Challa project boosting potential to increase gold resource inventory

Platina Resources’ recent exploration activities have been geared towards its 100% owned Challa Gold Project in Western Australia. The project consists of two exploration licences covering 293 square kilometres, with the Company targeting significant gold deposits undercover. 

The project sits within a prolific gold producing region including Sandstone (1.3 million ozs), Mt Magnet (6 million ozs) and Youanmi (670,000 ozs). Furthermore, the project has witnessed limited recent or modern exploration activities due to shallow outcrop (transported sands and silts) covering the project tenements.
