Category 1: Gold Mines For Sale..Copper Mines For Sale 

  1. near revenue (6 months)  Gold -Northern Territory$45m funding sought. JORC Resource (updated May 2023) : 855k oz at 1.2 g/t Au  at a 0.5 AU g/t cut-off (475k oz Indicated & 380k oz Inferred). Additional JORC Exploration Target of 5.0 to 14.8 Mt at 0.74 to 1.45 g/t Au for 119,000 to 734,000oz Au.  Open pit for 120,000 oz then going UG. With $4m capex, project can be producing gold dore withing 6 months , using the neighbouring CIL mill via toll treating. Longer term, $60m capex  could build a flotation processing plant, which would produce a con. , and would take 18 months to production (still need to obtain processing permit however no cyanide will be used, and permit has not been applied for until funding received).  Granted ML, with three additional EL’s surrounding, covering 66 sq km, with no native title obligations and fully permitted for open pit mining.  Significant potential exists to increase the current Resource and also include surrounding prospects not yet evaluated. Most recent open pit optimisation and mine scheduling has delivered a mine plan for 108koz resulting in a FCF pre tax of +A$113M over a 3 yr period. Total ore mined is 2.8Mt at a strip ratio of 2.5: 1.  Cumulative cost/oz of A$1,296 for the proposed open pit mine
  2. Near-revenue (10 months) Gold, Victoria:$20m funding sought. 2million oz mine with 25k oz JORC Reserves (Resources & Proved Reserves) and moving another 200,000 to JORC Resources in 2023.  Adjacent to Fosterville (and was part of Fosterville), and on same strike as the Swan lode- thus similar geology. AISCtenures (2 granted ML’s, and 6 EPM’s). Can be pouring gold 10 months of funding received. Fully permitted shovel ready, processing plant on site. Comprised of 6 mines (4 oxides, 2 sulfides) and permitted to build 3 plants across CIL (purchased and on site now), VAT leach, and Sulphides.  Grades in mine plan= up to 5g/t (and 3000 g/t found in exploration).  Also has additional revenue from 25,000 t Antimony (1 mt ore @ 2.5% antimony)- as next to Costerfield antimony mine. Has enough land (owned freehold for > 90 years of tailings storage)

An additional 1.5m oz could be moved to JORC in 8 months (and of that, 83k oz already at surface in stockpiles). Last production was at A$784/oz AISC. One of only two gold mines in Tasmania with processing infrastructure. Funds will be used: $6m for plant ( plant is already on site: funding is to finish commisioning / electricals, etc) & $4m working cap. First gold pour could be 9 mnths from funding received. Granted ML’s

All ore under JORC is oxides but with substantial potential for sulfides/ UG.   Existing mill nearby means this project could be producing within 12 months of receiving $10m funding. Strong brownfields opportunity for resource expansion on existing resources.  Existing Management, with extensive mine development and operational experience. 4 granted ML’s, 5 misc. granted leases, 3 EL’s.
  5. Gold/Cobalt/ Tungsten-Qld-Cloncurry: For Sale >$9m A rare package of gold/ cobalt/ tungsten tenures in prime Selwyn ranges, south of Cloncurry, and with toll-treating processing solutions nearby 
    New Hope granted ML 2487, (includes tailings from historical workings, containing gold). Recovery via flotation 91%) JORC Resources (Indicated & Inferred)= 234kt at 5.22g/t Au (for 39k oz Au), 2126ppm Co, and 840ppm W.
    Mt Cobalt granted ML 2732 (gold, cobalt and tungsten),JORC Resources (Indicated & Inferred)= 56kt at 2.86g/t Au (for 5koz Au), 714ppm Co, and 173ppm W.

  6. Near-revenue  Gold- Qld/ 60km SW of Townsville ( and 3km east Far Fanning), For Sale >AUD $2M 3 granted mining leases (all renewed in last 3 years) which cover an area of 128 hectares, and cover a portion of a 10-15km  gold bearing structure along which, opencut mining has already taken place (Far Fanning). No JORC but drill data exists from 9 percussion drill holes in 1981. The mine was last worked in the 1930’s, and 52t of ore is recorded as being mined at an avg grade of 16 g/t, and tailings at 27 g/t.  Exploration: In 1980 Marathon Petroleum Pty Ltd carried out photogeological, orientation geochemical, and soil geochemistry studies, and concluded that the area constituted a prime exploration target, and possibly more interesting than Far Fanning. Despite this, Marathon did not conduct any follow-up work as they regarded Far Fanning (their main target), too small to be mined successfully (but which, in the 43 years since, has been mined successfully).  In 1981, Aberfoyle Exploration Pty Ltd completed mapping & rockchip sampling and put in 9 costeans across the mineralisation. Results calculated that the gossaneous reef zones averaged 7.8 g/t. In 1984, Pegamin Ltd, undertook check of rock chip sampling, obtaining values ranging from 1.3 g/t to 38.2 g/t Au. Processing: Ore can be processed through the existing Blackjack mill nearby, as well as potential for cost savings from co-working with that mine owner. This represents a low-cost entry into gold mining in the historically high-gold grade area between Townsville and Charters Towers
