Promising gold-copper exploration in the Paterson Province
The Paterson Province is emerging as one of the most exciting gold-copper exploration plays in Australia this year. A number of companies, including Greatland Gold (the only AIM-listed explorer in the region), have recently announced gold/copper discoveries. The Great Sandy Desert covers much of the area, and sand cover and the lack of rock outcrops means that the region has been relatively underexplored, notwithstanding the fact that the area contains the huge Telfer gold mine. Drilling at Greatland’s Havieron prospect has yielded extremely encouraging gold and copper intersections, and visible gold has been found in surface samples at Black Hills.
