This property may be considered to have potential for extensions of the four main north/south striking regionally recognized zones: Jubilee, Berringa-Staffordshire, Corindhap-Dereel, and Pinchgut gully. There is a lack of reported hard rock mining for the area, however supposition is that the gold in the prolific deep leads mined were sourced locally. Low level gold and arsenic in samples taken from road cuttings where quartz reef was exposed, suggest hard rock mineralisation is present.
The lack of coherent exploration within the tenement, and the surficial cover masking underlying geology, indicate the property is yet to be properly tested. In a similar model to the other properties, the application of soil sampling techniques such as MMI, which allow evaluation below the cover, may help to define reef systems and their relationship to the structural evolution of the region.
Tightly spaced east west soil sampling will provide cost effective and rapid indications of any potential north/south trending lode systems. On the back of positive results, further geophysical methods may be applied and from this, it is anticipated that stratigraphic diamond drilling will be a next step.
