  Uploaded - 4th September 2011

Mount Gibson Gold Mine is managed by Legend Mining Limited and is currently in care and maintenance.  Mt Gibson started life as a gold mining operation in 1986 following the discovery of gold in outcropping laterite (ironstone). Mining was conducted until 1998, with 95% of ore coming from 14 open pits. The operation produced 870,000 ounces of gold from 16.5Mt of ore at an average grade of 1.68 grams per tonne (g/t). The current gold Mineral Resource (Indicated and Inferred) is 8,754,000 tonnes at an estimated grade of 1.98 g/t gold (559,000 ounces of gold). This resource is not economic at the current gold price. An extensive rehabilitation programme involving the decommissioning of the plant/mill infrastructure is currently being undertaken with a view to reducing environmental bonds.   The bare strip has a windsock in real life and I have added the tyres for clarity.
