Since its formation in 2006, Zamia has been focused on exploration for copper (Cu), gold (Au) and other metals in the Clermont District of central Queensland. Gold was discovered at Clermont in 1861, sparking one of Queensland’s major gold rushes. The 1980’s saw the discovery of several new gold deposits to the north of Clermont, and new mines were developed at Pajingo, Wirralie, Yandan, Lucky Break and Belyando, establishing the region as a notable epithermal gold province.
In 2007-08, Zamia discovered the large but low grade Anthony molybdenum deposit. This, the first significant porphyry-style discovery in the region, demonstrates the regional potential for bulk-tonnage porphyry-style deposits.
Through its wholly-owned subsidiary, Zamia Resources Pty Ltd, the Company holds a package of Exploration Permits for Minerals (EPMs) which is highly prospective for epithermal gold and porphyry copper-gold deposits.
