Outstanding metallurgical gold recoveries up to 99.3% have been achieved at Baggy Green using a conventional flowsheet

Superb metallurgical gold recoveries to 99.3% at Baggy Green

Gold recoveries to 99.3% and averaging 98.7% have been recorded for four metallurgical samples from the Baggy Green deposit, located in the wholly owned Wudinna Gold Camp

The samples comprise one supergene and three primary zone samples. A conventional gravity and cyanide leach flowsheet gave consistent gold recoveries across ore types.

A mimimum 40% of the gold reports to a gravity concentrate, whle gravity tails leaching is achieved with only modest reagent additions.

The Baggy Green results are equivalent to the excellent metallurgical results achieved for the nearby Barns deposit, where high gold recoveries averaging 97.9% were achieved using an identical gravity and cyanide leach flowsheet.

Together Barns and Baggy Green contribute 95% of the Wudinna Gold Camp's total Mineral resource of 200,300 ounces, and this work confirms that both deposits can be efficiently treated using a conventional flowsheet in a single processing plant.

The next logical metallurgical test work for Barns and Baggy Green would involve coarsening the grind size to establish the optimum economic grind-recovery combination.
