Argent Minerals Annual Report 2017
The Company's Kempfield, West Wyalong and Sunny Corner project assets are situated in the Lachlan Orogen in New South Wales, Australia, a richly mineralised geological terrain which extends from northern NSW and through Victoria into Tasmania.
The first gold discovery in Australia was in 1851, at a location within the Lachlan Orogen. This important find led to the subsequent gold rushes, the discovery of the Holterman Nugget in 1872, and the formation of nearby townships of Bathurst and Orange.
Today the Lachlan Orogen hosts world class deposits including one of the largest underground copper-gold mines in the southern hemisphere, Newcrest's Cadia Valley Operations.
The recently acquired Loch Lilly project is located in the Loch Lilly - Kars Belt approximately 80 kilometres south of Broken Hill, a new province where significant potential has been identified that is analogous in age and composition to the Mount Read Volcanics of Western Tasmania, which hosts several world-class deposits.
