Anchor Resources is a mineral explorer with a diversified portfolio of highly prospective projects located throughout New South Wales and Queensland. This portfolio provides exposure to a broad range of commodities including gold, antimony, copper, molybdenum and uranium, as well as other base metals. Exploration has been in progress since 2005 and an antimony resource with gold and tungsten credits has already been outlined at our 100% owned Bielsdown project. The value of this resource is enhanced by the strength of the global antimony price over recent years.
Anchor Resources is Sydney based and its experienced management team has considerable expertise and global experience in exploration and mining. Its strategy is to identify mineral properties of high potential in which specific prospects can be advanced in a cost effective manner.

Graeme Rabone – Exploration Manager
DipAppGeol, M App Sc, FAIG
Graeme is a successful geologist with over 40 years continuous experience in mineral exploration, evaluation and mining development of precious and base metal deposits throughout Australia and international experience in Canada, Chile, Mexico, New Caledonia, New Zealand and the United States of America. He has extensive experience in a wide variety of deposit models and ore types, including most types of gold deposits plus copper, base metal, tin and antimony deposits within a diverse range of geological terranes ranging in age from Archaean to Tertiary.
Graeme has played a key role and has led teams in the development of many projects ranging from the generation, discovery, delineation and expansion of a number of mineral deposits throughout Australia and in Mexico. Amongst these deposits are the Fortnum gold mine in Western Australia where he was the generative geologist and the Cerro del Gallo gold-silver deposit in Mexico where he was project manager. This project was awarded “Mining Project of the Year” by the Australian Trade Commission (Austrade) in May 2007.
Graeme was awarded the Joe Fisher Medal for Excellence in Mining in 1996 by the Darwin Branch of the Australasian Institute of Mining and Metallurgy for his work on establishing the controls on gold mineralisation at the Rustler’s Roost gold mine in the Northern Territory.
Graeme has worked for Anchor Resources Limited since 2009 and was appointed Exploration Manager on 22 March 2011.
Bob Brown – Chief Geologist
Bob is a geoscientist with more than 45 years continuous experience. Bob commenced his career in the New South Wales Geological Survey, where he worked as a regional geological mapper and metallogenic mapper in the Cobar Basin, Broken Hill-Willyama Supergroup and New England Orogen. This exposure to a diversity of geological settings and a wide range of mineral deposit styles has equipped Bob with a substantial, first-hand knowledge of mineral deposit characteristics and their relationship to geology and geophysics.
During his time with the Geological Survey Bob was also active in specialist research projects, including the development of the Eastern Australia sapphire and diamond origin models, and the mineralisation potential of large parts of the New England Orogen based on high resolution geophysical data. Bob also developed the Geological Survey’s unique mobile GIS mapping system in 2004 and has continued evolving and refining that system to the present.
Bob left the Geological Survey more than 10 years ago to commence a career in the exploration industry as a contractor and consultant. During that time, he worked on a range of gold and base metal deposits and prospects in eastern Australia and New Zealand, returning to the Cobar Basin. Here, he was involved in prospect identification, modelling and characterisation for a significant exploration company. He also played a significant role in the discovery and understanding of several major new prospects and deposits. This latter work equipped Bob with an extensive knowledge of the characteristics of deposits within the Cobar Basin, and resulted in a refinement of the previously accepted deposit models and mineralisation controls.
Bob has established a long-term mentoring and student assistance role with the University of New England as an adjunct. Bob assists with teaching field skills and co-lectures in GIS, exploration geophysics and mapping using mobile GIS.
Bob has worked for Anchor Resources since 2018 and was appointed Chief Geologist in 2021.
