Echo’s development strategy for the Yandal Gold Belt is centred on establishing a large, high grade gold resource base by applying modern exploration techniques and smart geology across the existing defined deposits as well as the extensive brownfields and greenfields targets.

Echo has adopted a 3 pillar strategy to develop the Yandal Gold Project.

1. Increase Reserves at Advanced Deposits

Focusing on Julius Gold Project and Orelia Gold Deposit extension

2. Follow-up historical intersections and known gold regions with little exploration (Brownfields Targets)

Little exploration below 70m vertical depth

3. Test conceptual Exploration Targets (Greenfields Targets)

Multiple targets identified by auger geochem completed on structural anomalies known to host mineralisation in the region but have no meaningful drilling

Once a sufficient, high quality Mineral Resource and Reserve base has been achieved Echo will progress to recommissioning of the Bronzewing Processing Hub to as a low-cost option to monetise its reserves.
