Apex Minerals has updated the status of plant commissioning and production at its Wiluna Gold Mine, with all circuits in the Wiluna plant now commissioned.

Minor gold smelting has been undertaken and will continue this week with the first gold pour from concentrate currently in the BIOX circuit now expected in the week commencing 15 December.

This delay in gold production was primarily caused by minor control faults in electrical components, according to the company, providing power to the Mill 2 grinding circuit. However, the time required to locate and remedy these faults exceeded expectations and diverted resources from other commissioning tasks.
