Gold was first discovered in the Sofala area in 1851 and prospecting/ mining continued until the 1920s.

Modern exploration commenced in the early 1970s with Metals Exploration, Noranda (soil/ rock geochemistry, 3 diamond drill holes), Compass Resources, Homestake (stream geochemistry), RGC (geochemical sampling, aeromagnetic survey, RC/ diamond drilling) and Mineral Ventures.

Exploration carried out by AYM since 2009 has included geophysical interpretation, completion of a highresolution aeromagnetic and radiometric survey, interpretation of geophysical results, mapping and rock chip sampling, IP surveying and surveying.
