Hillgrove Resources are a proud Australian Stock Exchange (ASX:HGO) listed resource company, with strong heritage and local presence in South Australia through our Kanmantoo Copper Gold Mine and regional exploration tenements.
Hillgrove has operated within South Australia since 2005 during which time it has developed strong operating experience with award winning positive stakeholder engagement practices, built up extensive technical knowledge about the region’s geological setting and mineral prospectivity, and become an active member of the South Australian mining and exploration community.
Located in the majestic Adelaide Hills, approximately 55km from Adelaide CBD, Kanmantoo features the recently completed Giant, Nugent and Emily Star Open Pits, and a fully permitted and operational ore processing plant, and tailings storage facility with spare capacity.
The Kanmantoo underground development commenced in May 2023, after investigations continued to uncover high-grade copper-gold lodes underneath the existing Kanmantoo open pits and investor funding secured. Given the location of the discoveries, on an operational Mine Lease and immediately adjacent to existing, fully permitted and operational, infrastructure, this places Hillgrove in a unique position to be able to rapidly develop and deliver.
In addition to the Kanmantoo operation, Hillgrove holds over 6,150kms² of granted Exploration Licences in South-eastern South Australia which are highly prospective for the discovery of economic copper deposits within a variety of geological settings (“South Eastern Copper Project”). The Company also continues to investigate other options to generate value from the closed Giant Open Pit and associated infrastructure such as a Pumped Hydro Energy Scheme (PHES).
We are fast becoming an iconic Australian mining story!
