Ausgold has appointed GR Engineering Services to complete a Scoping Study on its Katanning Gold Project.
GR Engineering is a Western Australian engineering company with a proven track record of delivering successful project solutions. With over 20 years of experience, it provides a range of high-quality processes of engineering services, including scoping and feasibility study preparation, management and process design.
“The commencement of a Scoping Study with the appointment of GR Engineering is a significant milestone for the company,” Ausgold Managing Director Matthew Greentree said.
The Scoping Study is aimed at highlighting the near-term development potential of the Katanning Gold Project to be a successful mining operation.
The Katanning Gold Project is located 275 kilometres southeast of Perth and approximately 40 kilometres northeast of the town of Katanning. Ausgold holds a dominant ground position of the under-explored region and is the sole owner of the Katanning Project.
“Ausgold has demonstrated robustness of the current 1.04 million ounce Mineral Resource which benefits from being located near to key infrastructure including grid power, sealed roads and the town of Katanning,” Matthew said.
Simultaneously SRK Consulting has been appointed to complete a preliminary Mine Planning Study. SRK services the mining industry by offering resource estimations, feasibility studies and mine planning.
The company stated the Scoping Study couldn’t have commenced at a better time as gold prices are achieving ‘record highs’ and the demand for new greenfield development opportunities.
“This has highlighted the potential to further expand the KGP’s current Mineral Resource with the aim of unlocking the multi-million ounce potential of the project,” Matthew said.
