Mawson West Chief Executive Bruce McFadzean said:
“Further de-risking and expanding the Kapulo resources have been a major priority for the Mawson West exploration team this year and we can now see the results of that work coming to fruition. An extended life at Kapulo will underwrite the future of Mawson West when the mine is commissioned in 2014.”
