The Bali Project - located in the Ashburton region of WA, has returned strong copper assays from recent rock chip surface sampling. A maiden electromagnetic (EM) programme will be undertaken prior to the end of 2018. The EM work is designed to highlight subsurface sulphide mineralisation which can be used to assist in targeting Bali’s copper potential with RC drilling.
The Warriedar Project - located in the Yilgarn Craton, includes a granted mining lease containing the historic Reids Ridge gold mine which will be drill tested down dip of the old workings. To the east, the Mount Laws Prospect is a 1.5 km mineralised trend defined by historic workings and past shallow RC and RAB drilling. Norwest has planned RC drilling of new walk-up gold targets along the Mt Laws trend identified from recent surface sampling and reinterpretation and modification of past exploration work.
The Arunta West project - prospective for iron oxide copper gold (IOCG). A 4km by 8km coincident gravity-magnetic anomaly at the North Dovers prospect is the target of four deep diamond drill holes. Norwest will be the first explorers to drill at North Dovers with the work scheduled for May next year.
The Marymia project - also located in the Yilgarn Craton, is situated near several world class mining operations including the Plutonic Gold Mine and the Degrussa Copper Mine. There are a number of outstanding gold and base metal targets scheduled to be RC drilled across the Marymia tenements prior to the end of 2018.
The Marriotts Nickel deposit - located in the Leonora and Leinster nickel belt contains 633,000t at 1.3% Ni. Remodelling of the deposit’s drill data is planned to upgrade the current Inferred resource into the Indicated and Inferred categories. Further work will include a toll treatment assessment of the deposit.
