Situated in the Eastern Goldfields region, the Agnew Gold Mine site is 23 kilometres west of Leinster, 375 kilometres north of Kalgoorlie and nearly 1,000 kilometres north-east of Perth in Western Australia, Australia. Acquired in 2001, Agnew Gold Mine ... Moreproduces over 250,000 ounces of gold per annum.

Gold is sourced from the two underground operations and processed via a CIP plant. The majority of the nearly 500-strong Agnew workforce lives permanently in Perth and commutes to site on a fly-in/fly-out roster from Leinster.

Mining operations at Agnew currently consist of the Waroonga Underground comprising of the Kim, Main and FBH lodes. The underground workings are accessible from the old Waroonga Pit, via the Kim decline which extends to more than 1,300 meters below the surface. Stopes are mined by mechanised sub-level stoping and backfilled using paste fill, with underground production and development carried out by contract miner Barminco Limited.

Access to the Lawlers underground is via the New Holland and Genesis Pits and mining is predominantly via long-hole stoping of the Sheeba, Genesis and Cinderella lodes.
The Beta Hunt Mine is a low-cost gold mine located in the prolific Kambalda mining district of Australia. RNC (TSX: RNX) has as 100% interest in Salt Lake Mining Pty Ltd ("SLM"), a private company whose main asset is a 100% interest in the Beta Hunt ... MoreMine.

The Beta Hunt Mine, located 600 km from Perth in Kambalda, Western Australia, is a deposit with the very rare feature of hosting both nickel and gold resources in adjacent discrete mineralised zones. The mining tenements on which the Beta Hunt Mine is located are held by Gold Fields Limited (JSE: GFI). SLM operates the Beta Hunt Mine by virtue of a sub-lease agreement with Gold Fields Limited.

The Kambalda mining district in Western Australia is a long-established major mining centre with excellent existing infrastructure, a skilled local workforce, and nickel and gold processing mills nearby. Beta Hunt was originally a core WMC (Western Mining Co) asset discovered in 1966, producing 153,500 tonnes of nickel metal up to 1998. It was sold to Gold Fields Limited in 2001. In 2003, Reliance Mining acquired nickel rights for A$11.7M, developed an operation, and was acquired by Consolidated Minerals for A$76.5M in 2005. Consolidated Minerals placed the mine on care and maintenance at the end of 2008.

The Beta Hunt Mine was acquired by SLM in 2013 for A$10M after securing gold mining rights from Gold Fields Limited. The mine began producing nickel in 2014 and began gold production in November 2015. Currently, RNC is ramping up gold production and nickel production was curtailed in the third quarter of 2018.

The Beta Hunt mine is situated within the central portion of the Norseman-Wiluna greenstone belt in a sequence of mafic/ultramafic and felsic rocks on the southwest flank of the Kambalda Dome. Nickel mineralization is hosted mainly by talc-carbonate and serpentine altered ultramafic rocks and is typically pyrrhotite-pentlandite-pyrite+- chalcopyrite. Gold mineralization occurs mainly in the Lunnon Basalt, which is the footwall to the nickel-bearing ultramafics, and is characterized by intense albite, carbonate and chlorite alteration, with a halo of biotite/pyrite alteration.

Beta Hunt is owner operated using conventional underground mining methods. All processing is conducted under tolling contracts with local processing plants.
