Emerging producers tackle challenges

One of Western Australia’s newest gold miners has dusted itself off after a steep 12-month learning curve to map out some ambitious growth plans.

Blackham Resources heralded first production at its Matilda mine near Wiluna in October last year, with plans to produce up to 71,000 ounces of gold by the end of the 2017 financial year, and 101,000oz in FY18.

However, in the months following its inaugural gold pour, the company faced a number of setbacks, most notably an unusually harsh wet season, which held back operations and forced Blackham to lower its guidance for the year.
