SnapshotEast Kundana Joint Venture is comprised of four producing underground mines: Raleigh, Rubicon, Hornet and Pegasus.

The acquisition of Kundana assets, by Evolution Mining, elevates Mungari to a cornerstone asset and consolidates regional resources. In 2023, whilst mining ceased in Frog's Leg, continued activity at Kundana and East Kundana Joint Venture contributed to underground mine development.

Following the integration of Kundana assets, and ongoing growth projects, the Mungari Gold Operation has established Kurrajong Village. It is the new home-away-from-home in Coolgardie for some of our new employees and contractors.

Summary:

The Kundana camp is situated within the NorsemanWiluna Greenstone Belt, in an area dominated by the Zuleika Shear Zone, which separates the Coolgardie domain from the Ora Banda domain. The Zuleika Shear Zone in the Kundana area comprises multiple anastomosing shears the most important of which are the K2, the K2A and Strzelecki Shears. Raleigh mineralisation is hosted on the Strzelecki Structure. Strzelecki mineralisation consists of very narrow, very highgrade mineralisation on a laminated vein hosted in the camp-scale Strzelecki Shear which abuts a differentiated mafic intrusive, the Powder Sill Gabbro against intermediate volcanoclastic rocks (Black Flag Group). A thin ‘skin’ of volcanogenic lithic siltstone-sandstone lies between the gabbro and the Strzelecki shear. Being bound by an intrusive contact on one side and a sheared contact on the other, the thickness of the sedimentary package is highly variable from absent to about forty metres true width. The Hornet-Rubicon-Pegasus mineralisation consists primarily of high-grade laminated vein hosted gold on the K2 plane of the Zuleika shear with additional mineralisation on associated lower order structures. The Falcon target is a related mineralised zone in the hangingwall to Pegasus and between the two main Zuleika structures, the K2 and Strzelecki structures.
