Welcome to the Mount Todd Gold Mine
The Mt Todd mine site is located approximately 50km north of Katherine and 250 km south of Darwin. The site covers a mine tenement of 160,878 ha, which includes both the Batman and Quigleys gold deposits.
The site was acquired by Vista Gold and its wholly owned subsidiary Vista Gold Australia in 2006.
Currently not in production, Vista Gold is working with the authorities to obtain the necessary permits for the mine prior to making a final investment decision on the project.
A favourable investment decision could lead to a two-year construction phase employing approximately 450 people with an ongoing workforce of 350 during operations.
Vista Gold announced on 18 March 2013 that the Batman deposit is now estimated to contain 7.40 million ounces in gold in the Measured and Indicated (M&I) categories and 1.73 million ounces in the Inferred category, a 285% increase from 1.92 million ounces in 2006.
Community Update: Great response from Katherine community
Vista Gold recently participated in the Katherine Show where key staff were on hand to answer questions about the project and how gold is processed.
Located in the Commercial Pavillion, the Mt Todd stand featured a core sample tray so members of the public could learn more about Vista's explorations and the deposits at Mt Todd.
General Manager and Director Brent Murdoch said the Show was a great opportunity to meet with the Katherine local community, to answer enquiries and to see what other projects are of interest to the region.
Vista Gold continues to play an active role in the community and mining industry with Brent Murdoch speaking at a number of forums to provide updates on the project and contribute to the general discussion of mining in the Northern Territory.
Mt Todd will next be presented at Mining the Territory on 19 – 21 August at the Darwin Convention Centre www.miningnt.com.au
