Shares / Stock Code


Stock Exchange / Sharemarket


Gunson Resources is a Perth based Australian mineral exploration company listed in May 2000. Two of its assets, the Coburn and Mount Gunson projects were divested from Stuart Petroleum NL, formerly Stuart Metals NL but the other projects were initiated since listing.

The Tennant Creek project comprises two approved exploration licenses and three exploration license applications over a combined area of 107 square kilometers in the Tennant Creek district. The Burkin project is a nickel sulfide exploration project, which comprises a single 207 square kilometer exploration license about 450 kilometers east of Kalgoorlie, some 70 kilometers north of the transcontinental railway.

Gunson Resources was named after one of its principal assets, the Mount Gunson copper exploration project in South Australia. Mount Gunson is a flat topped hill named in 1875 after Dr. John Michael Gunson (1822-1881) who was one of the first medical doctors in Adelaide. An Irishman, he was a pioneer member of the senate of Adelaide University and president of the Catholic Young Men's Society.

A Bankable Feasibility Study was successfully completed on the Coburn project in December 2004. GUN has purchased the Coburn pastoral lease, providing it with greater control of its operational environment. As an explorer, Gunson has no customers at present. Gunson competes with other companies involved in exploration activities such as BHP Billiton, Rio Tinto and Harmony.
