Stonewall is focused on developing underground and open pit mines within its South African TGME project which contains Theta Hill.

The company declared a maiden JORC resource of 4.48 million tonnes grading 4.14 g/t gold for 600,000 ounces gold at Theta Hill last month.

Theta Hill is a near-term open-pit gold mine opportunity and the resource has been estimated within the confines of an open pit shell with a maximum depth of 100 metres.

Notably, the new 600,000-ounce gold resource expands the global gold resource to 5.75 million ounces grading 4.57 g/t gold.

The company aims to upgrade further resources to the indicated category ahead of converting the resources to ore reserve status for mining.

A feasibility study is planned for Theta Hill to be delivered in the March quarter of 2019, which will incorporate a maiden ore reserve estimate.
