Mt Magnet Projects
The Coolaloo Project (E59/2329) is located approximately 25km SW of Mt Magnet, 430 km NE of Perth and is adjacent the Great Northern Highway. The Project covers an area of approximately 136 km2 and is accessed via the Daggar Hills gravel road at the southern end of the tenement.
The Geology within the tenure comprises predominantly units of the Austin Downs Supersuite that are overlain with sheetwash, lacrustrine units consisting mixed dunes, evaporite and alluvium, saline and gypsiferous evaporite deposits, clay, silts, sands, and playa lakes. Historical geological mapping and airborne magnetic data indicate Archean greenstones and significant fault structures that previous explorers considered prospective for both Mt Magnet and Big Bell style gold mineralisation.
Westar has completed auger sampling, flown over 3,000 line km of geophysical surveys, conducted independent targeting and interpretations and subsequentially completed 11,000m of aircore drilling, testing 10 targets in 2021.
Established geochemical indices using multi-element assays indicate vectors to mineralisation in areas of depleted regolith, with six of the targets hosting coincident multi-element and low-level gold anomalism associated with structural trends.
Westar intends to conduct further target definition and ranking prior to considering deeper RC drilling targets.
