Mt Magnet Projects

Winjangoo Project

The Winjangoo project (E58/536) is located 20km northeast of Mount Magnet and comprises one EL (two sections) of 29 blocks covering 89 km2.  Access is via the Great Northern Highway then gravel tracks.  A historical gold in soil anomaly contains a peak value of 2,059ppb Au, however much of the project is completely unexplored.

The greenstone units of the Winjangoo EL comprise a thick sequence of gabbro and are bounded by granite to the east and the west.  The gabbro is subdivided into a general gabbroic unit and a strongly differentiated gabbro with interlayered units of serpentinite, peridotite and talc-chlorite-tremolite schist with the gabbroic body, which is interpreted to be a composite intrusion, rather than a single magma chamber. These supracrustal rocks are flanked by younger granites of the Tuckanarra Suite and the Bald Rock Supersuite.

Westar has completed auger sampling, airborne geophysical surveys, detailed litho-stratigraphic interpretations and field mapping, which generated multiple targets based on complex fold interferences and faulting, potentially forming mineralisation ‘traps’ along fluid conduits in iron-rich stratigraphy.

A 3,000m RC drilling program in CY2021 tested 4 priority targets, intersecting and intersecting numerous shear zones, with thick quartz veining in altered basalts.  Results included 2m @ 0.22 from 52 in WJRC0006 and 4m @ 0.14 g/t Au from 24 metres in WJRC0036.

Additional targeting work is planned for 2022 using enhanced geophysics to generate priority targets along the interpreted intersections of shear zones and fold/fault interferences under alluvial cover where previous soil sampling is considered ineffective.
