The Mt Weary Gold Project is comprised of several Prospects associated with small intrusions and breccia bodies formed near the margin of the large Lawyer Granite intrusion complex. The Company completed a maiden drill program in 2022 where gold mineralisation is confirmed associated with induced polarity (IP) anomalies in ground geophysics.
The initial campaign of drilling by Many Peaks Minerals successfully identified higher tenor gold mineralisation at the Boggy Creek prospect area within the Mt Weary Gold Project area, and expanded the footprint of mineralisation identified in historical drilling. Mineralisation remains open in both directions along strike, including more than 2km of higher tenor surface anomalism yet to be tested.
Also, a substantially larger volume of favourable porphyry textured intrusions (diorite) is identified in step-out drilling than recognised in previous mapping and drilling. The diorite bodies identified are consistently associated with strong hydrothermal alteration and pyrite (+/- arsenopyrite) mineralisation.
