King of the Hills - Underground Mine
Red 5’s 100%-owned King of the Hills Gold Mine is located 80km south of the Company’s Darlot Gold Mine and 28km north of the town of Leonora in the Eastern Goldfields region of Western Australia.
Mining at King of the Hills is currently undertaken through a combination of bulk underground stoping and airleg mining of selective high-grade gold veins.
Ore production from King of the Hills Underground currently averages approximately 500,000 tonnes per annum, with ore trucked from King of the Hills to Red 5’s nearby Darlot Processing Plant.
In addition to the current underground mining operation, Red 5 is also undertaking a Final Feasibility Study for a stand-alone bulk open pit and underground mining and processing operation at King of the Hills. Read more about the King of the Hills Development Project.
