Avoca band on familiar ground

It’s another fresh twist on an old Western Australia goldfields tale for Rohan Williams, who turned innovative exploration theories into a one-billion-dollar company, Avoca Resources, at Higginsville near Kalgoorlie. Now it’s Laverton: old, tired, well-traversed by geologist types over decades … but still capable, evidently, of yielding multi-million-ounce gold finds. Williams and the former Avoca team at Dacian Gold are on the threshold of pushing out another DFS, by year end, and building another ‘new’ gold mining camp.
