Gold mining could be on the cards in Queensland

Gold mining considered by SolGold

Opportunities for apprenticeships in Rockhampton could soon be on the rise, as one company carries out explorations throughout the area.

SolGold has announced that it has already discovered 500,000 ounces of gold at its Rannes gold-silver project, but would like to reach a million ounces before completing a feasibility study.

The firm has a number of exploration sites, including Mount Perry, which is found to the south-west of Rockhampton.

Speaking to the ABC, chief executive Malcolm Norris said: “Our exploration so far has explored to a depth of about 250 metres but gold occurrences can be close to the surface but still not have a strong surface expression.

“While it may not be classified as a gold rush, there’s a lot of activity going on.”

Mining opportunities are growing in Queensland at present, with the recent announcement that uranium mining is to be reinstated.

State premier Campbell Newman acknowledged that the move would result in more jobs in Queensland, while strengthening the local economy.

It has been 30 years since uranium mining was last carried out in the state, during which time the Northern Territory, South Australia and Western Australia have all taken advantage of the industry.
