Norwest is a WA Gold &
The Company is currently focused on two key WA assets including the 100% owned Marymia East Gold Project located near the large Plutonic Gold Mine 200kms east of Newman and the Arunta West Gold-Copper Project located 600 kms west of Alice Springs in WA near the NT boarder.
The Marymia East Project comprises a 266km² land package across two main areas, being Bulgera and Marymia, within a +6.5moz gold district boasting numerous walk-up drill targets and hosting a near-surface gold resource of 2.92Mt grading 1.0g/t for 93,880ozs.
At Bulgera mining ceased in 2004 after a short period of exploiting near-surface gold ore for processing at the nearby Plutonic gold plant. Historic exploration, development and mining database shows multiple gold lodes extending below the shallow open cut pits and along the 5-kilometre strike of the sheared greenstone package. Norwest’s 2020-21 drilling programs include targeted ~250m deep RC holes designed to test for extensions to known gold mineralisation by drilling +150 vertical metres below the three-existing shallow Bulgera open pits.
To the south, the Company’s Marymia tenements abut Lodestar’s Ned’s Creek gold prospect where gold mineralisation is focused along the “Contessa Granite” contact. The Contessa Granite contact appears to extends through ~10km of untested Norwest Marymia ground. Norwest’s has aircore drilling programs planned to test for extensions to the Ned’s Creek gold mineralisation along the Contessa granite contact in early 2021.
Work on Arunta West Gold-Copper Project recently included an independent review of the geochemical and drill data collected by Norwest and past explorers. The study identified 5 (five) high priority “Areas of Interest” for IOCG & gold mineralisation across the project tenements including the newly granted, highly prospective E80/5362 tenement. In 2021, these areas will be tested by infill multi-element soil sampling to highlight potential walk-up drill targets.
