Apex pours first gold at Wiluna

Following the quicker than expected repair of technical issues, Apex Minerals has celebrated its first gold pour at its Wiluna mine.

The West Perth-based company said today that commissioning issues highlighted a fortnight ago have continued to reduce, with plant throughput achieving designed capacity last week.

Apex acquired the Wiluna mine from Oxiana, now OZ Minerals after its merger with Zinifex, last year for $30 million.

The spot price of gold in London was down $US2.28 to $US835.75 per ounce.

Shares in Apex were down two cents to 36c at 11:54 AEDT.
