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 geochemistry and geophysics, including the advanced EM1 Prospect.

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 in 2013
  • 17 priority EM targets identified
  • Copper grades of +1% Cu returned from five prospects tested in initial drilling campaigns by TNG Limited in 2013 and Todd River in 2017

EM1 and Browns

  • Copper and zinc-rich polymetallic discovery at EM1 in 2018
  • Drilling intersections at EM1 include:
    • 9.15m @4.5% Cu, 8.8% Zn, 7.6% Pb,182 g/t Ag in hole MHDD0031A
    • 13.45m @ 15.9% Zn, 0.9% Cu, 5.75% Pb, 83 g/t Ag in hole MHDD0021A.
  • Multiple untested EM anomalies remain along strike from the EM1 Prospect
  • Drilling intersection of 7m @ 1.8% Cu at Browns including Cu grades up to 3.9%, yet to be followed up
  • Outstanding potential to extend known areas of mineralisation using modern geophysical exploration tools

Planned Activities

  • Further RC and diamond drilling at EM1
  • Additional ground based Moving Loop EM on the western Corridoor
  • Structural and EM target ground testing, to be followed by drilling
