Sultan’s Thaduna Project, located 180km northeast of Meekatharra, in the emerging Thaduna exploration province, is prospective for gold, copper and other minerals. It comprises two granted tenements covering 22km2.
The Thaduna tenements are sandwiched between Sandfire Resources’ (ASX: SFR) Thaduna/Green Dragon Copper-Gold deposit, and the Brumby and Contessa Gold prospects under exploration by Lodestar Minerals (ASX: LSR) and in JV with Vango Mining Limited (ASX: VAN). The Thaduna/Green Dragon Copper-Gold deposit has a resource of 8.2Mt at 1.8% Cu, 3.7g/t Ag for 150,000t of copper and 963,000oz of silver (ASX: SFR Announcement, 2017), and is located 10km southwest of Project area.
The Thaduna Project lies over the western and eastern bounding structures to the Yerrida Basin and Mooloogool Sub-basin.
Sultan plans to undertake aircore and/or deeper percussion drilling at Thaduna to determine the project’s potential to contain structurally-hosted gold mineralisation and/or VMS-style base metal mineralisation.
