This paper reports a new route for production of 190-193Au radionuclides from a natW target. For the first time the production cross section of 11B induced reactions on tungsten for production of 190-193Au were measured up to 63 MeV projectile energy. High cross section was observed for 190, 192Au at the highest energy whereas 191, 193Au showed moderate cross section values. The experimentally obtained cross sections were compared with the predictions of the PACE4 and EMPIRE3.2.2 code.
