Tropicana Information

  • Exploration 2015-08-25
    Regional exploration continues to identify and test numerous prospects.In FY2014, total 1,433 AC holes (70,997m), 20 RC holes (3,075m) and seven diamond holes (1,309m) were completed. Encouraging gold assay results from AC drilling at the Lichini Prospect located 90km southwest of Tropicana and at Madras, 25km south of Tropicana, were received. AC drilling at Beetle Juice, located 20km south of Tropicana, returned a significant Ni-Cu-PGE-Au intercept. Though follow-up drilling returned only low level anomalism, the results do highlight the base metal potential of the area. Airborne electromagnetic surveys tested selected areas for conductors possibly representing base metals mineralisation. A ground EM survey commenced in late June 2014 to better define a conductor identified in the airborne survey, the Belvedere Prospect. Results are expected in FY2015 and will be modelled to determine whether follow up drilling is justified.
  • General 2015-05-10
    Tropicana, a joint venture between AngloGold Ashanti (70%), which manages the operation, and Independence Group NL (30%), is Australia's newest gold mine. Tropicana is located 200km east of Sunrise Dam, and 330km east-northeast of Kalgoorlie. Development of this project began following board approval in November 2010. First gold was poured ahead of schedule and within budget in September 2013. Innovation has been incorporated into the design of Tropicana's mining and processing systems, from the start of exploration through to environmental management and closure planning.
