characterised by a tier-1 location, Reserve grade of +5 g/t and forecast production of +180,000ozpa.

30 October 2023 - Construction of the Bellevue Gold plant has been delivered on schedule and on budget, with practical completion of the 1Mtpa CIL processing facility achieved and the plant entered into the commissioning phase. During the commissioning period, expected for the balance of the December 2023 quarter, throughput will be progressively ramped up to the nameplate processing rate and underground stoping will increase the proportion of higher-grade ore feed to the plant. First gold poured from the Bellevue processing facility was received on 25 October 2023.

The toll treatment agreement (short-term contract from July 5, 2023) with Genesis Minerals Limited is complete with final ore processed early in the current December quarter.

Summary:

The Bellevue Project is located within the Agnew-Wiluna portion of the Norseman-Wiluna Greenstone belt, approximately 40 km NNW of Leinster. The project area comprises felsic to intermediate volcanic sequences, meta-sediments, ultramafic komatiite flows, Jones Creek Conglomerates and tholeiitic meta basalts (Mt Goode Basalt) which hosts the known gold deposits.

The major gold deposits in the area lie on or adjacent to north-northwest trending fault zones.

The Bellevue gold deposit is hosted by the partly tholeiitic meta-basalts of the Mount Goode Basalts in an area of faulting, shearing and dilation to form a shear hosted lode style quartz/basalt breccia.

Gold mineralisation in the area is structurally controlled and is generally associated with north-northwest striking and west dipping shear zones (dipping from 900 to 450), of 1 to 20 metre thickness. The exceptions are the Viago Lode, which is a low angle shear zone between 300 and 500 metres below surface which gently plunges to the south, and the Westralia and Vanguard lodes, which dip 450 to the north-east.
