The Gold Industry Group congratulates its member Bellevue Gold on the successful opening of its remarkable gold mining project in Western Australia.

The Bellevue Gold Project, situated 40km northwest of Leinster in WA’s Goldfields region, was officially opened last month and the Gold Industry Group was proud to be in attendance at the first official gold pour.

Anticipating a production of over 1.8 million ounces of gold across a decade, the project will provide employment to approximately 230 individuals.

Supported by a mineral resource of 3.1 million ounces at 9.9 grams per tonne, the Bellevue Gold Project is poised to emerge as one of Australia’s premier high-grade gold mines.

In attendance at the official opening of the mine, the Minister for Mines and Petroleum the Honourable David Michael stated, “I commend Bellevue Gold for working closely with the Tjiwarl Aboriginal Corporation to deliver mutually beneficial outcomes, and for committing to ongoing engagement.”

“It is also encouraging to see the Bellevue Gold Project aim for net zero emissions as Western Australia’s resources sector will play a key role in the State’s transition to a low carbon economy,” he said.  

Bellevue aims to produce “green gold” through high-grade, low-footprint operations with over 80% renewable energy usage, targeting ‘Net Zero’ emissions by 2026.

This ambition surpasses larger mining entities like Fortescue and BHP, positioning Bellevue as a pioneer in sustainability within the gold mining sector.

By partnering with ABC Refinery, Bellevue hopes to market a premium ‘green’ gold product, potentially attracting environmentally conscious investors and distinguishing itself in the market.

Despite challenges, Bellevue’s zero carbon ambitions could align with the growing demand for sustainable investments and elevate its appeal to younger, ESG-focused investors seeking to align their portfolios with green initiatives.
