The Mt Boggola Project is located 60km to the south of Paraburdoo within the Ashburton Region.
The Project comprises of granted Exploration Licences E08/2996 and E083269 and a pending Exploration Licence Application E08/3458.
Newcrest completed drilling at the Charlie Creek Prospect with anomalous copper results intersected, including 4m @ 1.56% Cu from 32m and 4m @ 2.32% Cu from 12m. A detailed review of historic data identified a number of high-grade rock chip samples from previous explorers that had not been followed up with any further work. Northern Star completed rock chip sampling campaigns designed to follow up and validate previous results. Several malachite-rich shear zones and moderately dipping quartz breccia bodies were identified. Several of these exhibited significant gold and copper mineralisation.
Project highlights include:
High grade rock chips from area with peaks of 43.1g/t Au, 119g/t Ag and 68% Cu.
Previous limited drilling under malachite-quartz outcrops returned 4m @ 2.32% Cu from 12m (hole PB13) and 4m @ 1.56% Cu from 32m (hole PB09).
Outcropping malachite, cuprite and chalcocite zones.
No modern geophysics over the project area until a helicopter VTEM survey in May 2021 over E08/2996. Ground fixed loop EM was completed in July 2021 highlighting 3 high quality EM anomalies to the northwest of E08/2996.
