McPhillamys Gold Project
The 100% Regis-owned McPhillamys Gold Project is one of Australia’s larger undeveloped open-pittable gold resources. The Project is located approximately 250 kilometres west of Sydney in the established mining region of Central Western NSW. In 2019, the Company announced an updated Ore Reserve of 60.8 million tonnes at 1.04g/t for 2.02 million ounces.

In 2019, the Company submitted a State Significant Development Application (SSDA) and Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) for the McPhillamys Gold Project, to the NSW Department of Planning, Industry and Environment (DPIE).
The assessment of the project is well underway with the Company lodging a Submissions Report (SR) and Project Amendment Report (AR) with the NSW Department of Planning, Industry and Environment (DPIE), in September 2020.
While the Development Application progresses, the Project team is continuing with a range of activities including:
- Consultation and negotiation with neighbours and other local stakeholders;
- Progressing options for the supply of water and power to the site; and
- Developing the Definitive Feasibility Study (DFS) which will incorporate the requirements for the project development arising from the assessment/approvals process.
Regis expects a decision on the Development Application would be made during 2021.
