Westgold Resources (WGX) has commenced stope mining at the South Emu-Triton underground mine, located within its Meekatharra Gold Operations.

The South Emu and Triton mines are located on the southern end of what is referred to as the Reedy Shear Zone.

The Triton mine was one of the first gold mines developed by Western Mining Corporation and one of the early projects for mining legend, the late Sir Arvi Parbo.

Westgold has been mining at South Emu for over two years, and last year cut a new 700-metre-long decline from the South Emu pit to gain access under the mine.

Significant intercepts from the latest drilling at Triton North include 8.2 metres at 6.21 grams per tonne (g/t) of gold from 50 metres and 12.4 metres at 4.34g/t gold from 62 metres.

The Triton orebody will be mined by up-hole benching or through a long-hole, open-stope retreat mining method.

South-Emu Triton is expected to deliver around 300,000 to 330,000 tonnes per annum of ore to the Bluebird processing hub.

Just before the market closed, Westgold was down 1.90 per cent and trading at $1.81 per share at 3:36 pm AEST.
