Twin Hills Gold Project
The Twin Hills Project consists of a single granted exploration license (E29/950) located approximately 30 km north east of Menzies and 150km north of Kalgoorlie in the Eastern Goldfields of Western Australia. The tenement covers an area of approximately 30 km2 and extends over about 10 km of strike of the greenstone sequence that hosts the excised historical Twin Hills gold mine. The tenement covers the north and south extension of the shear zone which is the interpreted host of mineralisation at Twin Hills.
At Twin Hills the geology is interpreted to be a narrow north-northwest striking Archaean greenstone belt of amphibolite facies chert, metabasalt and ultramafic schist and felsic porphyry dykes, sandwiched between later intrusive granites. Three main fault sets crosscut both greenstones and granites.
Auger drilling at the Project completed in 2020 has defined three target areas associated with gold enrichments lying over structural intersections that are interpreted as prospective for lode gold. The anomalies are defined by auger results forming a coherent cluster at greater than 3 ppb Au against a background of results below the detection limit of 1ppb Au. Please refer Figure 4.

These combined target areas defined from both phase one and phase two auger drilling programs are in proximity to north-west trending de-magnetisation zones where they cross the north striking magnetic lineament that defines the Twin Hills Shear. The structures and anomalies are interpreted to potentially represent favorable structural intersections with gold anomalism potentially related to shoots of auriferous quartz lode.
A slimline RC drilling rig has been mobilized by the Company and has begun drilling 15 holes for 1,200m to test the three priority target areas. Results will be announced once assays are received from the laboratory, expected in early March 2021.
