Explore Middle Earth with Indiana Resources Limited

Updated: Apr 21, 2022

Bronwyn Barnes, Executive Chair of Indiana Resources Limited (ASX: IDA) is taking us towards the last frontier where the unknown depths of the Gawler Craton lie.

Noel Ong, CEO of Samso believes the Gawler Craton to be the next commodity rush. So it has been an intriguing conversation with Bronwyn Barnes, Executive Chair of Indiana Resources Limited to talk about the happenings of the Gawler Craton and the Tanzanian litigation. As the Gawler Craton region is so under-explored (in fact, the average investor may well scratch his head and wonder where this place is if you mention it), it is exciting to see this company taking the step to make discoveries.

While there are no mystical evil rings in the Gawler Craton, what it does have is giant deposits. In fact, it is host to the biggest uranium and copper mine. It may be hard to believe but mineral exploration in the "Shear-hosted" world of the Gawler Craton is still relatively unknown to the general public.

Noel has done two Samso Insights on this topic to highlight why investors should take more interest in this region of Australia.

  2. The results of the latest exploration drilling at Minos and why this is slowly showing the start of an exciting region for discovery.

  3. How the Tanzanian litigation is progressing.

  4. Why Bronwyn feels that the Gawler project is the focus for the company.

  5. The upcoming resource statement from further drilling.

Indiana Resources is one interesting company to take note of as it has a great project and is literally painting an exciting future on their own blank canvas. Ms. Barnes is the company's very own Princess Arwen, ready to ride into the unknown and bravely explore. More will be revealed in time, and with what is known about the region right now, there is much to be expected.

Indiana’s ground position in the Gawler Craton covers 5,090 km² – with the Company’s tenements strategically located between the historic gold mining centres of Tunkillia and Tarcoola.

The Central Gawler Craton has outstanding potential for the discovery of significant gold deposits, as indicated by the Tunkillia deposit (588,000 ounce gold resource), which adjoins the southern edge of Indiana’s portfolio and the historical mining centre of Tarcoola, which adjoins the northern edge of Indiana’s portfolio, where historic production and current resource total approximately 190,000 ounces.

The Ntaka Hill Nickel Project is an advanced nickel sulphide project that is development ready. In early 2020, the Companies advised the Tanzanian Government that a dispute had arisen in relation to the cancellation of the Retention Licence for Ntaka Hill. Indiana is the manager of the Joint Venture for the Project and is leading activities to progress a Claim to Arbitration against the Government of Tanzania for the illegal expropriation and loss of the Ntaka Hill Nickel Project.
