18 Jun The Bellevue Gold Project
The Bellevue Gold Project (Draig 100%) A Forgotten Treasure.
The Bellevue Gold Project is 400km north west of Kalgoorlie in Western Australia and sits within a high-grade gold and nickel district on the prolific Wiluna-Norsman gold belt. Bellevue is within 100km of numerous producing goldmines and in close proximity to world-class nickel mines.
Historic Bellevue Gold Mine was one of Australia’s highest grade gold mines producing around 800,000oz @ 15g/t gold. Having reviewed the exploration potential of the project, Draig believes Bellevue will provide a significant opportunity to apply modern exploration techniques to a historically significant Western Australian gold mine that is poorly understood and under-explored.
Bellevue Gold Project is one of the last areas on the Wiluna Belt to be systematically explored in recent times. Draig has identified multiple high priority targets for testing throughout 2017 and into 2018. The first drill program has started and will be followed by ongoing exploration drilling news flow.
Multiple high priority targets for testing include:
- High grade extension of the historic Bellevue underground mine
- Potential high grade offset mineralization
- Targeting unexplored areas along strike and under lake cover typical in Western Australia
- Evaluation the tailings and waste dump potential from the historic high grade mine
Bellevue is close to excellent infrastructure including grid power, flights via Leinster (40km), sealed roads, water and services at Leinster, Leonora and Wiluna townships.
