Gold Road Resources is pioneering development of Australia's newest goldfield, the Yamarna Belt, 200 kilometres east of Laverton in Western Australia. The Company holds tenements covering ~5000 square kilometres in the region, which is historically underexplored and highly prospective for gold mineralization.
The Gruyere Gold Project was discovered by Gold Road in October 2013 on the South Dorothy Hills Trend, 25 kilometres north-east of the Company's original Yamarna Belt discovery, Central Bore.
Within 10 months of Gruyere's discovery, Gold Road had defined a significant high-grade gold deposit and announced a maiden JORC 2012 Mineral Resource of 96.93 million tonnes grading 1.23 grams of gold per tonne for 3.8 million ounces of contained gold.
"We selected ARMS Reliability because of their proven track record in RAM modelling, and their experience in working on greenfield sites like the Gruyere Gold Project. Undergoing a RAMS study will ensure that this project delivers the most value to our stakeholders.
By getting in early and conducting these maintenance studies now, we will save money and resources down the track by ensuring optimum performance of the plant from the outset. When we hit the 'go live' button, all maintenance costs and schedules will be well defined- We don't want any surprises."
