Exploration consists of research, data compilation and geophysical investigations which are followed-up with drilling in order to compile a geological model. An optimised sample programme is planned which results in addition resources as well as increase in confidence.
The short term mine planned focused on preliminary two areas as delineated in the resource estimation. The Mine Grid Reference has 50 x 50m block sizes and all planning, depletion and reporting are done according to these blocks. The 10 year Mine Plan was done on the grade/tonnage curve as defined by the Competent Persons Report. Mining operations continue annually from 01 April to 31 March. Operations are restricted to day time and hours. The mining fleet consists of four excavators, three articulated dump trucks, a bulldozer and three vacuum machines which are used to clean the bedrock.
