Paroo Station is located in Western Australia, approximately 30 kilometers ("km") west of the town of Wiluna (pop. 200) and 750 km northeast of Perth. An all-weather paved airstrip located 4 km south of Wiluna facilitates access for personnel via charter and other commercial flights from Perth.The deposits are fairly flat-lying, occurring on subtle topographic highs. Ore at Paroo Station is extracted via drilling and blasting from a series of open pits on Magellan Hill. Excavators are then used to dig and load ore and waste into 85 tonne haulage trucks. Ore is mined concurrently from a number of faces to provide a homogeneous blend to the concentrator and ore is stockpiled and further blended on the Run of Mine ("ROM") pad. Grade control is enhanced by testing every blasthole using a hand-held x-ray fluorescence ("XRF") analyzer for lead content.
