Australia’s largest and most profitable gold mine1

Flagship mine of Australia’s largest gold miner1

Endownment of >50Moz Au and >9.5Mt Cu2

Cadia is made up of a series of multiple deposits. Underground resources projected to surface.

Deposit outlines:

  • Aqua = porphyry
  • Purple = skarn


The worlds largest alkalic porphyry system
  • Cadia on-going mine expansion and comprised of 5 main intrusive deposits
    • Mar’21 quarter production from Cadia East Panel Caves1:
      • 179,546oz gold
      • $1911/oz AISC margin (AISC negative $160/oz)
      • 0.94g/t Au and 0.41% Cu head grade
  • Core of the systems not evident in the top 50 metres
  • Outcropping and near surface skarns systems historically mined and assisted understand the geneses of the Cadia district
  • Cadia district key discoveries: 1992 Cadia Hill & Quarry; 1994 Cadia East; and, 1996 Cadia Far East & Cadia-Ridgeway
  • Cadia Hill discovery (6th hole): 217m @ 1.36g/t Au, 0.15% Cu 1
  • Cadia Far East discovery hole: 229m @ 1.35g/t Au, 0.49% Cu 1
  • Ridgeway discovery: 145m @ 4.3g/t Au, 1.20% Cu 1, 84m @ 7.4g/t Au, 1.27% Cu 1


Skarn alteration and mineralization at Big and Little Cadia deposits helped focus exploration at Cadia toward the larger causative intrusions
