Primary Gold has received final statutory approval received from the Australian Department of Mines, Industry Regulation and Safety allowing mining to commence at Coolgardie Project.

Mining is expected to start in the first quarter of 2018.

Key contracts with Hampton Mining & Civil and Mining & Drilling Services Pty Ltd will now be executed.

Garry Mills, managing director at Primary Gold, commented:

”Having received full approvals to commence mining at our Coolgardie operations, we can now move on to next steps of setting up site for mining. A firm schedule can now be put in place for mining of first ore and hence timing of processing ore parcels to be scheduled for toll treating. With mining commencing and exploration targeted for the Coolgardie leases, 2018 marks the beginning of an important new phase of growth and activity for Primary Gold. We are very much looking forward to what the coming year could bring.”

The Coolgardie project is an open pit, free milling ore in existing resource base, with an 200,000oz gold resource base with strong exploration upside.
