The Commonwealth Project is a large gold and silver deposit about 95 kilometres North of Orange in NSW.

They began working on the project nearly four years ago, and have had great results to date including the discovery of high grade gold and silver. In October 2016, they tripled their landholding around the project in the mineral rich Lachlan Fold Belt by applying for three additional exploration licences. In July 2017, Impact Minerals proceeded to the next phase of the project and began follow up drilling.

When did Impact Minerals begin working on the Commonwealth Project?

The Commonwealth Project was acquired on June 13 2013.

In 2016 Impact Minerals announced on the Australian Securities Exchange the discovery of high grade gold and very high grade silver mineralisation at Silica Hill, part of the Commonwealth deposit. New drilling has commenced on site with the expectation of further significant discoveries.

Will the Commonwealth Project become a mine?

It is still too early to tell if the Commonwealth Project will become a viable mine.  However so far there are encouraging signs. Through regular public meetings and Community Newsletters, Impact Minerals will keep the community updated on each stage of development.
