Applies for New Licence Areas at the Highly Prospective Norseman-Lake Cowan Project
Canberra, May 3, 2017 AEST (ABN Newswire) - Alt Resources Ltd (ASX:ARS) is pleased to announce the Norseman-Lake Cowan Project as a new acquisition to the Company's portfolio of assets. The Project comprises three strategically located exploration tenements; E63/1842, E63/1843 and E63/1849 (see Figure 1 in the link below). These three contiguous tenements lie on several of the most significant structural corridors of the Norseman Gold Field, including the Mission Fault, Mt Barker Fault, Wheel Fault, Fram Island Fault and the Mission Sill. The tenement package straddles the Jimberlana Dyke to the north and south and lies adjacent to two Lake Cowan projects drilled historically by Western Mining in the 90's.

A significant portion of the new licence areas lies underneath the salt lake, Lake Cowan (see Figure 2 in the link below) however, the major mineralised structures in the area, such as the Mission Fault, lie beneath this lake. The Company considers the Norseman-Lake Cowan Project to be historically underexplored due to the occurrence of the salt lake. Modern exploration techniques and drilling equipment alleviate this problem. Alt Resources intends to vigorously pursue the along-strike continuity of mineralised structures beneath Lake Cowan.

The tenements are under application with the WA Department of Minerals and Petroleum (DMP). The Company has negotiated an Agreement for Heritage Protection with the Ngadju Native Title Aboriginal Corporation. This will expedite the granting of the tenements pursuant to the DMP requirements and the provisions of the Aboriginal Heritage Act, NTA and the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Heritage Protection Act 1984 (Cth).

The Norseman-Lake Cowan Project area is in close proximity to the Norseman Gold Field, which historically produced in excess of 5 million ounces of gold. The Norseman Gold Field has largely been held by the Central Norseman Gold Company (CNGC)/Tulla Group as a private entity since entering voluntary liquidation in 2012. The previous owners, Croesus, acquired the project from Western Mining in 2002. Since holding the Norseman asset, CNGC have undertaken very little exploration drilling at the project which is estimated to cover some 1,500 square miles and contains a significant number of underexplored prospect areas.

Alt Resources is currently undertaking an extensive review of all historical open file exploration data and will provide details relating to planned exploration at the completion of this historical review.
