Warrawoona Gold Project, Pilbara – Opportunity for significant near-term production increase



Calidus Resources Limited (ASX:CAI) is pleased to announce that initial studies have identified a significant opportunity to increase near-term production by mining the Blue Bar Gold Project near Warrawoona.

Blue Bar, which is part of the recently announced Haoma Joint Venture (Haoma JV) (CAI 60%: Haoma 40%), was a priority for Calidus due to its proximity to Warrawoona and potential to supply immediate ore to Warrawoona by processing stockpiles and rapid resumption mining operations due to existing permits.

A review of historical exploration has also identified the potential for additional parallel and down-plunge mineralisation that could provide accretive incremental production ounces at Warrawoona.

Review of nearby Blue Bar deposit reveals potential for mining to start quickly and considerable exploration potential.



• Blue Bar is part of the recently formed Haoma JV that aims to unlock value of
regional deposits by leveraging existing infrastructure at Warrawoona
o Located on a granted Mining Lease and within trucking distance of the
Warrawoona Mill (c.22km)
• An extensive review of historical exploration at Blue Bar identified multiple
significant intercepts demonstrating potential for a shallow, high-grade satellite
deposit amenable to open pit mining. Select intercepts include:
o 38m at 6.36 g/t Au from 1m incl. 12m at 17.9 g/t Au from 24m (BBR54RC)
o 15m at 10.91g/t Au from 27m incl. 3m at 8.75 g/t Au from 28m and 6m at
20.8 g/t Au from 35m (BBR2RC)
o 25m at 5.77 g/t Au from 22m incl. 2m at 15.6 g/t Au from 30m and 4m at
19.6 g/t Au from 34m (BB21RC)
• Maiden Inferred JORC 2012 resource at Blue Bar of 230,000t @ 2.5g/t Au for
• Surveys and sampling show existing stockpiles contain ~10,000t @ 1.5g/t
• Calidus believes the deposit has exploration upside in a recently discovered
parallel system and is open down-plunge
• Metallurgical testwork underway, initial results show excellent recovery
through cyanide leach.



Calidus Managing Director Dave Reeves said:

“Although the smallest of the projects under JV with Haoma, Blue Bar was the first project we studied because it has existing stockpiles of ore-grade material and the potential for a rapid resumption of mining. “It is also close to Warrawoona.


“Due to its high grades, Blue Bar could potentially provide a meaningful lift in production at Warrawoona in the foreseeable future. Work is now focussing on permitting and confirmatory drilling.


“We have employed additional geologists to commence on the larger projects, including North Pole and Bamboo Creek, and will provide updates on those projects on a case-by-case basis as they become available”.
