Western Australian based metals & mining player listed on ASX, Great Southern Mining Limited (ASX:GSN) has been actively engaged in the advancement of its 100% -owned Cox’s Find Gold Project.
GSN is looking forward to the expansion at its Cox’s Find Gold Project through an application that has been made by the Company for a highly strategic tenement E38/3476.
GSN believes that the tenement shall be a significant addition to the prospective tenure and probable infrastructure space to its Cox’s Find Gold Project located near Laverton, Western Australia.
GSN-owned Cox’s Find Gold Project is considered to be a shear hosted Archaean orogenic gold deposit, where an initial review of the Project translated to the outstanding prospect for the Cox’s Find Mine to contain high-grade remnant mineralisation adjacent the current workings and also high-grade ore beyond the current workings.
Most recently, GSN initiated a tenement wide shallow Geochemical Aircore drilling program on a 100-metre by 50-metre grid pattern over the full project area.
- The program is targeted to offer a further layer of geological information and conclude the geochemical dataset over the complete area of the Project.
- The Company looks forward to using the data to facilitate targeting further Cox’s Find style mineralised systems.
GSN’s Geochemical Aircore drilling program at its Cox’s Find Project is planned to:
- Map out mineralisation and structural trends throughout the project area.
- Deliver a full geochemical dataset that shall help surface lithological interpretation.
- Recognize the scope and aim of hydrothermal alteration with a view to find gold mineralisation that does not outcrop at surface.
Over the years, GSN has been actively engaged in tracing and evaluating opportunities to make a significant addition to its quality project portfolio. The current application for the highly strategic tenement is expected to facilitate in the expansion programs along the strike at the Project and provide potential infrastructure space for the future.
