The Harbutt Range Project is located 320km east of the town of Newman on the edge of the Great Sandy Desert in the Eastern Pilbara Region.
The Project comprises two granted Exploration Licences, namely E45/5294 and E45/5439. The Harbutt Range Project lies within the Rudall Complex of the Proterozoic-aged Paterson Orogen.
The project area is considered prospective for intrusive related copper-gold and sediment hosted base metal (copper-lead–zinc–silver) style mineralisation. Known prospects within the Harbutt Project include airborne electromagnetic related (Kaos, Control and Maxwell Prospects) and Induced Polarisation chargeability related Ninety-Nine, Anomaly A – E Prospects). Limited drilling has been completed, with exploration focusing on the Maxwell Prospect.
Drilling has intersected broad zones of pyrrhotite-pyrite ± chalcopyrite. Anomalous base metals were intersected; including 4m @ 0.23% Cu (BDRC007), 4m @ 0.16% Pb & 0.1% Zn (BDRC012), 8m @ 0.19% Zn (BDRC017) and 20m @ 0.13% Zn (BDRC020).
