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 Limited; Baloo (Au) by S2 Resources, now held by Royal Nickel Corporation; Cassini (Ni) by Mincor Resources NL, and Sinclair (Cs) by Pioneer Resources Limited.
A significant ground position has been built over the last three years in this premier mining district. Holding costs remain minimal with most tenements still in application (Jindalee is the sole applicant in almost all cases). A comprehensive district scale targeting study focusing on the Chalice Greenstone belt has been initiated with results to be reported when available. Available ground in this highly prospective district is very limited and options for realising the value in Jindalee’s tenement package continue to be tested.
