The Burbanks Project is centred 9km southeast from Coolgardie. The project covers the Burbanks Mining Centre and over 5km of the Burbanks Shear Zone, the most significant gold producing structure within the Coolgardie Goldfield.
The Burbanks Mining Centre comprises the historic underground Birthday Gift Mine (encompassing Lady Robinson, Christmas, East and Tom’s Pits) and the underground Main Lode Mine 900m to the north. Production from historical underground and modern open-pit/underground operations has exceeded 400,000oz of gold, predominantly from above 140m below the surface.
Historically, Birthday Gift, grading 27.4 g/t Au, represents one of the richest goldmines in the Eastern Goldfields of Western Australia. Within the project area are over 20 small historical mines ranging from 50 tonne to 3,500 tonne production were all very high-grade, emphasizing the high-grade nature of gold mineralisation associated with the Burbanks Shear Zone.
