Development mining and processing
NST has two production initiatives, a $1.5bn mill expansion at the Kalgoorlie Super Pit, near Kalgoorie, WA and an acquisition of additional resources feed for Jundee, within its Yandal Production Centre, also in WA, just north of Kalgoorlie. By FY26 total gold production will be 2m ounces a year, compared with close to 1.6m ounces this year, which also includes its Pogo mine in Alaska, US.
The mill expansion will take three years and more than double processing capacity to 27m tonnes a year. The super pit is one of the world’s largest gold mines with a Mineral Resource of 28.3m ounces, an ore reserve of 12.2m ounces and a 20 year mine life. This will lead to a material increase in cash flow, resulting in more dividends.
The expanded processing rate of 27m tonnes a year will comprise 6-10m tonnes a year from the open pit (Super Pit), 4-8m tonnes a year from the Mt Charlotte underground and 8-10m tonnes a year from previously stockpiled ore inventory comprising 120m tonnes at 0.7g/t.
Northern Star Resources
Northern Star Resources has also entered into agreements to buy the Melrose Gold Project, an exploration asset, from Strickland Resources (ASX: STK), located 40km east of Jundee.
Melrose will provide a supplementary low-cost, high-grade feed source for the Jundee mill, with a mineral resource of 346k ounce gold at a grade of 1.8 grams per tonne
