Abstract

The Tanami Region, which is the largest gold province in the Northern Territory, has produced 122 t of gold, has a known remaining resource of 190 t, and has high exploration potential. Most deposits are concentrated in three goldfields: Dead Bullock Soak (DBS), The Granites and Tanami. Significant mineralisation is also located at the Groundrush (0.7 Moz Au), Oberon (0.48 Moz Au) and Crusade (0.1 Moz Au) deposits, as well as the Coyote prospect in WA. Gold mineralisation is late in the tectonic cycle, has a spatial association with late orogenic felsic intrusives, and is closely related to late D5 structures.
