Big Picture – A Deep Dive Examination of Theta Gold Mines Ltd

Theta Gold Mines Ltd Snapshot

Theta Gold Mines Limited (TGM) is an Australian Securities Exchange listed company (ASX: TGM).

Theta Hill Gold Project

In 2017, following digitising of historical mining and exploration data (a lot of the data was pre 1900) over the Beta and Theta gold reefs within the Company’s Mining Right MR83, the Company discovered this open-cut mining opportunity only 500 metres from the CIL Plant.

Other Open-cut Resources

Since the Project Bentley announcement on 6 September 2017, the Company has shifted its focus to near surface open-cut mining opportunities. Through continued effort in sorting out and digitising historical production/exploration data over the Company’s controlled 43 historical mines, more and more opportunities similar to the Theta Hill mine will be discovered and drilled out.

Underground Resources

Rietfontein Mine

The first underground project which may be developed is Rietfontein, subject to confirmation of reserves.

The project is fully permitted so the main risks to the development timeline will be the completion of drilling and engineering work.
