Vista Gold Australia invites the Katherine local community to come say hello to staff from the Mt Todd Gold Mine project at the Katherine Show tomorrow and Saturday.
Ray Iacono, Vista Gold Australia Director said that the Show provided a great opportunity for the company to keep in contact with the community.
“We welcome people from Katherine and beyond to visit our stall at the Show for an update on the project.
Both the Environmental and Site Managers will be available to talk to the community and answer questions on the progress of the project to date,” he said.
Vista Gold recently announced that the company had revised the scope of the Feasibility Study on the Mt Todd gold project to incorporate a larger processing facility, a redesigned open pit and plans to recover gold from the existing heap leach pads.
The Company is now targeting the release of the Feasibility Study in late 2012 or early 2013.
“If you have ever wondered what the gold actually looks like in the ground, come and have a look at our display. Our mining experts will have a drilling core sample on show and be able to answer questions of how the gold is processed,” Mr Iacono said.
“Community sentiment has been very supportive of reopening the mine, it is very important to us to stay in contact with the community so that we have a clear understanding of the issues that are matter to them.”
Vista Gold’s Mt Todd display will be located in the Commercial Building at the Katherine Show.
