Feather Cap

100% Auris

The Feather Cap Project is prospective for both orogenic gold and Horseshoe Lights style Cu-Au VHMS mineralisation   Auris has two priority gold targets, being the Durack East and Feather Cap Prospects

Gold potential of the area is highlighted by Westgold Resources’ 112,000 ounce Durack Gold Resource west of Durack East and Sandfire significant gold intersections within Air Core drilling at Morck Well to the east.

Potential for 2.5km gold prospective trend at Durack East Prospect, of a total 5.7km inclusive of SFR Morck Well Air Core gold anomalism along strike to the east

Historic intersections in the west of Durack East include –

20m @ 3.01g/t Au incl 4m @ 10.7g/t Au (JR60)

35m @ 1.80g/t Au incl 8m @ 5.19g/t Au (JRB43)

High-grade gold intercept of 8m @ 5.44g/t Au from 87m including 1m @ 26.7g/t Au from 87m (DEAC0089) returned from initial recent Air Core drilling at Durack East Prospect.  Above high grade mineralisation is located 560m along strike to northwest of previous intersection 4m @ 0.69g/t Au from 141m including 2m @ 1.26g/t Au from 142m (DEAC0009 – returned within 2020 drill program), which supports Auris’ interpretation that gold mineralisation extends into the Feather Cap Project from the Morck Well Project (Sandfire earning 70%)

 

Preliminary interpretations indicate the intercept is associated with quartz veining within mafic lithologies of the Narracoota Formation, immediately to the south of an interpreted contact with sediments of the Ravelstone Formation
