Calidus Resources Limited (ASX:CAI) has undertaken its first gold pour from the Carbon in Leach (CIL) Circuit, marking the successful completion of commissioning of the full processing circuit at the Warrawoona Gold Project in Western Australia.
A total of 33kg of gold was poured. The processing plant is fully operational and has achieved milling rates of 2.2Mtpa with the full ramp up to 2.4Mtpa expected to be completed this quarter.
“Commissioning of our processing plant was highly successful and is a tribute to the skills of our team,” Calidus Managing Director Dave Reeves said.
“We are increasing throughput and gold output with the aim of reaching full production rates this quarter.
“We wish to thank all Calidus personnel, who, with our key contractors GR Engineering Services Limited, Machmon Holdings Limited and Assetlink Services Limited, have allowed us to deliver the Warrawoona Gold Project, on time and on budget.
“Over the remainder of the quarter, we will focus on our operational ramp-up and other site activities including our active exploration programmes that have taken place during the course of development.”
To mark this milestone, Calidus will be minting a commemorative 1oz gold coin for interested parties to purchase.
