The Table Top tenement (E45/5107) has surface geology which is approximately 80% outcrop, predominantly comprising Meso to Neoproterozoic Coolbro Sandstone with minor remnant Permian Paterson Formation. The Coolbro Sandstone forms the basal unit of Yeneena Basin which overlies Paleoproterozoic granitic gneisses (orthogneisses) and metasediments (paragneisses) of the Rudall Complex (Williams and Bagas, 1999). The Yeneena Basin-Rudall Complex unconformity is exposed near the Kintyre deposit and doesn’t outcrop within E45/5107.
Multiple orogenic events have resulted in complex folding of the Proterozoic sequences (Hickman and Bagas, 1999). Mapped structures within E45/5107 are generally NW- to NNW-trending (sub-parallel to the major Southwest Thrust located immediately to the west of E45/5107) with some minor N-S faults. A 2015 Southern Geoscience interpretation has identified 5 gold targets within E45/5107.
Historically, gold has been recorded in stream sediment samples around Coolbro Creek and in rock-chip samples at Table Top. At Table Top historical mapping indicates quartz filled fracture systems over 3 km in length. The results of this historical work need to be validated by a site visit.
