631,000 ounces in 2012

West Wits is exploring existing mineralised reefs on the West Rand that have been the focus for successful gold and uranium mining operations over the last 100 years. The Company has focused on delineating near surface targets, conducive to open cut mining operations.

West Wits has, until this point, primarily concentrated on exploring for near surface gold mineralisation emanating from the Kimberley Reef Group, which straddles the entire Project Area. It is West Wits' belief this Reef Group, whilst being extensively mined at depth, may provide open cut opportunities closer to surface.
