PROJECT 4 ESPERANCE

Location for the Esperance Silica Exploration Project

The ESPERANCE Project consists of three tenements, E63/2138 (pending) and E63/2139 (granted) along with E63/2137 (granted). Two of the tenements are approximately 110km from the port, situated between the two small townsites of Salmon Gums and Grass Patch in the Shire of Esperance. These tenements are a combination of Crown and private landholdings.

The third tenement (E63/2137) is just 20km from port.

At this time all tenements are either under-developed or undeveloped.


Details for the Esperance Silica Exploration Project

Dune Buggy

Exploration of the Dune Buggy site has been very sparse, with only reconnaissance work being recorded. It remains unexplored and is at this time is an area of interest for future investigation. The Project area is located on Crown land and once approvals are received, the Company intends to undertake a progressive exploration program starting with sampling, analysis and metallurgical investigations, and subject to these results progressing to a far more extensive program of drilling and further works.

Pink Bark
100% E63/2139 Granted 26/10/2021
100% E63/2138 Application lodged 02/09/2021
Shire of Esperance, Western Australia

The area of interest is located on a combination of Crown land and privately owned freehold land. Historical drill hole data shows the existence of “sand intercepts” up to 14m deep and averaging 5m – 7m in thickness. No exploration has been conducted to date other than desktop geological interpretation and visual inspection at surface.

Dune Buggy
100% E63/2137 Granted 04/11/2021
Shire of Esperance, Western Australia

The area of interest is located on a Crown land. No exploration has been conducted to date other than desktop geological interpretation and visual inspection at surface.

Pink Bark

Exploration on the Pink Bark tenements has been limited to a series of air-core holes drilled in 2009 by Triton Gold Ltd targeting gold mineralisation in the basement rock. These holes intersected overlying sand horizons and the geological logs have recorded sand thickness up to 14 metres deep from surface, but no assay results for silica content were completed. Accordingly, it remains unexplored for silica sands and is at this time is an area of interest for future investigation.

The Project areas are located on both Crown land and private land. Private landowners will be required to enter into an Exploration Agreement with the Company before any future works can be undertaken, this will be at their sole discretion. As at this time no such agreements have been sought or received. Should the Company receive the consent of the landowners, then once these approvals are received, the Company intends to undertake a progressive exploration program starting with sampling, analysis and metallurgical investigations, and subject to these results progressing to a far more extensive program of drilling and further works.
