Exploration at Austral Gold is a fundamental platform for value creation. Austral Gold has formed a technical team with deep knowledge and understanding of the genesis and mineralization control on precious metal epithermal deposit formation. Through its land holdings in prolific epithermal regions in the Paleocene gold belt in northern Chile, and in San Juan, Río Negro, and Santa Cruz provinces, in Argentina, Austral is aiming to discover new ore bodies, identify new opportunities and drive the growth of the company. The fundamental tools of success are;
- Technical knowledge of ore deposits, coupled with experience in the regions and expertise in the deposit type.
- Expertise in exploration using innovative techniques.
- Creating predictive models from operations or known areas, and applying these to brownfield and greenfield exploration strategies in the project/region.
Austral’s goals for exploration are becoming a leader in innovative exploration and discovery, maximizing exploration success cost-effectively, including discoveries and adding additional resources to existing operations. With an unbeaten track record, the potential for further growth is considerably high.
