WALLABY ROCKS EL 6310
The Wallaby Rocks tenement of 34 units, 102 km² is reached from Sydney via the Great Western Highway to Lithgow and the road to Mudgee. The tenement is within The Lue-Apple Tree Flat Area of similar age and rock type to gold producing regions at Sofala. The Bowden’s silver deposit (125 million ounces) is to the northeast of the tenement is in Early Permian Rylstone Volcanics. Of particular interest are the Late Silurian age Dungeree and Windermere (acid) Volcanics, which contain the Roberts, Princes, Coopers and Mount Margaret high grade gold deposits (37 g/t gold).
- Known gold–copper deposits in quartz veins in shears are indicative of an auriferous metallogenic province with potential for other styles of mineralisation such as epithermal stockwork, buried cupola, skarn and disseminated gold.
- Five geochemical targets are identified that are being tested by geological mapping and geochemistry, drainage and rock chip sampling.
- 216 sites have been visited and 368 multi-media samples collected including rock outcrop and float samples, magnetic concentrate samples, cyanide leach gold and stream sediment samples.
- Gold and pathfinder elements coincident anomalies indicate a hard rock lode mineralisation source yet to be defined.
