The company has discovered a large mineral system indicative of an iron oxide copper gold deposit (IOCG) at the Copper Blow Project.

To date, two styles of mineralisation related to this system have been identified.

One is a magnetic ironstone-hosted copper-gold style being the Copper Blow shear zone.

Copper Blow part of a much larger mineral system

The company believes it is clear that copper-gold mineralisation located in ironstone at Copper Blow is part of a much larger mineral system.
