The Stormont deposit is a skarn-style gold-silver-bismuth deposit located in northern Tasmania, 40km south of Devonport.

It is a shallow, keel-shaped deposit, with vein and disseminated gold and sulphide mineralisation commencing at surface and extending to around 40m depth. The gangue is mostly grossular-andradite garnet, diopside pyroxenes and calcium amphiboles. The skarn developed in the Ordovician Gordon Limestone, where intruded by the Devonian Dolcoath granite.

A small open cut and some underground working were operated historically around 1927-1934 for bismuth and gold, and production of 4t Bi and 86oz of Au was recorded. It was reopened from 2013 to 2015 by Torque Mining Ltd (90%) and Frontier Resources Ltd (10%). The ore was trucked 130km by road to Beaconsfield for processing at the gold mine there. In 2014 a production of 110,200t @ 3.4g/t Au was recorded. Bismuth was not recovered, despite the ore carrying 0.2% Bi.
