Forrest

80% Auris, 20% Westgold

The Forrest Project is located 6km south along strike from Westgold's Starlight VHMS intersection, comprising equivalent stratigraphic position to Horseshoe Lights Cu-Au deposit.

The project is host to a total JORC Compliant Copper Resource comprising Forrest and Wodger deposits of 2.4Mt at 1.7% Cu for 41,500t Cu metal, with copper mineralisation at Forrest and Wodger deposits remains open down dip and plunge.

Structural review of the Forrest Project, incorporating recent data collected from diamond drilling in progress to assist with future targeting

Forrest Deposit

Discovered in 2014 through re-assaying of gold focused drilling

RC and diamond drilling significant intercepts include;

  • FGDD001: 9.65m @ 5.00% Cu and 1.91g/t Au from 142.4m
  • FGDD003: 9.55m @ 2.25% Cu and 0.66g/t Au from 204.1m
  • FPRC022: 11m @ 4.83% Cu and 1.18g/t Au from 76m
  • FPRC029: 33m @ 1.25% Cu from 276m
  • FPDD002: 8.5m @ 1.06% Cu and 0.42g/t Au from 382m

Potential for plunge extensions to copper mineralisation

Regional Prospectivity

Regionally underexplored geological trend

IP targets identified within 4.5km of anomalous trend encompassing the Forrest and Wodger deposits.

Multiple untested geochemical, VTEM, Magnetic, gravity anomalies along the Big Billy – Wodger – Forrest trend

VHMS and gold potential in Narracoota Formation

Untested stratigraphy at depth under the Ravelstone Formation

Previous Air Core drilling completed between Wodger and Big Billy prospects returned several significant results including -

  • 14m @ 0.29% Cu from 28m to EOH
  • 8m @ 0.13% Cu from 24m
  • 12m @ 0.52% Cu from 36m

Further Air Core drilling planned to further evaluate IP target areas and anomalous drilling
