Historical gold production for the Warriedar Mining Centre over the period 1913-1935 was 148 kg recovered from 13,900t of ore at an average grade of 10.7g/t Au. Ore was processed at the numerous state batteries that operated in the region, one of which operated at Warriedar until ~1940.
The Warriedar region has a history of base metal production with the Warriedar Mine producing copper between 1958-1969 at a grade of 9.83% Cu.
The historical mining on the Warriedar Goldfield was undertaken by syndicates on a campaign basis with limited access to capital.
In more modern times, prospectors have gleaned gold from the Warriedar Project area through dry blowing and artisanal workings. This activity drew the interest of Tempest Minerals who have been conducting exploration campaigns since 2016 studying the source of this gold.
