Norwest’s Portfolio of WA Gold & Base Metals Projects

  • Norwest-3095-Photos-Project-Overview-v1

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 was undertaken prior to the end of 2018. Southern Geoscience is processing the EM data with completion scheduled for March. The rsults will are expected to highlight subsurface sulphide mineralisation which will assist in targeting Bali’s copper potential with RC and diamond drilling.

The Warriedar Project - located in the Yilgarn Craton, the project 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 recent surface sampling, historic workings and past shallow RC and RAB drilling. In December 2018, Norwest has completed a 1,320 metre RC drilling programme at Mount Laws with results indicating mineralisation and tenor is improving at depth. Follow-up drilling is scheduled for early in the new year. 

The Ninghan Project - consisting of four tenements, was acquired together with Norwest’s 100% purchase of the Warriedar project tenements. The Ninghan tenements are prospective for gold and base metals and are located approximately 40 kms southeast of the Warriedar package and 20 kms west of the former Gold Rush settlement of Paynes Find.  

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 several deep diamond drill holes. Norwest will be the first explorer to drill at North Dovers with the work scheduled to commence May 2019. 

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 in March 2019. 

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.
