Lewis Ponds Zinc-Gold Project

Lewis Ponds, located in the Lachlan Ford Belt of NSW, is a major development project with significant base metal-gold open-pit potential. Drilling conducted in early 2017 confirmed large mineralised systems, whilst Lewis Ponds also offers several kilometres of strike for further exploration.

Extensive workings are seen throughout the historic mine site at Lewis Ponds, whilst sampling by Ardea at the Main Zone and Tom’s Zone returned assays of 9.9-12.1g/t gold and 272-539g/t silver indicating potential epithermal mineralised affinity.
