The Mount Hardy Project is located on the Tanami Highway, 300km north-west of Alice Springs and 20km west of the town of Yuendumu. The Project comprises several high-grade structurally-controlled precious and base metal oxide and sulphide targets generated from both surface geochemistry and EM/IP geophysical targeting.

Previous Exploration 

  • Copper field discovered in the 1930’s with sporadic small scale mining to the 1970’s
  • 900 line kilometre HELITEM survey completed, as well as IP and gravity surveys
  • 17 priority EM targets identified
  • Copper grades of +1% Cu returned from five prospects tested in initial drilling campaign

Prospectivity

  • Copper-rich polymetallic district
  • Eight EM anomalies remain to be tested by ground EM
  • Several regional structural targets requiring soil sampling and mapping
  • Four prospects require further drill testing
  • Outstanding potential to extend known areas of mineralisation using modern geophysical exploration tools

Planned Activities

  • Immediate base metal drill targets on four prospects, followed by prospect delineation work
  • Structural and EM target ground testing, to be followed by drilling
