Bird-in-Hand Community

Bird-in-Hand Gold Project (Project) is situated on the site of the historic Bird-in-Hand gold mine, located 2.7km from Woodside in the Adelaide Hills, 30km east of South Australia’s capital city, Adelaide and 35km north of Terramin’s existing Angas Zinc Mine (Angas) at Strathalbyn.

One of 17 historic gold mines, Bird-in-Hand produced over 10,500 ounces of gold between 1881 and 1889, at an average grade of 12.9g/t. After acquiring the Project in 2013, Terramin have since released a revised Resource (2013 Resource) estimate of 557,000 tonnes at 13.0g/t gold for 233,000 ounces. It is anticipated that subject to required regulatory approvals, Bird-in-Hand ore will be hauled to the Angas facilities and processed to produce a gold doré and high grade gold concentrate.

Preliminary feasibility studies continue on the Project, with significant focus on the hydrological and environmental studies, as well as plans for an infill drilling program, which will facilitate mine design. Terramin is currently working with all stakeholders to progress the Bird-in-Hand project to gain approval.
