The company is active at the Yalgoo projects around 400 kilometres north of Perth in WA with drilling of three priority targets beginning last month at the Warriedar West Prospect.
Tempest considers Yalgoo the forgotten goldfield, with world-class deposits every 10 kilometres, including high-grade gold, copper, zinc, tungsten and iron, and major infrastructure in place which represents a low-cost, high-impact exploration opportunity.
The drilling at Warriedar West is targeting intrusion-related gold system (IRGS) mineralisation.
Gold and trace element anomalies typical of IRG-style mineralisation are present in the project and it includes considerable nugget-rich free gold exploited in modern times by prospectors as well as high-grade gold in rock chips.
Tempest is also undertaking surface sampling and drill planning at other projects within its portfolio.
