Rompas is an exciting new gold discovery 100% owned by Mawson and is located a few kilometres south of the Arctic Circle in the municipality of Ylitornio, Northern Finland. The project is a new camp-scale discovery where high-grade gold and uranium have been found within an area approaching 100 square kilometres. Mawson acquired the project in April 2010 and outlined an initial high-grade gold vein discovery over 6 kilometres strike and 250 metres width. In 2013, a new style of disseminated gold mineralization was drilled at Rajapalot, 8 kilometres east of the Rompas vein system.
