PERTH (miningweekly.com) – ASX-listed Focus Minerals has poured its first gold at its restarted Coolgardie gold operations, in Western Australia.

The junior resumed openpit mining earlier this year and is progressing the resumption of gold production with the recent commissioning of its 1.2-million-tonne-a-year Three Mile Hill plant.

“I congratulate the Focus team and our contractors involved in achieving this transformational milestone, for the safe and successful delivery of first gold at the Coolgardie gold operations,” said Focus Minerals executive chairperson Wanghong Yang.

"Focus is now the newest gold producer in West Australia. We are now looking to ramp up from commissioning to commercial production at nameplate capacity during this September quarter.”

A new life-of-mine plan at Coolgardie estimated that 402 000 oz of gold could be produced over a seven-year mine life.
