The 100% owned Winjangoo Gold Project (E58/536) is and located in in the Murchison Mineral Field of Western Australia (Figure 2) approximately 25 km north of Mount Magnet, which has historically produced over six million ounces of gold since the initial discovery in 1891. Historical exploration at Winjangoo is limited to minor geochemical programs, desktop studies, regional geophysical programs, and geological mapping over limited portions of the project area.
The Winjangoo Project comprises a thick sequence of folded and faulted greenstones bound by granite to the east and the west. On a project scale, the lithologies and structures interpreted from geophysics and mapping are conducive to gold mineralisation conduits and dilatational “traps” seen in other orogenic gold systems and key indicators are present for a mineralised system present at the prospect scale, including gold anomalism, host-rock alteration, veining, shearing and sulphides.
Westar completed auger sampling, airborne geophysical surveys, detailed litho-stratigraphic interpretations and field mapping ahed of the maiden RC program in CY2021 which tested four target areas. Significant intercepts include 2m @ 0.22 g/t Au from 52 metres in WJRC0006 and 4m @ 0.14 g/t Au from 24 metres in WJRC0036.
Additional targeting work is planned for 2023 using enhanced geophysics to generate priority targets along the interpreted intersections of shear zones and fold/fault interferences as well as testing ultrafine soil sampling to define anomalism under alluvial cover where previous soil sampling is considered ineffective.
