Exploration potential at Lennard Shelf

Since the late 1980s, the regional exploration in the Lennard Shelf Province has been majorly unnoticed despite being a host to substantial historic mines, Pillara and the Cadjebut Trend.

ALB’s Lennard Shelf Project includes four sub-projects, which stretch over an area of around 393 km2. The work undertaken by the Company to date has helped in delineating major ENE trending structures that are inferred to be the control of the zn-pb mineralisation.

Past explorers have not adequately tested the zinc and lead mineralisation confirmed at Devious, Extreme, and Chance. A new gossanous horizon has been identified at Prices Hill with more than 500m of exposed mineralisation.

With several prospects that warrant drill testing, ALB’s Lennard Shelf Project indicates a significant opportunity for the Company. These prospects are backed by historical drill intercepts and highly anomalous geochemical samples.

Presently, the Company has secured DMIR’s drilling approval. Meanwhile, the Company is also progressing negotiations on a heritage agreement with the GAC. Besides this, an anthropological survey is also being scheduled, which is fundamental for ALB’s maiden drilling Program.
