A High Grade Australian Gold Producer
Pantoro is an Australian gold producer with its 100% owned Halls Creek Gold Project in the Kimberley Region of Western Australia being the key operational focus. The project provides the company with a platform for growth through the operation of its first producing gold asset, which includes underground and open pit mines, and a modern CIP processing facility.
The Nicolsons Project is Pantoro’s flagship operation. The Project is underpinned by the high grade Nicolsons Underground Mine with the second underground mine, Wagtail, under active development. Nicolsons has been producing gold since September 2015.
Norseman Gold Project
50% Share in the World-Class Central Norseman Gold Project
Pantoro owns a 50% interest in the Central Norseman Gold Project (CNGP) which contains a current JORC compliant Mineral Resource of 4.4 million ounces of gold.
The CNGP is owned as an unincorporated joint venture (UJV) with Central Norseman Gold Corporation Pty Ltd. Pantoro has management control under the UJV.
CNGP is amongst the highest grade goldfields mined in Australia with historic production exceeding 5.5 million ounces of gold since discovery in 1894.
CNGP includes a tenement package covering approximately 70 km of strike along the highly productive CNGP- Wiluna greenstone belt and currently has approximately 35 separate Mineral Resources modelled. A number of the Mineral Resources are near-development ready and initial works are to be focused on transition to production as soon as possible.
Originally one of Western Mining’s key gold production regions from 1935 until 2002, the CNGP was divested along with the remainder of Western Mining’s gold division around that time. Little systematic exploration has been undertaken since the late 1990’s.
Much of the CNGP tenure lies under Lake Cowan where historical exploration is limited. The CNGP is considered to be highly prospective for discovery of multiple +1 million ounce deposits.
Nicolsons Regional Projects
Pantoro has a portfolio of regional exploration targets located near the Nicolsons Project, approximately 45 km southwest of Halls Creek in Western Australia. The regional exploration targets represent extenstional expansion opportunities close to the Nicolsons project infrastructure. Initial exploration undertaken at a number of these regional targets has produced encouraging results.
Mary River Project
The Mary River Project is located approximately 20 km SSW of Halls Creek and is easily accessible via the Great Northern Highway and the Tanami Road. Mary River is approximately 20 km from the Nicolsons processing plant.
The Grants Creek Project is located approximately 60 km north of Halls Creek and includes a number of advanced prospects with first mining recorded during the 1880’s. Grants Creek has a large amount of historical drilling recorded, and Pantoro believes that there is strong potential to rapidly define a JORC compliant Mineral Resource.
The Garaina Project is Pantoro’s main exploration target in PNG, located 100 km southeast of the Hidden Valley Mine and Wau Town, in the Morobe province, covering an area of approximately 380 km2. The tenement area covers the suture zone between the Owen Stanley Metamorphic thrust to the west and the Papuan Ultramafic to the east. Most of the EL is underlain by the Owen Stanley metamorphic complex, which is common to the majority of the known major mineral deposits in PNG.
