Figure 24. Stratmin Tenements locality and infrastructure

Geological Setting and Mineralisation

The primary mineralisation being targeted typically occurs as scheelite in sheeted quartz veins and pipes hosted in volcano-sedimentary rocks of the Hodgkinson Province or the roof and upper flanks of the fertile parent granite intrusions.

The tenures comprising the Stratmin Project have preferentially been selected around and between the Mount Carbine, Watershed and Wolfram Camp deposits and have a geological setting similar to these major deposits (Figure 24).

The Stratmin tenures host a number of historical artisanal workings for tungsten, tin, molybdenum, copper and gold, including:

  • The Pom-Pom tungsten deposit and two copper prospects, one being the Sweet William mine, located within EPM27628 (Mt Carbine Southern) The EPM also hosts two valid, but dormant, Mining Leases held by third parties for gold, silver and tin.
  • The poorly explored Wolfram Hill tungsten prospect, located in EPMA27798.
  • The Carbonate Creek copper-tungsten-molybdenum workings located in EPM27578 (Carbonate Creek).
