Copper Hill – Molong Project

Studies of the Copper Hill project have been completed following a review of various mining and mill throughput tonnage options. A comparative analysis suggested that 8 million tonnes of ore per year, mined, milled and processed to produce a copper-gold concentrate, would deliver the best economic outcome. This model was examined in more detail using a range of metal price, mining and capital cost assumptions. The outcomes are under consideration by the GCR Board.

Oolgelima Hill , Giddinna, Warriner Creek, Codna Hill, Koolymilka, Stuart Range

Golden Cross holds five granted tenements covering 3,166 sq. km within the northern Gawler Craton in South Australia near Coober Pedy, an emerging centre for copper-gold, iron ore and energy developments. The tenements cover several structural domains north of the highly prospective Olympic Domain, which hosts the world -class iron-oxide-copper-gold (IOCG) deposits of Olympic Dam and Carrapateena.
