The prospect hosts Corella formation’s (Eastern Fold Belt) highly sheared and altered calc-silicate rocks. It lies in proximity (lies within 9km) to three recent discoveries by Carnaby Resources, which includes:

  • Nil Desperandum lying 7 km South-West, 41m @ 4.1% copper
  • Lady Fanny lying 5km East-West, 68m @ 2.4% copper
  • Mount Hope lying 8 km North-West, 60 m @ 3.1% copper

An extensive coincident magnetic-chargeable-resistive-soil (copper/cobalt) anomaly was delineated during the early 2000s based on the work completed by the CJV.

Additionally, the coincident anomalies made CJV opt for a nine-hole 2,230m of reverse circulation and diamond drilling program during 2007/2008. The drilling program, which was entirely orientated towards the east, has intercepted large zones of copper-cobalt mineralisation:

  • 52m @ copper: 0.22% & cobalt: 382ppm (from 32m) including:

23 m @ copper: 0.3% & cobalt: 626ppm (from 33m),

  • 40m @ copper: 0.21% & cobalt: 309ppm (from 92m), &
  • 20m @ copper: 0.20% & cobalt: 286ppm (from 94m)
