Location & Infrastructure
The 57.4 km2 Red Setter Project is located only 13 km south-west of Newcrest Mining’s Telfer Gold Mine and about 60 km west of Newcrest and Greatland Gold’s Havieron discovery.
Limited historical work has been completed on the area to date. Any known recorded work predates the recent BHP Winu and Newcrest and Greatland Gold Havieron discoveries.
A majority of the drilling has failed to penetrate the shallow Permian cover in the area, which is estimated to be around 100m in depth on Red setter compared to the ~400m Permian cover at Havieron.
3 deeper RC drillholes, drilled by Encounter Resources with EIS support from the WA Government in the vicinity of, but adjacent to some of the magnetic anomaly, penetrated the Permian in 2 holes indicating an approximate depth of cover under 100m in this area at least.
These holes returned low geochemical response but showed evidence of alteration assemblages of albite and calcite with similarities to the system at the Havieron area.
