Precious Metals Reprocessing Opportunities

Key Facts

  • Great Western has two principal mine waste reprocessing opportunities within its claims.
  • On 12 July 2022 Great Western announced that it has signed a non-binding Memorandum of Understanding to create a Joint Venture with an experienced Nevada mining contractor, for processing gold and silver from waste material on its mineral concessions in Nevada. The announcement can be viewed here.

Olympic Gold

At Olympic Gold, three sources of waste material have been identified and are being extensively tested for reprocessing, close to the high-yielding OMCO gold mine where operations ceased during the Second World War:

  • Tailings, to be processed through the contained flotation circuit
  • A stockpile of mined material never previously processed
  • Substantial spoil heaps

Mineral Jackpot

At Mineral Jackpot, Great Western has over 50 spoil heaps left from five adjacent and connected historical mines which produced gold and silver in the late nineteenth/early twentieth century.

The recently upgraded 14 km road to the site will enable a 20-ton dumper truck to load spoil material from this mountainous area.
