The Kookynie Gold Project

The Kookynie Gold Project lies approximately 180 km north of Kalgoorlie, 50 kms south of Leonora and approximately 25 kms from the bitumen Goldfields Highway linking Kalgoorlie to Leonora in the Eastern Goldfields of Western Australia.

Located within the Keith-Kilkenny Tectonic Zone, the project hosts the historical mining centres of McTavish, Leipold, Champion, Altona, and the prolific Diamantina-Cosmopolitan-Cumberland (DCC) trend.

The historic Cosmopolitan Gold mine produced 360,000 ounces of gold from discovery in 1895 to 1922. During the early part of last century, the Cosmopolitan ranked as one of the largest and most profitable gold mines in Western Australia.

The Cosmopolitan Mine is untested by modern exploration, in particular the potentially rich plunge extensions of the main mineralised shoots. Drill testing of the Cumberland and Diamantina depth extensions is very shallow.
