The Kalgoorlie Project consists of three tenement groups – Gidji, Ninga Mia and Boorara. Gidji and Ninga Mia lie within 10 km to the north of Kalgoorlie, while Boorara is located around 20 km to the southeast of Kalgoorlie. There are seven tenements in total, covering an area of around 15 km².
Geological reinterpretation and targeting at Ninga Mia project is progressing.
- Reinterpretation of subsurface geology is defining new targets where faults that control gold mineralisation at the Mt Charlotte gold mine propagate into KalGold’s Ninga Mia tenure.
- New targets at the intersections of these structures with porphyries, late-stage conglomerates and other faults are being investigated and do not appear to have been drill tested previously.
There are no recorded mining activities on any of these tenements, however a site visit by Cube noted historical workings. The closest modern activities to Gidji and Ninga Mia being Kalgoorlie Consolidated Gold Mines (KCGM) operations and for Boorara the Golden Ridge deposit.
All groups are considered to be within the Boorara Domain of the greater Kalgoorlie Terrane. The Gidji and Ninga Mia Groups are dominated by the Black Flag Beds, while Boorara mainly consists of ultramafics.
There are no recorded mineralisation occurrences within the tenements. Eight Mile Dam and Runway prospects lie just to the north of Gidji, with the later containing a current MRE. Just to the west of Ninga Mia lies the Two-Up project which contains a mineral inventory.
Due to the proximity of Kalgoorlie the Gidji and Ninga Mia Groups have a long exploration history. Pancontinental Mining (and its later entities) conducted the most detailed exploration of all the companies. Pancontinental Mining carried out extensive soil sampling, regolith drilling and follow up deeper drilling on defined anomalies. Generally, the results were disappointing and as a result the ground was dropped. The most recent detailed exploration was completed by KCGM. Various types of drilling did not return any significant results worth following up and the ground was dropped.
The Boorara Group tenements have been covered by wide spaced soil auger. Results were generally disappointing, but no deeper drilling has been carried out and hence the potential has not been fully tested.
The Runway deposit, which has a defined MRE, is located only 500 m north of the Gidji tenement, hence southern extensions along this structure into the KalGold tenement is a possibility. Although results of drilling within the Ninga Mia Group has been disappointing, the spacing and depth of these holes has not adequately tested the potential for southern extensions of the Eight Mile and Two-Up into these tenements.
