The Mt Vernon Project is located in the southwestern portion of the Pilbara region, approximately 130 kilometres south of Paraburdoo in Western Australia. The Project comprises a single exploration license which covers an area of approximately 463 km2.
The project area spans a wide cross-section of the Edmund and Collier Groups of the Bangemall Supergroup. These sedimentary rocks include numerous occurrences of base metal mineralisation, including variations of sediment hosted zinc–lead–silver mineralisation, and structurally controlled copper–zinc mineralisation, including the Abra Base Metal Deposit (owned by Galena Mining, ASX.G1A) and the Newman Base Metal Deposit (owned by Marindi Metals, ASX.MZN).
A number of targets for stratabound zinc-lead-silver and structurally controlled copper-gold mineralisation have been identified within the Mt Vernon project area. The Company plans to evaluate these in light of previous exploration and prioritise those for exploration.
