Pantoro is an Australian gold producer with its 100% owned Halls Creek Gold Project in the Kimberley Region of Western Australia being the key operational focus. The project provides the company with a platform for growth through the operation of its first producing gold asset, which includes underground and open pit mines, and a modern CIP processing facility.
The Halls Creek Project includes the Nicolsons and Wagtail Mines, (35 km south west of Halls Creek) and a pipeline of exploration and development prospects located south-west of Halls Creek in the Kimberley Region of Western Australia including the Grants Creek and Mary River Projects.
Pantoro acquired the project during April 2014, and took possession of the site in May 2014 enacting its rapid development plan for the project. First production was achieved at Nicolsons in the September 2015 quarter. The mine was developed with a strategy to minimise pre-production capital and to aggressively grow production and the mine Mineral Resource base utilising early cashflows. The growth phase of the operation is now well underway.
The project currently has a stated Mineral Resource of 393,000 ounces of gold as of May 31 2018. The company continues to invest heavily in exploration, with high grade gold intersections returned over 400 m below surface.
