Eastern Goldfields Projects
Duketon Mining holds tenements within the prospective Easter Goldfields Province lying outside the Duketon Greenstone Belt. These tenements include the Lake Lefroy, Cutters Luck and Diorite Hill Projects. These 100% owned tenements lie within the Eastern Goldfields Province which is highly prospective for gold, nickel and platinum group elements.Lake Lefroy and Cutters Luck Projects are located between Kalgoorlie and Kambalda in the Eastern Goldfields of Western Australia.
These projects each comprise a granted exploration licence over greenstone rock sequences within the Kalgoorlie Terrane. Greenstones of the Kalgoorlie Terrane are the most gold and nickel endowed rocks within the Eastern Goldfields Province of Western Australian which makes them some of the most mineral endowed rocks in the world.
Company exploration of these projects is at the early stage of data acquisition, compilation and evaluation (i.e. desk top studies). The litho-structural settings of these projects are prospective for both gold and nickel.
Diorite Hill is located approximately 20 km east of Laverton. The project consists of one exploration licence application over the eastern margin of the Merolia Greenstone Belt of the Eastern Goldfields Mineral Province. The Merolia Belt lies immediately south of the Duketon Greenstone Belt. The licence covers the major portion of a large layered mafic-ultramafic intrusive sill complex. Previous exploration at the Diorite Hill sill complex has identified platinoid, nickel and gold mineralisation. Further work following up on this anomalism will be undertaken once tenure has been granted.
