The Mary River Project is located approximately 20 km SSW of Halls Creek and is easily accessible via the Great Northern Highway and the Tanami Road. Mary River is approximately 20 km from the Nicolsons processing plant.
The tenement encompasses the majority of the historical Mary River Goldfield which is approximately 15 km long and 3 km wide. The area has a mining history dating back to 1885 with a large number of small-scale hard rock excavations, along with eluvial and alluvial mines having operated during the areas history. Large scale alluvial mining was undertaken as recently as the 1980’s. Despite the long mining history in the area, Mary Creek remains largely un-explored by modern techniques. Few deposits have been drilled, and where drilling has been undertaken, it has been extremely limited.
Pantoro achieved immediate success from its maiden drilling program at the Mary River Gold Project. The Mary River Gold Project is centred around the historic Reform mine located approximately 20 km SSE of the Nicolsons Gold Project. Results from the maiden drilling program were announced to the ASX on 7 August 2018.
