Bellevue gold mine delivers exceptional results

Bellevue Gold has demonstrated strength in its resource model through significant gold discovery at its Bellevue gold mine.

The Bellevue gold project is located in Western Australia, and returned up to 1130 grams per tonne of gold during a grade control drilling exercise.

The grade control drilling exercise results come off the back of Bellevue Gold announcing the start of mining at the Bellevue gold project’s Vanguard open pit in early April.

Bellevue managing director Darren Stralow said the results were exceptional.

“These exceptional results are important because they demonstrate the extremely robust nature of the resource model and therefore the strength of the production forecasts,” Stralow said.

“On site, we are continuing to hit our targets, with the underground development and construction activities on time and on budget.”

In additional to the major gold discovery, Bellevue reported its significant high-grade results returned from all its underground production areas, which stayed on time and budget.

Results from Armand include:

  • 9 metres (m) at 91.5 grams per tonne (g/t) of gold, plus 0.3m at 1130 g/t of gold
  • 6m at 142.5 g/t of gold, including 0.4m at 599 g/t of gold
  • 7m at 26.3 g/t of gold
  • 1m at 36.9 g/t of gold, including 0.9m at 116.9 g/t of gold

Results from the Marceline area saw:

  • 8m at 123.3 g/t of gold
  • 4m at 25.6 g/t of gold, including 1.9m at 53.4 g/t of gold
  • 9m at 85.1 g/t of gold, including 0.7m at 156.9 g/t of gold

The Bellevue south mining area saw:

  • 1m at 52.6 g/t of gold
  • 7m at 28.1g/t of gold
  • 5m at 10.7 g/t of gold

Bellevue said the results continue to confirm the robustness of the resource models for all its mining areas, as well as highlight the excellent quality and flexibility of its resource and mine schedule.
