Maximus is an innovative, energetic and professional mineral exploration and development team, with an Australian focus on a small suite of strategic commodities, with extensive tenement holdings in Western Australia.
Maximus 51% up to 100%
In August 2015, Maximus signed a Farm-in Agreement with ASX listed Tychean Resources Ltd (TYK) to secure up to 90% of the Spargoville Gold Project. Spargoville is located 70 kilometres south of the regional mining centre of Kalgoorlie in Western Australia’s Eastern Goldfields.Maximus Resources acquired an initial 25% interest in the substantial exploration tenement package consisting of 27 granted mining leases, two granted exploration licences, five prospecting licences and two miscellaneous licences. The total exploration area is 11,440 ha.
In November 2015, Maximus achieved the Stage 1 earn-in commitment (further $200,000 exploration expenditure), increasing equity in the tenement package to 51% of TYK’s gold rights and various nickel rights over the tenements. Maximus continues to invest in exploration to achieve the Stage 2 earn-in milestone and achieve 90% equity in the TYK interest in the tenements. TYK retains 10% equity through to a decision to mine at which point it can contribute to ongoing costs, or dilute to a NSR royalty. Nickel rights on 10 tenements are held by a third party.
Gold has been mined in the Spargoville Region for over 70 years and yet despite its close proximity and ease of access to the major gold mining centres of Coolgardie, Kalgoorlie and Kambalda, it remains one of the under explored belts in the Western Australian Goldfields. Much of the historical exploration has been fragmented and quite cursory.
