Myrtleford Property

About the property

The Myrtleford Project is a granted exploration license located  in northeastern Victoria, approximately 290 km northeast of the state capital of Melbourne and approximately 40 km south of the Victoria – New South Wales border cities of Albury-Wodonga. The license consists of a single contiguous parcel covering 418km².

The Exploration License lies within a northwest-trending belt of alluvial and hard rock gold mines that collectively produced 6.3 Moz* in the past, mostly from alluvial mining, but also from hard rock production.

Myrtleford represents the consolidation of an entire historic gold camp with over 70 past producing gold mines on the property, where the bulk of historic mining stopped at the water table.


Permit hosts over 70 past producing
high grade artisanal underground gold mines with grades often greater than 31 g/t Au*


Large alluvial district with
historic production of >5Moz* 


Vast majority of historic mining and
exploration terminated at the water-table due to a lack of capital*


Unique proposition – district scale consolidation of historic gold mining camp which hasn’t seen holistic, modern exploration approach

Map of Myrtleford Trends & Target Areas

Gold Camp Consolidation


License consolidates a strategic land package and encapsulates the majority of the prospective mineralized structural trends and areas with hard rock production potential


Majority of historical hard rock mining activities were limited to the depth of water table – historical production consisted of artisanal small mining claims


Numerous trends defined by historical mining activities – these trends have not been tested with modern mineral exploration methods


Large structural trends, hosting high grade historical mines, not systematically explored to date – unique opportunity in a tier-1 jurisdiction

Cross Section at Happy Valley Target


Historical cross section showing the Old Happy Valley, New Happy Valley, Christmas and the Porepunkah reefs


Shallow historical drilling demonstrated continuity of grade at depth


The setting of four high-grade reefs, in close proximity to each other, is a compelling drill target
