Golden Age

The Golden Age ore body contains 1.4Mt @ 4.3g/t Au for 191,000oz.  Golden Age is a  high grade free-milling quartz vein within the Golden Age Dolerite of the Wiluna Greenstone Belt. There is a strong base metal signature with galena, chalcopyrite, sphalerite and pyrite being commonly associated with higher gold grades, however gold is not associated with the sulphides as with the main Wiluna style mineralisation.

Golden Age is one of many parallel quartz veins Au deposits that are cross-cut by the Wiluna Fault Systems. .  The quartz vein system extends for a strike length of 15kms, and is largely unexplored at depths below 50m.

Golden Age is accessed via the Bulletin decline and has mining infrastructure in place and good geotechnical conditions to allow easy re-entry to this area of the mine.
