keep up to date with the latest news

Go to the Victoria State Government website ( and type ‘mining licences’ into the search box and you are presented with an aerial map showing exploration licences in blue.  In 2020 the amount of blue is consolidating into one solid mass, and it’s no surprise quality exploration ground available for direct licence application is equivalent to finding the proverbial needle in a Victoria state haystack.

Chief Executive Craig Brown is confident the applications will be successful, and exploration will begin early 2021 – another step in securing the company’s ambition of delivering the next multi-million ounce gold resource in Australia.
