Western Australian gold exploration and development company Classic Minerals Limited (ASX:CLZ) has lodged a Mining Lease Application (MLA 74/249 ) at its 100% owned Kat Gap Gold Project covering the current resource at its exploration licences E74/422 and E74/467.

The company has completed the requirements relative to the application for the mining lease, and the application is supported by a mineralisation report and a supporting statement from an independent consultant which substantiate the reasons for mine development.

By way of background, Classic has a Mineral Resource of 8.2 million tonnes at 1.52 g/t for 403,906 ounces of gold with a Scoping Study suggesting both the technical and financial viability of the project.

In late April, the company established a maiden inferred mineral resource estimate of 1 million tonnes at 3 g/t gold for 93,000 ounces at Kat Gap.
