Other Projects in New South Wales
Lachlan Fold Belt
As part of the Ardea Prospectus preparation, a significant gold prospect has been generated for the Lewis Ponds project around the Godolphin Fault, a shallow east-dipping domain boundary structure separating the Ordovician Macquarie Arc in the west from the Silurian Hill End Trough in the east. From southeast to northwest, the structure hosts gold mining centres and targets from McPhillamys, Springfield, Mt Shorter, Calula and Copper Hill East. This Godolphin Fault trend is held within Ardea’s tenement package, a 50km strike of continuous tenure abutting the McPhillamy’s deposit in the south and the Commonwealth (Silica Hill) deposit in the north.
Yeoval Porphyry Copper-Gold-Molybdenum-Rhenium Project (ELA5368, recommended for grant) (Ardea 100%)
Yeoval (ELA 5368) is located within the Macquarie Arc, 60km northeast of the Northparkes copper-gold mine. The tenement application covers an area of 138km² and is intensely mineralised with more than 60 historic copper workings trending in a north-easterly direction, along a 20km strike. The Ardea exploration target is a large tonnage porphyry copper-gold-molybdenum-rhenium system.
Mt Aubrey Epithermal Gold-Silver Project (ELA5369, recommended for grant) (Ardea 100%)
Mt Aubrey (ELA 5369) is located at the east contact of the Macquarie Arc Ordovician andesites some 30km northeast of Parkes and 30km southeast of Peak Hill.
The property was acquired by Ardea as an epithermal gold system.
Wiseman’s Creek Gold-Copper Project (ELA5378, recommended for grant) (Ardea 100%)
The Black Bullock prospect is located at Wiseman’s Creek, 35km southeast of Bathurst, NSW, and is an epithermal gold target.
Duckmaloi Tungsten prospect
Prospective for tungsten hosted within skarn-style mineralisation.
