The Company is a mineral exploration and development company focussed on gold and other precious metals discoveries in Western Australia. The Company’s projects comprise the Mt Monger Gold Project and the East Laverton Gold Project. The general location of these Projects in the Eastern Goldfields region of Western Australia.
The Mt Monger Gold Project is centred approximately 50km east-northeast of Kambalda and 70km to the southeast of Kalgoorlie-Boulder, within the Goldfields Region of Western Australia. The project comprises Exploration Licences and Prospecting Licences covering an area of approximately ~100km2. The Mt Monger region has proven potential for hosting gold, with gold mining commencing in the area during the late 1890s and continuing to the present day. Silver Lake Resources Ltd’s (ASX: SLR) is currently operating the 1.2Mtpa Randalls gold processing facility which is located within one kilometre of the project tenure.
Early exploration within the project area focused on nickel sulphide mineralisation with the focus shifting to gold exploration during the 1980s. Exploration to date has outlined a number of advanced gold prospects; including the Duchess of York, Hickman’s Find and Kiaki Soaks prospects. Historical drilling at the Duchess of York Prospect has outlined significant mineralisation. The recent “Burns” project discovery by Lefroy Resources (ASX:LEX) with a drill result of 60m @ 5g/t Au & 0.35% Cu, 5km from Mt Monger’s tenements, has put renewed exploration focus on the area.
The East Laverton Gold & Rear Earth Project is centred 70km south-east of the townsite of Laverton and is comprised of 12 Exploration Licences covering an area of approximately ~3,000km2. Due to the area’s extensive sedimentary cover, there has been little geological work in the area either by exploration companies or government geological surveys, hampering the geological understanding of the area. Diamond exploration targeting kimberlite pipes at the Seahorse Prospect encountered gneissic rocks similar to those from the Tropicana Gold Mine (which is held by AngloGold Ashanti Ltd and Independence Group NL Joint Venture).
