Copperhole Creek

Copperhole Creek is located in Queensland within a window of Georgetown-Forsayth Metamorphics. The project features two styles of mineralization including Cu-Au/ Pb-Zn-Ag breccias and veins associated with regional shearing in Proterozoic metamorphics, as well as greisen style Sn-Mo-Cu mineralization hosted within Carboniferous granites. Nearby properties (Einasleigh Cu Mine & Chloe & Jackson Deposits) with resources show similar grades and styles of mineralization of those historically recorded within the license.

There are extensive historic workings across the license that have seen limited exploration (See Table 1 below for more details). Of particular interest is the Questend prospect described as having a 600m strike length. Questend has seen two historic drillholes, of which one intercepted 12m @ 3.27% Cu, 0.66% Zn, 51 g/t Ag, and 0.26% Sn. This historic drilling did not test for gold, and was never followed up.
