Tambourah Metals Ltd (ASX:TMB) has identified a coherent copper anomaly, 650m long x 350m wide, in the centre of the soil sampling grid over a magnetic target on E70/5796 at Goomalling (Sewell Project) in Western Australia.
The copper anomaly is coincident with elevated results in pathfinder and alteration geochemistry.
The final MMT from the Sewell Project has been modelled, interpreted and 3-D inversion models of the MMT data have been created. Several potential conductors were identified in the MMT survey results.
Compilation of historic soil sampling on E70/5755 (5km NW of Sewell) shows a correlation between elevated copper in soils and possible MMT conductors.
E70/5968 (5km SW of the Caravel Minerals Dasher Deposit) hosts two priority magnetic targets associated with copper anomalism in historic soil sampling. These results will be followed up with further UltraFines sampling programs with access negotiations continuing with land holders.
Sewell MMT Data
Processing and inversion modelling of the MMT data over the Sewell area identified several possible conductors. The strongest conductor is located approximately 19km north of Goomalling and is along strike from an airborne magnetic target.
Soil Sampling at Sewell Project
Assay results of the recent soil sampling over a priority magnetic target on E70/57961 has been contoured. The magnetic target identified has magnetic signatures and structures similar to those at Caravel Minerals deposits and is along strike from an EM conductor in the MMT data. 169 auger samples were collected across the target on a 50m x 100m grid. The samples were assayed for a full range of elements at Lab West using UltraFines assay methodology.
Historic soil sampling E70/5755 and E70/5968
Systematic Soil sampling at a spacing of 200m x 200m was undertaken by IGO in 2014 across what is now TMB Tenement E70/5755. This sampling was targeted for gold mineralization and weak gold anomalies were reported by IGO3. IGO assayed for a suite of elements and the assay results report a copper in soils anomaly present within E70/5755. This anomaly is coincident with possible conductors in the MMT data.
A small coherent soil anomaly is also present in historic WAMEX data over E70/59684. This anomaly is associated with a priority TMB magnetic target. These historic soil anomalies will be followed up with UltraFines soil sampling prior to first pass air core drilling.
WH Sth Structures and Magnetic Targets
The WH Sth project hosts regionally significant NW-SE trending structures as well as more localized NE-SW and N-S trending structures, all of which act together to control the regional Cu-Mo-Au mineralization and the priority magnetic targets.
From Goomalling to Meckering the TMB tenure has an uninterrupted strike length of 80km.
TMB will continue land holder access negotiations to facilitate:
• Infill soil sampling on E70/5755 and E70/5968
• Soil sampling of the MMT conductors at Sewell Project
• Soil sampling of the magnetic targets
• First pass air core drilling of the soil anomalies.
Next steps Across the wider Julimar Nth Project Area
As the second largest tenement holder in the Julimar district TMB is:
• In discussions with suitable contractors to undertake further airborne
electromagnetic surveying across the Mogumber and Yerecoin projects
• Continue ground EM testing of the MMT conductors prior to first pass RC drilling.
