Forrestania Gold Project: all the hallmarks of a significant gold project

The Forrestania Gold Project contains an existing Mineral Resource of 5.9Mt at 1.25g/t for 240,000 ounces of gold, classified and reported in accordance with the JORC Code (2012), with the recent Scoping Study indicating both the technical and financial viability of the project. The FGP gold assets include a high grade open pit mined by Sons of Gwalia – formerly Australia’s third-largest gold producer – in the early 2000s.

More about Forrestania Gold Project


Classic tenements cover a total area of 178 km2 collectively in the Eastern Goldfields, Murchison and Fraser Range Provinces of Western Australia and in areas with identified highly anomalous nickel, copper, cobalt, manganese, gold, base metal, and iron targets.
