Veteran geologist Peter Langworthy has been promising to turn Gateway (GML) into a player in WA’s Murchison region ever since he arrived as MD at the former sleepy gold explorer.
Langworthy has now started to deliver on the promise.
Gateway has just announced a maiden resource estimate for the Whistler and Montague deposits at its historic Gidgee project in WA of 3.4mt at 2.2g/t for 240,000oz of gold.
It is a good start for the lightly-capitalised Gateway ($25m at 1.9c a share).
The risk-chickens came home to roost this week as the compounding effect of trade war jitters were magnified by the start of a debilitating US Presidential impeachment process

Palladium, a sister of platinum but not a mainstream commodity, has emerged as the star of the year, though there are very few entry points for Australian investors unless they’re prepared to look to South Africa or Russia – where entirely new levels of risk abound.

First drilling of the Mars prospect at PolarX’s Alaska Range project has hit porphyry-style veins containing visible copper, with the junior saying it was looking forward to further results from the “very exciting” target (reports MiningNews).
PolarX is excited because of the potential significance of any discovery given "the large size of the co‐incident copper‐gold‐molybdenum geochemical anomaly and the geophysical anomalies at Mars".
Assays are also awaited for potential gold content.
Drilling on a minor portion of the 18km-long contact of the Montague Granodiorite has delivered Gateway Mining a maiden resource of 240,000 ounces of gold, and the company has immediately launched into a 16,000m drilling program hoping to quickly add additional ounces (reports MiningNews).
Gateway managing director Peter Langworthy said the maiden inferred resource for the Whistler and Montague deposits of 3.4 million tonnes grading 2.2 grams per tonne was an important first step for the project in the emerging play.
