Company: White Cliff Minerals Limited
Status: Publicly Listed on the Australian Stock Exchange (ASX: WCN)
Activity: Exploring and developing several gold, nickel and copper deposits including:
Reedy South Gold Project (100%): The Project covers 272km2 of the highly prospective Cue goldfields, centred on the southern portion of the prolific Reedy Shear Zone, within the Meekatharra-Wydgee greenstone belt. The Project comprises one granted mining lease (M20/446) covering the historic underground workings of Pegasus and King Cole, a granted exploration and prospecting license (E20/938 & P20/2289) and four exploration license applications (E20/969, E20/971, E20/972 & E20/974). Reedy South is situated 40km north of Cue, via the Great Northern Highway and is 80km south of Meekatharra.
Midas Copper/Gold Project (100%): The Midas Copper-Gold Project consists of two wholly owned licenses, Table Top and Coolbro Creek on E45/5107 and E45/5112, both situated in the western Paterson Province, home to major projects such as Telfer and Nifty.
Ironstone Gold Project (100%): The project consists of 169km2 of the Merolia Greenstone belt consisting of the Ironstone, Comet Well and Burtville prospects. The project contains extensive basalt sequences that are prospective for gold mineralisation, including the Ironstone prospect where historical drilling has identified 24m at 8.6g/t gold.
Laverton Gold Project (100%): The project consists of one granted tenement (12km2) in the Laverton Greenstone belt. The Red Flag prospect is located 20km southwest of Laverton in the core of the structurally complex Laverton Tectonic zone immediately north of the Mt Morgan’s Gold Mine (3.5 Moz) and 7km northwest of the Wallaby Gold Mine (7 Moz).
Coronation Dam Cobalt Project (100%): The project consists of one tenement (16km2) in the Wiluna-Norseman greenstone belt 90km south of the Murrin Murrin nickel-cobalt HPAL plant. The tenement contains an Inferred Mineral Resource of 5.7 million tonnes at 1% nickel and 0.08% cobalt containing 56,700 tonnes of nickel and 4,300 tonnes of cobalt (ASX release 25 March 2019). Mineralisation is open along strike within an extensive ultramafic unit that contains zones of cobalt mineralisation associated with nickel mineralisation.
Ghan Well Cobalt Project (100%): The project consists of one tenement (39km2) in the Wiluna-Norseman greenstone belt 25km southeast of the Murrin Murrin nickel-cobalt HPAL plant. The tenement contains an extensive ultramafic unit with zones of cobalt mineralisation associated with nickel mineralisation. The cobalt grades range from 0.01% to 0.75% and occur within a zone of manganiferous oxides within the regolith profile.
Coglia Well Cobalt Project (100%): The project consists of two tenements (238km2) in the Merolia greenstone belt 50km south east of Laverton, Western Australia. The tenements contain extensive ultramafic units that host zones of cobalt mineralisation associated with nickel mineralisation. Recent drilling has identified extensive nickel and cobalt grades including 17 metres at 0.11% cobalt and 1.0% nickel (ASX release 18 June 2018).
Merolia Nickel Project (100%): The project consists of 325km2 of the Merolia Greenstone belt and contains extensive ultramafic sequences including the Diorite Hill layered ultramafic complex, the Rotorua ultramafic complex, the Curara ultramafic complex and a 51km long zone of extrusive ultramafic lavas. The intrusive complexes are prospective for nickel-copper sulphide accumulations possibly with platinum group elements, and the extrusive ultramafic rocks are prospective for nickel sulphide and nickel-cobalt accumulations.
