Empire Resources Ltd. achieved first gold pour from its recently commissioned Penny's Find gold mine in Western Australia, the company said Oct. 4.
The doré gold bar was poured at Golden Mile Milling Pty. Ltd.'s Lakewood toll milling facility from a portion of the gravity gold recovered in the processing of Penny's Find ore.
An additional 9,000 tonnes of Penny's Find ore already stockpiled at Lakewood is currently being processed. Meanwhile, the company expects further gold pours of gravity and leach circuit gold later in the week.
To date, 16,000 tonnes of ore has also been transported to Maximus Resources Ltd.'s Western Australia-based Burbanks toll milling facility and is currently being processed, with a gold pour expected later in the week.
