Mount Davis, Western Australia.
The Mt Davis Project is located ~180km NNE of Wiluna, Western Australia, along the northern margin of the Earaheedy Basin. It consists of two Exploration Licences and covers an area of ~750km². The project was acquired following the discovery of extensive zinc and copper mineralisation by Rumble Resources at its Chinook Prospect, located on the southern side of the Basin.
Mineralisation at Chinook is stratigraphically controlled and located below the Frere Iron Formation. The Mt Davis tenements contain similar stratigraphy but occur in an area of greater structural complexity which has recently been reported as an important ingredient in the localisation of base metals at Chinook.
Interpretation of detailed aeromagnetic/radiometric data outlined six priority target areas for initial ground follow-up. Shallow northerly dipping and gently folded Frere Iron Formation is interpreted throughout the project area, with large scale NE and NW trending faults disrupting the stratigraphy over a strike length of ~40km.
These structures are considered potential feeder faults for base metals (Pb-Zn, Cu) similar to that being defined by Rumble Resources on the southern side of the Earaheedy Basin.
A reconnaissance site visit confirmed the presence of Frere Iron Formation outlining key areas of interest for sampling (shallow drilling).
The company is currently exploring within Australia & Peru and holds in excess of 6,000 km² of exploration title (granted tenements and tenement applications).
