The Challenger gold mine is located 750 km northwest of Adelaide and is one of the most remote mines in Australia.
Challenger was a virgin gold discovery made by Dominion Mining & JV partner Resolute Resources in May 1995. Dominion purchased Resolute Resource’s 50% interest in late 2000 and the site is now owned by Kingsgate Consolidated Limited.
The mine successfully transitioned from an open pit to underground during 2004 – 2005 and is now solely an underground operation. Ore is trucked to the nearby processing plant which currently process nearly 450,000 tonnes per annum.
