What were the findings of Due diligence?
The findings from the recent field due diligence at Belgravia further confirmed the highly prospective geology within the project.
Major field findings as part of technical due diligence, include:
- Belgravia lies in a very fertile metallogenic province, where copper-gold porphyry deposits typically occur in clusters, providing considerable potential for more discoveries;
- Intense proximal albitisation and silica-saturation observed, similar to zonation seen at Newcrest’s Cadia East Mine by experienced porphyry geologist and mining engineer Mr Ian Cooper;
- Large-scale and pervasive alteration identified, particularly at the Bell Valley Target, which lies over the eastern parts of the Copper Hill Igneous Complex;
- Bella Prospect, a doughnut-shaped magnetic pattern considered characteristic of a porphyry intrusion, lies within 1km of noted alteration;
- Exceptionally located with the recently upgraded Mitchell Highway providing direct access to the Belgravia Project from the regional centre of Orange and township of Molong.
What’s next for KTA?
KTA has started planning for the next stage of ground-based exploration and is now working with an experienced NSW technical operations team on detailed target generation. It is expected that the acquisition will be completed by late November 2019.
KTA have appointed Rangott Mineral Exploration Pty Ltd, led by Ian Cooper, a resource development geologist with a deep understanding of the Lachlan Ford Belt and alkaline porphyry Cu+Au±Mo and skarn Cu+Au+Fe deposits and part of the discovery and delineation of substantial resources at the Cadia Quarry and Cadia East deposits.
