The company is advancing the project back into a high-grade gold operation

Bellevue Gold Ltd (ASX:BGL) is well funded to restart gold mining and production at its namesake project in WA, with $19.8 million in cash as at June 30, 2019.

High grade gold was mined at the project at various times for over 100 years at the Bellevue lode through to 1997 when the operation shut down at around 430 metres below surface.

Around 800,000 ounces of gold have been produced at a reported head grade of about 15 g/t from a narrow vein operation.

After the mine closure in 1997 very little modern exploration was completed at the project and Bellevue Gold is undertaking the first systematic exploration at the property in the last 20 years.

Bellevue has delineated 1.8 million ounces of gold in less than 18 months from discovery, making it one of the fastest and highest-grade gold discoveries globally.

In addition to the continued expansion of the current high-grade gold resource, Bellevue has made significant progress in early permitting and development works to de-risk the recommencement of mining.

With six drill rigs currently operating on site, the company intends to build on step-out expansion drilling, target the exciting new deeper targets beneath the old Bellevue Mine and commence first pass infill drilling over the current resource areas.

 

Bellevue managing director Steve Parsons recently said: “It is an exciting time for the company with the resource estimate continuing to grow and early development and permiting works beginning to advance with the addition of a project director to the Bellevue team.

“The company anticipates to continue progress over coming quarters with our growth and derisking strategy to advance the Bellevue Gold Project back into a high grade gold operation”
