Gateway Mining holds interests in approximately 150km2 of tenements in the Gidgee area, located 600km northeast of Perth. These tenements are located over the Gum Creek Greenstone Belt and are considered prospective for gold and copper.
Historically the Gidgee area has produced around 1.5million ournces of gold, including production from shallow oxide open pits within the Company’s Airport Central tenements. To date Gateway has enjoyed exploration success in the project area, predominantly on shallow gold targets which was the original focus by Gateway.
The discovery of The Cup copper mineralisation changed the focus of Gateway from a gold explorer to base metals. Additional indentification of the Gossans Galore and Gravel Pit areas has confirmed the area’s prospectivity for Volcanogenic Massive Sulphide (VMS) deposits.
