In 2019, WIM excavated a test pit at the proposed mine site near Dooen. In late 2019, a demonstrat­ion scale processing plant was constructe­d on site and over approximat­ely six months, WIM processed a large sample of ore. The trials were very successful in demonstrat­ing that the Avonbank Project ore body can be mined using standard equipment and using standard wet gravity processing.

In early 2021, WIM rehabilita­ted the test pit. A crop was seeded over the test pit area by a local landholder as part of their regular cropping program. Longerenon­g College Students continue their research efforts at the test pit site, under a partnershi­p with WIM and WIM continues with a range of other studies on the site.
