rocky dam
(Au)

Rocky Dam Project consists of multiple tenements covering ~ 182km², a significant landholding in the highly prospective Norseman - Wiluna Greenstone Belt around the Yindarlgooda Dome within the Eastern Goldfields, located only 45kms east of Kalgoorlie via sealed and well-maintained gravel roads, close to significant mining infrastructure and surrounded by active explorers.

First discovered in the 1990's by CRA as a 700m long gold anomaly along a sheared contact of felsic volcanics and black shales.

Historcial drilling has returned encouraging results delineating thick shallow zones of supergene gold mineralisation. The oxide mineralisation is associated with ferruginous quartz veining and sericite alteration, and remains open along strike with best results of¹

Rocky Dam is a favourable setting for orogenic gold and base metal rich VMS styles of mineralisation with multiple other prospects identified throughout the tenure. The large scale supergene gold mineralisation recorded in historical drilling demonstrates a fertile project area potentially active during major Yilgarn greenstone mineralisation events, which presents a great opportunity to potentially discover primary bedrock mineralisation that may be the source of the supergene enrichment.

Initial exploration work programs will consist of RC and Diamond drilling planned to test depth and strike extent of oxide mineralisation associated with ferruginous quartz veining and sericite alteration at Rocky Dam, as well as geochem sampling, geophysics and Aircore drilling at regional targets.
