Red Gate Gold Project
The Red Gate Project is a gold project located approximately 140km north of Kalgoorlie, the project is held within 1 granted Exploration Licence covering a total area of 145.2km2
The project has had targeted historic exploration by previous tenement holders. Historic work predominantly focused on the Porphyry North prospect, this included RAB, AC and RC drilling targeting gold. On a more regional note there has been numerous airborne and ground geophysical surveys.
Our exploration shows that mineralisation encountered an intimate relationship between the alteration, fold hinges and gold.
The Red Gate Project Tenements and prospects on interpreted geology.
The Prospects at Red Gate are detailed below.
Porphyry West has shown gold mineralisation associated with quartz veining and pyrite at the lower contact of a folded intrusive and mafic rocks. The initial RC program focused on follow-up drilling of best historical intersections and testing new Prospects. Drilling by the Company returned exceptional results including:
- 23m at 3.82g/t Au from 14m,
including 5m at 14.29g/t Au from 27m
- 1m at 5.75g/t Au from 15m
- 24m at 1.04g/t from 42m
- 1m at 21.35g/t from 80m
- 10m @ 1.19g/t Au from 52m,
including 1m @ 5.51g/t Au from 58m
- 10m at 1.4g/t Au from 66m
- 4m @ 1.08g/t from 149m
- 8m @ 0.95g/t from 4m
(Note all widths are down-hole width, true width not known)
Historical work at Porphyry North identified a small contiguous zone on mineralisation around two historical shallow shafts. The drilling is constrained to a small zone that is well defined. Drilling by the Company has extended the strike length of mineralisation.
To date a total strike length of 900m has delineated extensions outside Porphyry West and Porphyry North, results from this included:
- 1m @ 2.83g/t Au from 41m
- 4m at 2.55g/t Au from 110m
- 1m @ 3.06g/t from 47m
- 3m @ 3.26g/t from 64m,
including 1m @ 8.21g/t Au from 66m
Historical work has identified a narrow zone of gold mineralisation that extends over 600m. Structural modelling will take place to target potential zones of dilation and thickening of mineralisation.
Grunters was identified as a soil geochemistry anomaly that received its first drilling in November 2021. The drilling intersected granites with some quartz veining and minor pyrite, the best results in this greenfield drilling included:
- 8m at 0.57g/t Au from 20m down-hole in hole RGRC016
- 4m at 0.36g/t Au from 32m down-hole in hole RGRC015
