The Nullagine Gold Project is located in the Pilbara region of Western Australia, approximately 185km north of Newman.
Gold production from the Nullagine Project is sourced from six mining centres established over a +40km strike length.
Ore is processed at the 2Mtpa Golden Eagle CIL ore treatment plant, with the ore delivered from multiple ore sources to a 150,000 tonne capacity stockpile where a front end load- er re-handles the ore into a ROM (run-of-mine) crusher feed bin.
Separate smaller stockpiles account for varying material hardness and grade, allowing for blending and process optimisation.
Production from Nullagine has traditionally been sourced from open pits, however development of the first-ever underground mine at Bartons is now underway, with first high- grade development ore delivered in July 2018 and high-grade stoping ore scheduled to commence in Q1 2019.
Gold production has historically averaged approximately 80,000 ounces per annum from the Nullagine Project, however Millennium Minerals is on-track to increase the production run-rate to 100,000 ounces per annum by the end of 2018.
