Mercator Gold - Australian Gold Exploration

  Mercator's principal interest is in Australian Gold Exploration at The Meekatharra Properties, an area comprising 1,020 sq km of tenements (468 sq km of granted tenements and 552 sq km of tenements in application) in the prospective Meekatharra greenstone region of the Murchison Goldfields district of Western Australia, between Tuckanarra in the south to an area north of Meekatharra known as Maid Marion.

  The Murchison district has historically been one of the major gold producing provinces within the Archean Yilgarn Craton of Western Australia with gold production estimated at approx 12 million ounces. This is inclusive of the gold mines of Mt Magnet, Big Bell and Cue as well as those at Meekatharra.
 

The tenements covered in the Meekatharra Properties have historically produced more than 1.5 million ounces of gold, leading the way in Australian Gold Exploration.

Preliminary exploration indicates a potential to host considerably more shallow oxide gold than that located already and for the discovery of a new multi-million-ounce gold camp.

The tenements contain over 60 prospects and are comprised in nine principal project areas, namely:
