Republic Gold will investigate geological provinces which it believes are prospective for Fosterville-style and refractory gold mineralisation. Kelly and Roberts have in excess of 20 years of combined experience with the Fosterville Goldfield.

Hodgkinson Basin

The Hodgkinson Basin lies in Far North Queensland, stretching from the south of Herberton northwards to Cooktown and approximately 150 kilometers inland from the coast. In the opinion of John Kelly and Chris Roberts, the geological setting of the central Hodgkinson Basin is very similar to Central Victoria. Most of the alluvial gold mined in the Hodgkinson Basin is thought to have been sourced from quartz reefs. The Hodgkinson Basin has two main goldfields: the Palmer River Goldfield in the northwest, and the Hodgkinson Goldfield in the southeast. Read more

Lucky Draw (EL 5777)

Republic Gold and Marlborough Resources NL have finalised an agreement whereby Marlborough's 75% share of its Lucky Draw tenement, located south of Bathurst in New South Wales, would become part of the portfolio to be explored and developed by Republic Gold. Of the resources in and around Lucky Draw, up to approximately 30,600 ounces is in the tailings from the Lucky Draw Mine. EL 5777 covers 173 square kilometres and holds two areas of mineralisation, one gold and the other copper. Of these two, the most important for the Company is the indicated and inferred resource of approximately 107,100 ounces of gold. Read more
