Tambourah Gold Project

Tambourah Gold Project.

The Tambourah Gold Project is situated on the historic Tambourah Goldfield in the Eastern Pilbara region of Western Australia, 85km southwest of Marble Bar and approximately halfway between Port Hedland and Newman in the East Pilbara district of Western Australia. 

The Tambourah project comprises one granted Exploration Licence and four granted Prospecting Licences covering a total area of 696 ha.  The Tambourah project is highly prospective for shear hosted gold mineralisation, centrally located within historically significant discoveries.

Tambourah Project Geology 

The Tambourah Project is situated along the western margin of the Western Shaw greenstone belt, on the eastern limb of an anticline, folded around the Tambourah Dome where the ~3,240 Ma Kavir Granodiorite meets the Apex Basalt of the Warrawoona Group. The belt is bound to the east by the Mulgandinnah Shear Zone which represents the western edge of the granitic Shaw Dome.

Tambourah Project Exploration Plan 

The Tambourah Project tenements are highly under explored, Tambourah Metals will be undertaking comprehensive systematic exploration across the tenure over the next 2 years

Exploration at Tambourah for gold and pegmatite minerals will include:

  • Acquisition, processing and interpretation of existing geophysical datasets and acquisition of new geophysical datasets as required.
  • Mapping and geochemical assessment for drilling target development.¬†
  • Heritage surveys.
  • Infill drilling between known gold mineralisation.
  • Extensional drilling to investigate mineralisation and any associated structures down-dip and down-plunge.
  • Drilling of any new targets identified by field reconnaissance or geophysical interpretation.
