Auris Minerals: Home / Projects / Forrest


The Forrest region consists of 2 main prospects and new discovery targets.




Copper mineralisation at the Forrest Prospect was discovered in 2014 through re-assaying of previously gold focused drilling. Within the same year, RC and diamond drilling was completed to test an interpreted southerly plunge and identified copper mineralisation. Best intercetps include:

FGDD001: 9.65m @ 5.0% Cu and 1.91g/t Au from 142.4m,


Drilling at the Wodger Prospect has confirmed a VMS mineralised horizon within the modelled alteration halo at the Wodger Prospect. Observations throughout the drilling have been extremely encouraging, showing a wide zone of extremely weathered, hydrothermally altered siltstone with vuggy quartz which sits on the margins of the Ravelstone Formation sediments and the Narracoota Formation volcanic rocks.

Aircore holes WRAC013 and WRAC014 intersected visible malachite over several metres at the base of this hydrothermally altered sediment.
