Ox-Eyed Herring and Tarpon Prospects
Surface mapping, geochemical sampling and geophysical surveying identified walk-up targets for drilling. The targets tested have delivered a number of promising results, with the main mineralisation hosted by a south-easterly dipping and north-easterly plunging laminated quartz-sulphide sheet within the granite, containing pyrrhotite, pyrite and chalcopyrite.
Several deeper holes have intersected a sulphide-quartz breccia zone, containing copper mineralisation. The current interpretation suggests that the potential exists for a series of flat-lying stacked quartz-sulphide lodes within a zone that could extend over a strike length of more than 700m and down dip for at least 300m.
Further work is needed to establish the density of such lodes and to assess whether they exist in potentially commercial quantities and grades.
