Copper, zinc and gold mineralisation


Molloy Regional Copper Project Permit

EPM 27804 (17,180 hectares)

The EPM 27804 lies 50 km NW of Cairns, within the headwaters of the Mitchell River and comprises two discontinuous areas straddling the small Mount Molloy copper mine, where ore mined in the late 19th century averaged 8.7% copper.

The project is primarily targeting a similar Volcanic Massive Sulphide style copper, zinc and gold mineralisation hosted within the same permissive stratigraphy which extends from the Mount Molloy copper mine over 23km strike length within Hodgkinson Province rocks.

Historic aeromagnetic anomalies, coinciding with elevated copper and zinc stream geochemistry within this NNW-trending stratigraphic zone, represent immediate targets for further evaluation and higher resolution geophysical investigations.

The Machonachies Siding manganese occurrence, just under 8km south of the Mount Molloy copper-zinc mine, will also be assessed as an exploration target.
