Greenfinch (Edna May)
Greenfinch hosted by the Greenfinch Gneiss unit. Host rock, mineralisation style and resource modelling are very similar to the adjacent Edna May deposit.
Revised modelling was carried out by Ramelius in 2018 and a resource generated for pit evaluation. A Probable Ore Reserve contains 1.7 Mt @ 1.2 g/t for 62,000 oz.
Greenfinch sits within the Westonia town common, a restricted woodland area, preserved due to the presence of the mine site and town.
The project received environmental approvals in January 2020, and commenced grade control drilling in February 2020.
