In particular, the ball mill and gravity circuit are now operational.

Production guidance for 2019 remains at 75,000-100,000oz ounces, with cost guidance to be reviewed when commercial production is declared. Commercial Production is anticipated mid‐way through the six to seven-month ramp‐up period.

Several minor improvements to the operability of the circuit were made during a plant shutdown for the tie-in of the ball mill. All components of the process circuit are now substantially complete and operational.

Gruyere, which is located approximately 200km east of Laverton in Western Australia, is a global Tier 1 gold mine with a long operating life and forecast high margins. Life‐of‐mine average annual production is forecast at approximately 300,000oz/y.
