Australia’s largest gold producer, Newcrest Mining (ASX: NCM), has committed to sole fund all of the 2019 exploration programs with junior Encounter Resources (ASX: ENR), covering the highly sought after gold regions of Tanami and West Arunta in Western Australia, wrote the Mining newly.

Newcrest, which has five joint ventures (JVs) with Encounter in the area, covering a total of 5,900 km2, will have the right to increase its interest in each JV to 80 per cent should the Sydney-based partner not elect to contribute on a 50:50 basis by sole funding exploration and delivering over one million ounces of gold.

The hunt is on for the next game-changing gold discovery in Australia

Encounter's managing director, Will Robinson, said the exploration boost provided by Newcrest would test several well-defined, advanced targets this year.

“The hunt is on for the next game-changing gold discovery in Australia,” he said to The Mining.

 

The property lies in the famous Cobalt province and is approximately 47 km south of the town of Cobalt. The picture shows an old mine in the town of Cobalt. In the early 1900s, the area was heavily mined for silver; the silver ore also contained cobalt. By 1910, the community was the fourth highest producer of silver in the world. Mining declined significantly by the 1930s, together with the local population. In late 2017 one publication referred to Cobalt as a ghost town, but the high demand for cobalt, used in making batteries for mobile devices and electric vehicles, is leading to great interest in the area among mining companies.
