Commissioning of this project started in mid 2015. Mining is carried out utilising underground methods and ore is processed in a conventional 1.4Mt/a Merrill-Crowe plant. By the second half of 2016 the mill was operating at an average rate of 3.85kt/d above the mill plan of 3.5kt/d ore. This was sustained in 2017. The initial mine life of this project was estimated at 7 years but because of its significant amount of resources this could be extended beyond the 7 years.
