Resources and Energy Group (REZ) has received results from a milling campaign at the Granny Venn open-pit gold mine in Western Australia.

In October, a total of 24,459 tonnes were milled at a head grade of 2.47 grams of gold per tonne. This resulted in the company recovering 1766 ounces of gold at a recovered grade of 2.23g/t gold.

Company director Dan Moore commented on the program outcomes.

“This is a great outcome for the project and underscores the capabilities of our mining partner BM Mining Services to deliver a result at or above mine plan estimates,” he said.

This work is part of its focus on investigating opportunities for renewed mining operations in parts of the East Menzies gold project, which is a 100-square kilometre package.

Resources and Energy plans to follow up this program with a second milling campaign where mining operations have reached the ore body in the east cut back.

The east cut back is the primary source for the operation, with early signs the ore resources are larger than originally modelled. REZ expects this will be confirmed once it receives results from the first ore shoots.

The second milling campaign of 25,000 tonnes is expected to begin later in December.

Company shares ended the day 4.44 per cent in the green to close at 4.7 cents.
