Kingfisher, Mick Well and Arthur River Project Locations.
The Kingfisher Project is located approximately 235km east of Carnarvon, in the Gascoyne region of Western Australia. The area is prospective for volcanogenic massive sulphide (VMS) style mineralisation and copper mineralisation is exposed in a series of shallow historical mining pits over a strike length of 2km.
Previous exploration at Kingfisher has included geophysical surveys, surface geochemical sampling and limited reverse circulation drilling, with significant drilling intercepts including 3 m @ 0.6% Cu (KFRC10) and rock chip results of 15.3, 6.3, 6.2, 5.9 and 3.4% Cu.
Mick Well Project
The Mick Well Project is located approximately 290km via road east of Carnarvon and immediately west of the Company’s Kingfisher Project in the Gascoyne Mineral Field.
Mineralisation at Mick Well outcrops as quartz reefs and gossanous ironstones which are up to 10m in width. Past exploration in the area is limited, with previous rock chip sampling showing results up to 10.6% Cu over a strike length of 1 km within a geological zone which extents for approximately 10km within the company’s tenure. Only two drill holes have been completed at Mick Well, with the best result being 11m @ 0.25% Cu from 118 m (MWDD001).

Arthur River Project
The Arthur River project is located approximately 50km northeast of the Gascoyne Junction, and approximately 200km east of Carnarvon. The project lies within the Gascoyne Complex and the geology of the area dominantly consists of quartzites, mafic amphibolites, ferruginous cherts, marbles and pegmatites.
Copper anomalism and historic workings are widespread through the project area, with historic rock chip samples returning results of up to 6.6% Cu.
