ALB’s Leinster Project spans 42 km2 in a globally renowned base-metal and gold province and consists of one exploration licence application (E36/1005).

Historically, the region has witnessed mostly shallow (<100m) drilling, where both nickel and gold mineralised intercepts remain poorly tested at depth through RC or diamond drilling.

Upcoming and current exploration work  

The Company is contemplating to execute an electromagnetic survey (MLTEM), or gradient array induced polarisation/resistivity survey (GAIP) at the south of the Weebo deposit and north of the Horn trend. These are expected to help in identifying possible conductors down the prolific strike of ultramafic rocks.

Furthermore, the Company believes that there is room to enhance the understanding of the controls on gold mineralisation throughout the district.

DETAILS ON IPOAlbion Resources (ASX:ALB) all set to list on ASX amid escalating zinc prices

As per Albion, gold mineralisation is related to late extensional structures formed in greenstones adjoining granite domes and remains restricted to intrafolial shear zones.

Now, the Company has initiated a review of the regolith setting and previous surface exploration comprising geological, geochemical, and geophysical datasets.

ALB owns a set of significantly prolific land assets that include high-grade base metal projects that suggest a major opportunity for the Company to make additional discoveries.
