Welcome to The Tandai Project Gold and Silver mine, Project Indonesia
Tandai is an under-explored, high-grade gold and silver mining project. The Tandai Project is located approximately 100km north of Bengkulu in the Kabupaten area of Bengkulu Utara in central Sumatra Indonesia and covers an area of some 1,000km². It has a long history of mining from the early part of the 20th Century until post World War II, with a historic total production of more than 1.4Moz Au.
The Tandai Gold project refers to the exploration and mining licence held by Sumatra’s 92.5% owned subsidiary PT Bengkulu Utara Gold . PT BUG is a PMA company in which foreign corporations may hold up to 100% of the equity. The IUP covers an area of 99,980 hectares in the regency of Bengkulu Utara in the province of Bengkulu, central Sumatra. Its principal prospect is Lebong Tandai, a former Dutch underground gold mine that has yielded 1.4 million ounces of gold at an average grade of 15.4 g/t Au and 167 g/t Ag, and its immediate surrounds.
Dated 16 July 2010 Sumatra announced that it was moving to 100% ownership of PT BUG and all of its other material Sumatran projects. PT BUG encompasses the Tandai project which is located approximately 100 kilometres north of Bengkulu. The old Dutch mining town at Tandai still remains, and was re-furbished by PT Lusang Mining Ltd (in a joint venture with CSR, then Billiton) when the mine was first redeveloped and then re-opened between 1985 and 1995.
Tandai is a high grade, epithermal intermediate sulphidation system, with gold-silver mineralisation hosted by a series of veins and breccias distributed over a vertical extent exceeding 500 metres and more than 5 kilometres of strike. The vein system has a long history of production and geological consultants CSA Global Pty Ltd independently estimated the presence of multi-million ounce exploration target potential. Sumatra’s exploration confirms the presence of sub-parallel structures north (Toko Rotan) and south (Glumbuk) of the exploited central Tandai vein system.
