About Barlow’s Gully
Leases Type: Prospecting
Primary Commodity: Gold (Au)
Located in the Central Goldfields of Western Australia 50 kilometres north-northwest of the town of Leonora is the Infinity Mining Barlow’s Gully Tenement. The Barlow’s Gully tenement is a prospecting lease with its commodity identified as gold.
Discovered by the Morris Brothers in late 1890, the bothers worked the streams and gullies of Barlow’s without ever identifying the source of the gold. Even today, no record exists regarding the quantity of gold found at Barlow’s Gully.
Barlow’s Gully is located on a splay structure of the regionally significant Ursus Fault, considered a key gold bearing structure that hosts several known gold deposits outside of the lease.
The Barlow’s Gully lease has been in private hands whenever larger mining companies have been active in the area, and so no previous recorded exploration has been carried out on the lease.
Analysis of rock chip sampling carried out at Barlow’s Gully in January 2022 has returned up to 15.5 parts per million of gold. An Aircore drilling program soon followed. This combined with the soil results from the same campaign, Infinity has identified three significant gold targets, the largest being 480 meters by 100 meters in area. An RC drilling campaign is now being planned to test these high-priority geochemical targets.
Barlow’s Gully is just part of Infinity Mining’s 13.8 square kilometre Central Goldfields portfolio.
Scope Geological Structure & Drill Program
- First discovered in 1890s, but no records of the quantity of gold taken from this site exist. This tenement has been held in private hands for many years and has not been subjected to modern geological review.
- Recommended a systematic mapping and sampling program be undertaken to identify surface structures and seek an understanding of the potential source of the anecdotal surface gold occurrences.
- Barlow’s Gully tenement covers the prolific Ursus fault that hosts the Torian Sterling Well discovery, Cerebus–Eclipse 112,000oz Au and the Centauri 81,300oz Au gold resources.
