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.
