The company is planning to conduct limited non-ground disturbing work prior to access agreements under a Miner’s Right as soon as weather and access conditions allow.

Milli Milli Dome Project

The project is adjacent to an area where a substantial alluvial mine sought permission to mine surface gravels eroded from Hardey Formation conglomerates that is located inside the national Park at Milli Mill dome.

Historical surface sampling returned up to 18.35 g/t gold. 65% of 17 samples of gravel from 11 locations contained gold. However, mining was denied as gravels were inside national Park boundary.

Entire Milli Milli Dome Project remains virgin ground

Charles Murphy, managing director, said “If the gravels eroded from conglomerate inside the National Park were allowed to be mined over 30 years ago, adjacent conglomerate beds located outside the Park and at other Domes in the area would have been thoroughly explored.

“As it were, the gravels were left unmined and the entire Milli Milli Dome Project remains virgin ground.

“The team has done exceptionally well to identify a number of opportunities with mapped conglomerates and surrounding cover and peg this ground amongst the conglomerate gold ground rush that occurred throughout the Pilbara.”

East Rocklea Dome Project

This project includes 1.5-kilometre strike of unexplored outcropping Mount Roe Basalt with substantial potential along the strike length.

Strategic Elements’ prospecting permits are sandwiched between those of Novo Resources (CVE:NVO) and FMG Ltd.

Exploration and prospecting licences in application phase

Strategic Elements will also explore the West Rocklea Dome Project and the Bellary Dome Project in the West Pilbara.

All of the company’s exploration and prospecting licences are in the application phase.

The company has passed through the objection periods on each application and has come to an agreement with some of the objecting parties.
