Great Boulder Resources Ltd Snapshot

Great Boulder Resources is a new mineral exploration company, with a primary focus on exploration, discovery and delineation of nickel-copper-cobalt and gold resources within the Eastern Goldfields Region of Western Australia.

YAMARNA – MT VENN AND EASTERN MAFIC COMPLEX
THE YAMARNA PROJECT IS LOCATED APPROXIMATELY 130 KILOMETRES EAST OF LAVERTON, AND APPROXIMATELY 30 KILOMETRES WEST OF THE GRUYERE GOLD DEPOSIT IN THE EASTERN GOLDFIELDS DISTRICT OF WESTERN AUSTRALIA.

Great Boulder Resources’ Mt Venn Project contains the Mt Venn Ni-Cu-Co discovery and the highly prospective Eastern Mafic Complex. The Mt Venn and Eastern Mafic Complex are interpreted to represent large scale copper-nickel-cobalt magmatic systems with the following key points:

  • Sulphide mineralisation discovered over several kilometres at along the western margin of the Mt Venn complex and remains open in all directions.
  • Multiple, parallel lenses of copper-nickel-cobalt mineralisation have been identified. High grade copper has been intersected along the footwall contact at Mt Venn.
  • The recently identified Eastern Mafic complex resembles a very large ‘pipe-like’ intrusion.
  • Airborne EM flown over the Eastern Mafic Complex have identified multiple late-time conductors, indicative of a bedrock source.
  • Aircore geochemistry confirms a strong correlation between the EM conductors and copper-nickel mineralisation.

Under the Yamarna Joint Venture Agreement, the Company has the right to earn a 75% interest in the Yamarna Project by funding exploration expenditure of $2,000,000 over a 5 year period.

TARMOOLA
THE TARMOOLA PROJECT IS LOCATED APPROXIMATELY 40 KILOMETRES NORTH-WEST OF LEONORA, JUST WEST OF THE KING OF HILLS GOLD MINE (FORMERLY KNOWN AS TARMOOLA) OPERATED BY SARACEN RESOURCES LIMITED AND THE GWALIA UNDERGROUND GOLD MINE OPERATED BY ST BARBARA LIMITED.

Under the Tarmoola Joint Venture Agreement, the Company has the right to earn a 75% interest in the Tarmoola Project by funding exploration expenditure of $1,400,000 over a 5 year period.

Historically overlooked, the land was pegged by EGMC as a conceptual large-scale gold project highlighted by a large regional geochemical pathfinder anomaly which also incorporates the King of the Hills and Sons of Gwalia gold deposits. The Tarmoola Project lies in the same geological setting as these deposits, being a northern extension to a regional granite-greenstone terrane contact.

BALAGUNDI
THE BALAGUNDI PROJECT IS A STRATEGIC ADVANCED GOLD PROJECT LOCATED APPROXIMATELY 20KM EAST OF THE KALGOORLIE SUPER PIT IN THE EASTERN GOLDFIELDS OF WESTERN AUSTRALIA.

Under the Balagundi Joint Venture Agreement, the Company has the right to earn a 75% interest in the Balagundi Project by funding exploration expenditure of $1,000,000 over a 5 year period.

Several historic gold mines are located on and around the project area, including the high-grade Mount Bellew underground gold mine.

This project has been privately held since 1986 and has significant strike extensive historical gold workings highlighting the potential for a large gold system to be discovered. The Balagundi Project has only been partially drill tested, with significant potential remaining for the discovery of gold resources.

Significant historic drilling intersections include:

  • 24m grading 19.1g/t gold from surface;
  • 4m grading 40.4 g/t gold from 99m downhole; and
  • 12m grading 15.2g/t gold from 36m downhole.

Historical gold workings expose several gold-bearing quartz vein systems extending through the Balagundi Project area over strike lengths of several hundred metres. Four arsenic-gold trends evident in soil geochemistry highlight the main mineralised trends in the project area. The project comprises a large-scale structural duplex which has been intruded by gabbroic sills, known to be significant hosts for gold mineralisation in the Eastern Goldfields.

During late 2016-early 2017, Great Boulder Resources completed two phases of RC drilling at the Mt Bellew North and Mt Bellew East prospects to test mineralisation extensions. These drill programs have highlighted the potential of the Balagundi project with both prospects remaining open.

At Mt Bellew North, gold mineralisation is largely confined to a sequence of northwest trending mafic-sedimentary lithological contacts (+/- quartz veining).  The presence of northeast cross-cutting structures also appears to be an important mineralisation control, particularly as the Mt Bellew North and East trends appear to be offset by a significant northeast structure.  Mineralisation remains open at the intersection of these structures and the intention is to extend drilling along both of these trends.

BROADWOOD
THE BROADWOOD PROJECT IS SITUATED BETWEEN THE HISTORICAL BINDULI GOLD MINING CENTRE AND THE GOLDEN MILE/KALGOORLIE SUPER PIT IMMEDIATELY ALONGSIDE THE TOWNSHIP OF KALGOORLIE.

Under the Broadwood Joint Venture Agreement, the Company has the right to earn a 75% interest in the Broadwood Project by funding exploration expenditure of $500,000 over a 5 year period.

The Company is targeting significant Archaean lode gold mineralisation in an area which has undergone minimal effective modern exploration.

The Broadwood Project has several major north-east trending fault sets cut across the project area and which are strike extensions to locally important ore controlling structures at both the Golden Mile and Binduli.

The Archaean bedrock sequences at the Broadwood Project are overlain by a variety of surficial regolith deposits, with this transported cover likely to have hindered historical exploration efforts.


JUNDEE SOUTH
THE JUNDEE SOUTH PROJECT IS LOCATED EAST OF WILUNA IN THE EASTERN GOLDFIELDS DISTRICT OF WESTERN AUSTRALIA, APPROXIMATELY 10 KILOMETRES ALONG STRIKE FROM THE JUNDEE GOLD MINE OPERATED BY NORTHERN STAR RESOURCES LIMITED.

The Company owns 100% of the Jundee South Project which was privately held for over 10 years and was acquired by the Company in May 2016. A previous holder of the Jundee South Tenement retains a 0.5% net smelter return royalty on any gold produced from the project.

The host stratigraphy of the Jundee gold deposits and its mineralising structures extend southwards through the area of the Company’s Jundee South Project. Multiple structures analagous to those at the newly discovered Ramone deposit (Northern Star Resources) are interpreted from geophysical and mapping data providing exciting new exploration targets.
