Su­pe­rior Gold starts min­ing gold at Her­mes

Stockwatch Daily - - MINES & METALS - Mr. Chris Brad­brook re­ports

SU­PE­RIOR GOLD Inc. has com­menced min­ing of gold min­er­al­iza­tion at its 100per-cen­towned Her­mes de­vel­op­ment project, which is lo­cated ap­prox­i­mately 65 kilo­me­tres south­west of the com­pany’s 100-per-cent-owned Plu­tonic gold mine in Western Australia.

As pre­vi­ously an­nounced, the first pre­strip­ping ac­tiv­i­ties at Her­mes were ini­ti­ated on Oct. 12, 2017. The first blast was the start of the Trap­per pit, which, along with two other pits, Klinger and Hawk­eye, will sup­ply ini­tial pro­duc­tion from Her­mes. Since that time, work has ex­panded to all three pits and pre­strip­ping ac­tiv­i­ties have pro­gressed suf­fi­ciently to per­mit stock­pil­ing of the ini­tial gold min­er­al­iza­tion at the site. Pro­cess­ing of the first gold min­er­al­iza­tion from Her­mes is ex­pected by year-end with the achieve­ment of com­mer­cial pro­duc­tion an­tic­i­pated in the first quar­ter of 2018.

The Her­mes de­posit will be mined as a con­ven­tional open-pit oper­a­tion. Mined ma­te­rial will be trans­ported by truck along a 65-kilo­me­tre haul road to the Plu­tonic gold mine where it will be pro­cessed.

Drone video footage show­ing the com­ple­tion of the com­mu­ni­ca­tions tower at the Her­mes site can be viewed on the com­pany’s web­site. Min-

ing ac­tiv­i­ties at Her­mes can also be clearly seen in the video.

Chris Brad­brook, pres­i­dent and chief ex­ec­u­tive of­fi­cer of Su­pe­rior Gold, stated: “This is yet an­other im­por­tant mile­stone in the evo­lu­tion of the com­pany. We con­tinue to progress de­vel­op­ment work at Her­mes, our sec­ond oper­a­tion, on sched­ule. The con­tri­bu­tion of the ore from Her­mes is an­tic­i­pated to al­low us to reach our ob­jec­tive of in­creas­ing an­nual pro­duc­tion to 100,000 ounces of gold.”
