We’ve monetised a liability and starting trucking the copper oxides to Whim Creek, for processing by Blackrock Minerals. So far, we’ve sold 50,000t of copper oxide at 1.5% Copper content

We inherited the Whundo tenements through the Fox Radio Hill Pty Ltd deal for the Radio Hill processing plant – hence we gained the Whundo copper project. We were about to start a rehabilitation project on historic waste dumps – but then we released these low-grade deposits were now economical in 2017 – so We’ve monetised a liability and starting trucking the copper oxides to Whim Creek, for processing by Blackrock Minerals. So far, we’ve sold 50,000t of copper oxide at 1.5% Copper content.

Meanwhile, West Whundo has a copper/zinc resource, with a focus on copper:

TenementsTonnesGradeResource
M47/7 1,687,000t Copper = 1.1% 18,533 t
Zinc = 0.94% 15,909 t

 

Additionally, there is the Whundo and Ayshia copper/zinc deposits, with a focus on zinc:

TenementsTonnesGradeResource
M47/7 1,955,000 Copper = 0.43% 3,289 t
Zinc = 1.93% 22,911 t

We’ve enjoyed selling copper oxides so much so that we want to continue this deal either with Blackrock Minerals or with our own Radio Hill plant – so we started drilling around the Whundo and West Whundo open pits. We’ve got 20 angled drill holes (dip -60 degrees) to compare the previous intersections of oxide copper mineralisation, as all previous drilling was vertical.  Some significant copper intercepts are:
