Fountain Head Gold Project

Opened 9 June 2021

Closed 6 Aug 2021



PNX Metals Limited (PNX) proposes to recommence mining of the Fountain Head open pit, which is situated on granted Mineral Leases north of the Mt Wells road between the towns of Pine Creek and Adelaide River, approximately 170 km south of Darwin. Ore will be mined using traditional drilling and blasting techniques and gold extracted using a carbon-in pulp process.

The project requires assessment at the level of an Environmental Impact Statement under the NT Environmental Assessment Act 1982 with transitional provisions from the Environment Protection Act 2019.
