Callabonna encouraged by visit to Horn Island Gold Project


Callabonna Resources visited the Horn Island Gold Project in the Torres Strait, the attractive project owned by Alice Queen Holding (Alice Queen), a target of Callabonna on Friday 20 March 2015.

During the visit, Callabonna met with the traditional owners of the land, the Kaurareg people, as well as local Mayor Pedro Stephens and the broader community. Following a spiritual introduction to the land, Callabonna and Alice Queen underwent a two-day site visit together, inspecting different locations across Horn Island.

On his return from Horn Island, Mike Raetz, Executive Director of Callabonna Resources, said: “It was encouraging to visit different sites across Horn Island, and we’ve been really impressed with the geology up there.

“Over the weekend we studied the widespread mineralisation in and around the old mine workings.  Everybody is looking forward to this exciting project progressing, including the local Mayor and local people who have been so supportive.

“We would like to thank the Kaurareg people, the Mayor and Alice Queen for hosting such an encouraging weekend.”
