The Burbanks Project is located 9km southeast of Coolgardie, Western Australia. The Project includes the Burbanks Mining Centre and over 5km of the highly prospective Burbanks Shear Zone, historically the most significant gold producing structure within the Coolgardie Goldfield.
The Burbanks Mining Centre comprises the Birthday Gift and Main Lode Gold Mines (Figures 1 & 2). The recorded historic underground production at Burbanks (1885-1961) totalled 444,600t at 22.7 g/t Au for 324,479oz predominantly from above 140m below the surface. Intermittent open pit and underground mining campaigns between the early 1980’s to present day has seen total production from the Burbanks Mining Centre now exceed 420,000oz.
