GEM is located in the southern outskirts of Gympie in South East Queensland. GEM is less than 200-km north of Brisbane, in the State of Queensland, Australia. GEM is located within the Gympie Regional Council area and the Wide bay Burnette Regional Plan area. The East Deep Creek Structure Plan falls under the Gympie Regional Council Planning Scheme. There are a few ongoing activities that, when finished, can provide a significant uplift to the value of GEM site apart from the satisfactory completion of rehabilitation, remediation and relinquishing of mining license, including but not limited to (i) passing of the East Deep Creek Structure Plan and (ii) the realignment of the Bruce Highway—a major highway that runs south of Brisbane to Coora-- the north east tip of Australia. Gympie is well positioned to make an impact on the connectivity link from south of Brisbane and north of Rockhampton, going further up to Townsville—all three port areas with bright prospects for shaping the future of Gympie.
