23/04 - Bendigo gold processing plans still on Unity agenda

A mining company says plans to process gold in Bendigo are still on the table, if it can secure regulatory approval.

Unity Mining wants to use its plant at Kangaroo Flat to process gold it hopes to mine at Dargues, near Canberra.

However, the project relies on the development of the Dargue mine, which has been in a temporary halt since last year.

Unity's latest quarterly report says it is still carrying out technical studies and cost reduction programs for Dargues.

It also says a key element of the site's future is finding the best way of processing material from the site.

It has told shareholders it is seeking clarification from Victorian regulatory authorities before it decides whether to truck ore to Bendigo or to pursue another option.

Unity says while the delays are frustrating, it is confident of Dargues's future.
