Coppermine

HIGH GRADE COPPER POTENTIAL

  • The material within the workings comprises a sheared, deeply weathered siliceous gossanous horizon, displaying strong malachite and azurite alterations.
  • Historically the lease has been explored for copper associated with old workings.
  • Small scale workings have exploited a Malachitic ‘pod’ within an ultramafic/mafic extrusive suite.
  • The material within the workings comprises a sheared, deeply weathered siliceous gossanous horizon, displaying strong malachite and azurite alterations.
  • Limited drilling historically has failed to intersect an extension to the surface mineralisation, however there remains good potential for mineralisation beneath the surface occurrence.
  • In 2007 Jupiter Mines identified a geophysical anomaly covering the main shaft and surround that warrants further investigation.
  • Historically the lease has been explored for copper associated with old workings.
  • In 1974 a small RAB program targeted the extensions to the mineralised gossan at the surface. From within the shaft the gossan dips away in the opposite direction, hence the drills missed the target completely.
  • The shaft was dug to access high grade gold which is in a narrow quartz vein dipping @ 45 to the NW.
  • 1998 saw Pacmin (formerly Mount Edon and subsequently SOG) explore the area looking for Tarmoola look-a-likes. They rediscovered the historical copper occurrence and took samples.
