Matilda Mine

The Matilda Mine encompasses 10km of strike along the highly prospective Coles Shear. The Matilda Mine currently has JORC Resources of 11.1Mt @ 1.6g/t for 569,000 ounces of gold. The historical workings comprise a series of shallow open pits  to an average depth of 50 metres over a strike length of approximately 3.5 kilometres. Gold mineralisation is associated with mafic shear zones and saddle reefs with supergene gold occurring within the zone of oxidation. Mineralisation remains open both along strike and at depth.

Matilda Gold Mine was previously named Mt Wilkinson and was operated by Chevron Exploration Corporation (Chevron) in the late 1980s and by Eon Metals NL (EON) in the early 1990s. Eon Metals ceased production in 1992 due to low gold prices with total combined production (since the 1900’s) of approximately 2.66Mt @ 2.3 g/t gold for 163,000 ounces of gold.

Key Project Points

  • Mining commenced August 2016
  • Only 19km from Wiluna Gold Plant by exisiting haul road
  • Production from seven shallow pits: 2.66 Mt@ 2.31g/t 163,000oz au -1987-1992
  • Mostly oxide material mined from all pits, generally to < 50m - most pits open along strike
  • Historical mining data a basis for feasibility studies
