MOUNT MORGAN GOLD-COPPER PROJECT

EPM16057, EPM17105, EPM17163, EPMA17734 & EPMA18366

The Mount Morgan Project is located approximately 40km south west of Rockhampton in Queensland and in close proximity to the world class Mt Morgan Copper-Gold mine. The area is well serviced with key infrastructure with the sealed Burnett Highway traversing the EPM 16057 permit.

In 1886, the Mount Morgan Gold Milling Company was formed to work the Mt Morgan mine. Initially only gold was produced, but copper production began in 1902 following its discovery in the lower workings. The Mount Morgan gold copper deposit has produced more gold than any other deposit in eastern Australia to date, with a total of 50 million tonnes of ore was treated at an average 5.9 g/t of gold and 0.7% copper, yielding approximately 8 million ounces of gold and over 400,000 tonnes of copper.

Historic exploration in the Mount Morgan area has primarily focused on the discovery of a Mount Morgan analogue which has, up until recently, been interpreted by many as a VHMS (massive sulphide) type. Until recent GBM work, no activity targeting intrusion related systems had been completed, nor had there been, thorough examination and interpretation of geophysical datasets or detailed compilation of existing exploration data.

Extensive recent soil sampling over priority targets in the Mount Morgan Project area has upgraded targets at Sandy Creek, Black Range and Smelter Returns where geological data supports the concept of intrusive related mineralisation in this area. GBM has further consolidated its strategic tenement base in the Mount Morgan Region with additional applications being granted during the year.

GBM now holds over 1000 square kilometres in this region in eight exploration permits and applications in the region, previously referred to as the Dee Range Project.

The region remains, without question, one of the most prospective and underexplored exploration areas in Australia today, and the ongoing acquisition of adjacent ground by Goldfields of Australia indicates growing interest in the area by major gold companies.
