Doolgunna Exploration

Doolgunna Exploration

Sandfire holds a dominant ground position in the Doolgunna-Bryah Basin region of Western Australia (WA), which now stands at over 7,000km2 and includes the Company’s DeGrussa Operations.

This landholding includes both 100%-owned tenements, as well as land held under farm-in and Joint Venture agreements.

Sandfire is progressing a dual track exploration program across the Doolgunna Province – a Copper Exploration Pipeline targeting potential extensions to the DeGrussa and Monty VMS systems and other VMS-hosted copper mineralisation, and a Gold Exploration Pipeline targeting gold mineralisation that could support the development of a gold processing train at the DeGrussa processing plant.

The Company has allocated an exploration budget of $16 million for the Doolgunna region in FY2022.

Sandfire owns the only operating base metals processing plant in the region (the 1.5Mtpa DeGrussa Concentrator), putting the Company in an outstanding position to capitalise on new discoveries.

Sustainability Snapshot - Supporting Shooting Stars

Sandfire has a strong ongoing partnership with Shooting Stars, an initiative of Netball WA and Glass Jar which uses netball as a vehicle to encourage greater engagement and school attendance by young Aboriginal women living in WA’s remote communities and regional towns. Sandfire’s support funds the employment of a program co-ordinator based at the Meekatharra District High School (MDHS).
