These deposits are open along strike and at depth. Metallurgical test work indicated high gold recoveries averaging 98% overall.
The Company also identified potentially economic gold mineralisation at the Ironstone and East Burtville Gold prospects near Laverton in Western Australia.
A review of the Company's existing nickel-cobalt projects revealed that Ghan Well contained potentially economic cobalt mineralisation which is open laterally and along strike.
