The Widgiemooltha district has a long mining history with numerous historic and currently operating gold, nickel and rare metal mines. Despite this long history, considerable exploration potential remains, with significant new discoveries made recently including Invincible (Au) by Gold Fields; Baloo (Au) by S2 Resources, now held by Royal Nickel Corporation; Mandilla (Au) by Anglo Australian Resources; Cassini (Ni) by Mincor Resources, and Sinclair (Cs) by Pioneer Resources.

A comprehensive district scale targeting study has highlighted a number of high quality targets including:
Jindalee is currently planning exploration programs to test these and other targets at Widgiemooltha.
