A mining company has found a large quality of gold near Paeroa.
New Talisman Gold Mines has been looking for gold in Karangahake Gorge and has found over 300,000 ounces of high quality gold at one of its sites called Dubbo.
The company said they wanted to begin extracting small amounts of gold early next year.
Protect Karangahake, a group formed against New Talisman Gold Mines, has been protesting against all mining in the area since the company gained the green light for bulk sampling.
