CAVENDISH and Glenthompson could benefit from a potential gold, copper and zinc mining boom.
Two separate mining companies told Tuesday’s Major Industries in the Southern Grampians presentation that operations in the area were under consideration.
The companies are currently evaluating the Stavely Project, which includes areas near Glenthompson and the Black Ranges Project north of Cavendish for future mine sites.
The announcements were made at the Major Industries Update presentation, run by the Southern Grampians Shire at the Hamilton Cinema.
Tasmanian Gold producer, BCD Resources, owner of the Beaconsfield mine, will resume drilling exploration today near Glenthompson.
Community relations consultant, Greg Walcott, told the audience BCD had completed conceptual development studies on 950 square kilometres of western Victoria around Ararat and Glenthompson.
