Deflector Gold Copper Project – Overview
The Deflector Gold Copper Mine (‘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 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 is a shallow, narrow vein, high-grade gold and copper underground mine. 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.
Recent exploration has been successful in identifying a potential new discovery north of the Dolerite Dyke in the Deflector ore body. The mineralisation characteristics are similar to the Deflector Western Lode, and work is ongoing to delineate this potential new ore body to add to the mining plans at Deflector.
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.
