Gold & Base Metals
10kms East of Bulgera
Marymia East Project
Norwest’s Marymia East Project (84%) is a joint venture with Riedel Resources Limited (16%) and comprises two granted exploration tenements covering a total area of 230 square kilometres. The project is situated just 10 kilometres south of the Company’s Bulgera project, 40 kilometres east of the Plutonic Gold Mine, and 200 kilometres north of Meekatharra. Marymia East is bisected by the Jenkins fault – a regional structure associated with several base metal deposits including the DeGrussa copper-gold operation 70kms to the southwest.
Norwest has undertaken several drilling programs at Marymia East project targeting areas prospective for gold & base metals. Results include:
- 28m @ 0.9% Pb (inc. 8m @ 2.5% Pb) from 28m
- 6m @ 0.7% Zn (inc. 2m @ 1.5% Zn) from 28m
- 40m @ 0.18% Ni from 4m
- 4m @ 2.5g/t Au from 32m
In early 2022 Norwest undertook a comprehensive review of the historical geological database of the Marymia East project. It was noted that large areas tested by surface sampling and shallow RAB drilling may have been misinterpreted due to a deep silcrete cap ‘masking’ much of the potential gold & base metal anomalism. In Q2 2022 Norwest will retest several anomalous zones by aircore drilling to blade refusal across several gold & base metal targets.
More recently Norwest aircore drilled two targets to blade refusal. Aircore drilling at NWM-1 & NWM-2 will target gold & base metals near the Jenkins fault – a regional structure associated with several base metal projects including the DeGrussa copper-gold project ~75kms to the southwest.
Aircore drilling will target 1) Cu-Pb anomalism at the Baumgarten area (NWM-3) where past RAB drilling tested only for gold and 2) to the south (NWM-4) where shallow RAB drilling returned 589 ppm Cu & 1130 ppm Pb.
