The road to El Donna: Australian explorer eyes drill-ready gold project

Australian gold and copper explorer TechGen Metals is turning its attention to two gold projects near Kalgoorlie as it readies itself for an IPO later this year.

Australian gold and copper explorer TechGen Metals is turning its attention to two gold projects near Kalgoorlie as it readies itself for an IPO later this year.

The company has 100% ownership of seven projects across three distinct geographic provinces in Western Australia – Paterson Orogen, and Ashburton Basin, and the Yilgarn Craton.

It’s within this last province that the company’s two lead projects, the El Donna and Ida Valley projects, are located.

The El Donna project is located roughly 50km north east of Kalgoorlie, between the Mayday North gold mine and the Penny’s Find gold mine.

The site houses a small exercise license for a deposit which is presently being developed privately, and the company has developed a drilling program it intends to undertake (after listing on the ASX) based on historic reports which haven’t been properly followed up.

Ida Valley, on the other hand, represents a new greenstone belt discovery

Over the past 18 months, TechGen has conducted a number of tests in the region, including auger soil surveys and rock chip samples as part of a plan to get the project drill-ready post-IPO.


Gold prices tipped to explode

International investment bank Goldman Sachs has forecast the price of gold to surge to $US2,300 ($2975.05) per ounce in 2021 amid heightened concern over inflation.

That rally would put the price of gold bullion at an all-time high, and represents more than a 20% increase on the current price.

The bank added that it expects demand from emerging markets to grow, noting that Chinese and Indian demand is already displaying signs of normalisation, while newly-elected US President Joe Biden is expected to take a softer stance on trade – further supporting a rally.
