WA gold explorer Carrick Gold has commenced a Pre-Feasibility Study (PFS) for the first stage of open-pit mining operations at its Lindsay’s, Brilliant and Kalpini gold projects, located within 90 km north east of Kalgoorlie.
Carrick has commissioned Golder Associates to commence the PFS following positive results from internal studies completed by the company.
Carrick Chairman Frank Carr said the commencement of the PFS was a significant milestone for the company.
“This marks a significant step for Carrick in its path to becoming an Australian mid-tier gold producer with significant scale and initial production targets of 100,000 — 200,000 ounces per annum,” Carr said.
“Carrick has, over many years, quietly and successfully established a JORC resource that exceeds 4 million ounces.”
According to the company, the mineralisation remains open along strike and at depth, with fully funded drill programmes in place to add additional mineable resources.
Carrick currently has a tenement holding of about 450 km² in the Goldfields region of Western Australia, located north east of Kalgoorlie.
Carrick has already discovered three gold deposits and a host of other exciting prospects which it will explore while progressing the development of the Lindsay’s project.
