New South Wales
Alliance has two projects in NSW which are prospective for gold and base metals, including molybdenum-tungsten.
NSW Project Locations
Bogan Gate West Gold-Base Metals Project (Alliance 100%)
The Bogan Gate West Project is located approximately 45 km west of Parkes in New South Wales.
The tenement is situated on the western limb of the Tullamore Syncline, a north-south trending Devonian rift that separates the project area from the Goonumbla Volcanics which host the Northparkes copper-gold deposits to the northeast.
The project has potential for a number of mineral deposit types including skarn hosted poly-metallic, epithermal gold, porphyry related copper-gold and rare earths associated with the peralkaline Ganantagi granite in the west of the project area.
There has been no substantive fieldwork on this project since Duval Mining in 1981-82.
Proposed work includes reviewing and compiling the existing data generated by previous explorers, geological mapping & geochemistry (portable XRF and conventional); geophysical survey(s), e.g. ground magnetics, induced polarisation and drilling of targets generated by the geochemistry and geophysics.
Garema Gold Project (Alliance 100%)
The Garema Gold Project EL application is located 25 km south of Forbes and captures approximately 20 km of interpreted Ordovician sediments containing the historic Pinnacles Mining Centre, where a number of mines were worked between 1883 and 1936 with total recorded production of >158kg of gold hosted by quartz veins in metasediments and syenites over a strike length of about 7km. The main gold mines were Ironbarks reef (76kg), Croakers reef (14kg), Soldier’s reef (5.3kg) and Wheogo Mountain reef (3kg).
Previous exploration defined a 7km by 500m +10 ppb gold in soil anomaly over this district. Gold-arsenic-mercury mineralisation is accompanied by sericite-pyrite alteration.
The extrapolation of the SW trending Parkes Fault Zone (PFZ) borders the tenement in the west. The PFZ is associated with numerous significant gold deposits and polymetallic gold occurrences over a strike length of 100 km between Forbes and Tomingley and up to 10 km east of the PFZ.
Alliance has selected the area on the basis of its structural position within the PFZ and the existing gold occurrences, which the Company considers have not been thoroughly tested at depth, along strike, or below Quaternary cover.
Proposed work includes reviewing the existing data generated by previous explorers, a first phase of geological mapping, geochemical sampling and geophysical surveying at depth, or along strike from, existing mineral occurrences and a second phase of reverse circulation and/or diamond coring of targets generated in the first phase.
