Largest discovery

The site is hailed to be the single largest gold discovery in the Golden State for more than a decade. Gold Road discovered the deposit in the Yamarna greenstone belt back in the year 2013. Two years later it was verified to be a world-class discovery after the company drilled a 1.7 km deep hole with funding from the State Department of Mines and Petroleum’s Exploration Incentive Scheme.

The project has an estimated resource of 155.37 million tonnes with an average grade of 1.32 grams a tonne. It is expected to produce 300,000 ounces of gold each year.

Mining started in November 2018, first ore was mined in January the following year and first gold poured in June.
