Mining & Exploration Leases
map

There are substantial undeveloped manganese and other resources within the Groote archipelago.

The main project proponent on Groote Eylandt to date has been GEMCO, which is comprised of two shareholders: South32 Pty Ltd (60%) and Anglo Operations (40%). Much of the development has been in the form of manganese mining, largely confined to the west side of the island on the main leases. This may be about to change with the possible development of other exploration tenements in the eastern, southern and south eastern areas of the island.
