 Acquisition of two Prospecting Licences

On 10 March 2021, Avenira updated on the acquisition of two Prospecting Licences- P53/1712 and P53/1713. These licences lie to the south of the Jundee South prospect and are located on the magnetic feature along which Yandal Resources Limited’s (ASX:YRL) Flushing Meadows gold deposit is located. The initial geological interpretation outlined similar stratigraphy, similar to the Flushing Meadows deposit.

Avenira will commence reconnaissance exploration on the newly acquired licences, and compilation of historical data and refining of geological interpretation.

Ongoing and future works on Jundee South Project

Currently, the resampling of the assays with gold grades greater than or equal to 0.1 g/t continues. Further, a geological interpretation on the Aircore drilling data has commenced and will be used for planning the upcoming RC drilling program. The RC drilling will also include the two targets identified during the Aircore drilling- MF02 and YaN11. The drilling rods will start spinning mid-year.

Subsequent to the quarter, Avenira has begun discussions with the Board of Tarkla Matuwa Piarku Aboriginal Corporation (TMPAC) to finalise the exploration access agreement for over 90% of the area under the Jundee South Project. Discussions have been positive and encouraging, but the process of finalising and executing the agreement along with field surveys, may take more time and could possibly delay the RC drilling programme.
