Kalgoorlie-Boulder sits on the edge of the Golden Mile, historically an intensely mined gold area, with many historic leases. It is now a gigantic open pit (called the Superpit).

Paddy Hannan is credited with the discovery of gold at Kalgoorlie in June 1893, leading to one of the largest alluvial gold rushes seen in history. This was shortly followed by numerous companies reef mining, the Golden Mile packed with shafts, headframes, and processing plants.

In 1896, Richard Eades was credited (Simpson Minerals of W.A. 1948), with the discovery of the first telluride ore at the Golden Mile, these ores rich in gold below the weathering zone at 50 to 250 feet below the surface.

The Golden Mile consists of many types of igneous rocks including andesite, tuff, dolerite, gabbro, pyroxenite, hornblende, and porphyry (feldspar and albite). All have shown intense metamorphism. For example augite has been uralitised, then chloritised, then carbonated. Felspars have been zoisitised, olivine serpentinised or carbonated etc, before gold and tellurium was introduced from below in alkali sulphide solutions.

In the upper levels, free gold is found as sponge gold, mustard gold, and scaly redistributed fragments. Sometimes the surfaces of calaverite and sylvanite at the water level have their surfaces altered to mustard gold.

Rich telluride ore is found in dolerite, porphyry, and calc-schist. These lodes have a high degree of carbonation, chloritisation and sericitisation, with a moderate development of secondary pyrite and albite. Quartz and chalcedony is present infilling cracks, or as lenses.

Often the various species of tellurides at the Golden Mile are intergrown, often also with free gold. These occur as fillings of narrow fractures, minor amounts in quartz, calcite, ankerite and siderite, granular impregnations in the main lode mass, and large masses replacing rock on the side of fractures.

Simpson: 'Some of the finest specimens of calaverite ever obtained anywhere in the world have been got at Kalgoorlie, most of them ultimately going to the smelter owing to their high intrinsic value.'

Geochronology

Mineralization age: Neoarchean : 2695 ± 16 Ma to 2602 ± 8 Ma

Important note: This table is based only on rock and mineral ages recorded below and is not necessarily a complete representation of the geochronology, but does give an indication of possible mineralization events relevant to this locality. As more age information is added this table may expand in the future. A break in the table simply indicates a lack of data entered here, not necessarily a break in the geologic sequence. Grey background entries are from different, related, localities.
