Wiluna Information

  • History 2015-08-31
    Matilda Gold Mine was previously named Mt Wilkinson and was operated by Chevron Exploration Corporation (Chevron) in the late 1980s and by Eon Metals NL (EON) in the early 1990s. Eon Metals ceased production in 1992 due to low gold prices with total combined production (since the 1900's) of approximately 2.66Mt @ 2.3 g/t gold for 163,000 ounces of gold.
  • History 2015-08-31
    Production from seven shallow pits: 2.66 Mt@ 2.31g/t 163,000oz au -1987-1992
  • General 2015-05-10
    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 1 million ounces and a 1Mtpa processing facility and a BIOX ® bacterial oxidation plant, along with other established infrastructure. Previous production and known resources occur in 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 these lodes 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 converting these to reserves. Apex is pursuing a vigorous drilling program at Wiluna with the dual aim of infill drilling known resources to the indicated category and drilling around previous known intercepts to delineate additional resources.
