Deflector Gold Project – Overview
The Deflector Gold Copper Project (‘Deflector’) is located in the southern Murchison region of WA, 450km north of Perth and 160km east of the Western Australian regional city of Geraldton. It is located 350km from Andy Well. First gold production from the Deflector occurred in May 2016.
Deflector has an initial mine life of six years and significant exploration potential within the under-explored 7km-long ‘Deflector Corridor’.
Deflector shares many similar characteristics to Andy Well, being a shallow, narrow vein, high-grade deposit to be mined by predominately underground methods. The ore is located in three separate lodes being the West, Central and Contact lodes. A fit-for-purpose processing facility was constructed to enable recovery of gold from a gravity circuit prior to the production of a copper/gold concentrate via flotation methods.
Doray is focused on meeting production targets for Deflector, generating strong cash flow to allow rapid debt repayment, and exploring the project area for further deposits.
