Mount Perry Project, Queensland Australia
The Mount Perry project is located 130 km northwest of Gympie, Queensland, and covers an area around 465 square km covering the Mount Perry Goldfield and over 50 historic mines and workings. The Mount Rawdon gold mine (approx. 2 MOz gold) lies 13 km southeast of the Mount Perry project. The Mount Perry land holding contains around 25 old prospects and abandoned mines. Most of these prospects are arrayed along a 20-km-long northeast-trending corridor, extending from the Augustine prospect in the southwest to the New Moonta prospect in the northeast (Figure 5). Mineralization occurs in sulphidised hydrothermal breccias with variable gold, silver and base metals. The principal prospects are Niko’s Reward, Chinamans Creek, New Moonta, Flori, Bania and Augustine.
