The Comet Vale project.

The work marks the start of Comet Vale's 27-month mine plan, which will be carried out and controlled by GBF.

Under the mine plan the decline will descend through the completed open pit to the 6th level around 200m below surface, to provide access for stope development.

Moving Comet Vale to production is a key component of Orminex' Mineral Ventures model, which sources, funds and mines high-grade gold projects.

Comet Vale's ore will be processed at the Burbanks mill 150km away, under a toll milling agreement signed between GBF and mill owner Eastern Goldfields Milling.
