The start of work by local mining contractor Hampton Transport Services Pty Ltd follows approval by Horizons board of the stage-one development.

Site establishment and mobilisation of mining fleet are complete with open cut mining underway at the Regal East open cut using conventional truck and shovel operations.

First ore this month


First ore is expected this month and first ore delivery to the mill in June with the Regal West and Crown Jewel pits to be developed in parallel to enable optimal cycling of mining and drill and blast activities.

After fully drawing a $4 million working capital facility and with all necessary approvals in place, the company is fully funded for the stage-one development.
