Integra Mining joins 100,000 ounces of gold production club

Integra Mining (ASX: IGR) achieved a gold production milestone of 100,000 ounces in early January at its Randalls Gold Project located 60-130 kilometres east of Kalgoorlie in Australia’s most prolific goldfield.

First gold was poured from the project in September 2010 and Integra ramped up to first commercial production in March 2011.

Managing director Chris Cairns said another significant milestone has been achieved by Integra’s operations people.

“This follows on from having been voted the Gold Mining Journal’s ‘Gold Miner of the Year’ for 2011. It is great to see the site based personnel receiving the well-deserved recognition of their industry peers,” he said.

Integra continues to unleash the potential of the Randalls project with assays last week from follow up diamond drilling at the Imperial prospect returning high grade gold-copper intersections including 6.2 metres at 13.43 grams per tonne (g/t) gold and 1.5% copper.

Highlights also included an interval of 2 metres at 31.1g/t gold and 1.3% copper.

Mineralisation at the prospect is open along strike to the north where shallow WMC-era reverse circulation drilling intercepted 2 metres at 1.8g/t from 52 metres, and to the south where there is no reverse circulation drilling for some 200 metres.

Randalls has a JORC Resource of 30 million tonnes at 2.6g/t for 2.5 million ounces of contained gold.
