Plutonic Gold Mine
In Western Australia, the Company has consolidated the Plutonic and Marymia gold projects into a single project.
The Plutonic Gold Mine is located approximately 300 kilometres northeast of Meekatharra in the mid-west region of Western Australia, at the northern end of the world class Eastern Gold Fields Province.
The Project sits on 45 granted mining leases which are all pre-native title with >40 kilometres in strike length along the Plutonic-Marymia Gold Belt, which extends from the Plutonic Gold Mine in the southwest to the Trident deposit in the northeast. Catalyst consolidated the belt in 2023 following the successful acquisition of Vango Mining and the merger with Superior Gold Inc.
Production ore is presently sourced from the Plutonic Main underground mine. Catalyst intends to bring a number of satellite deposits into production during 2024 and 2025. The first of these is expected to be the Trident deposit, a high-grade deposit located to the northeast of the Plutonic operations.
Trident Gold Project
The Trident deposit sits approximately 25km to the north-east of the Plutonic Gold Mine and the planned development in 2024 has been made possible by the recently completed consolidation of the Plutonic Gold Belt. The Trident Definitive Feasibility Study is well progressed and Reserves expected to be released with this study in 2024.
In addition to Trident, a number of other prospects and partially mined deposits will be investigated as future ore sources, including K2 and Salmon.
Despite being in production for over 20 years, many areas within the overall tenement package have not been effectively tested with exploration. Large parts of the tenements have not had any drilling to greater than 100m depth. Deposits such as Trident are not visible in the upper 100m, therefore it is considered extremely prospective to test areas within the key exploration corridors, as shown below.
