  • Several past tin mines including PIONEER, DORSET DREDGE, ENDURANCE, MONARCH, and SCOTIA, owned by Tin Dragon Pty Ltd, a company owned by J Stewart and P Askins.
  • Known tungsten and tin deposits in a large geochemically anomalous area prospective for Aberfoyle-Storeys Creek type systems.
  • Use the link to Tin Dragon Pty Ltd website, on the home page, for fuller summary information.

Four Exploration Licences totalling 523 sq km, encompass the deposits in the Pioneer, Dorset Dredge, Endurance, Monarch, Scotia and Thureaus areas, and a number of other mined areas and resources. Rarely in the past was such a coherent land position available.

Paleochannel deposits of Eocene to recent age, with cassiterite and accessory gold and sapphires. The source of the cassiterite must be in the unexplored poorly exposed basement, which consists of the roof zone of a multiple intrusive Devonian granite emplaced into Silurian metasediments. A separate area to the south contains many known tin-tungsten-quartz veins in a zoned mineralised system, and there is a large geochemically anomalous area. A model of mineralisation above granite cupolas can be demonstrated, with obvious potential for mega systems such as known to the west at Aberfoyle-Storeys Creek, yet very little systematic subsurface exploration has been done.
