Mt Mulcahy

The Mt Mulcahy Prospect is located 45 km northwest of Cue. The area is considered prospective for Volcanogenic Massive Sulphide (‘VMS’) style base metal mineralisation and lies in a similar geological setting to the world-class Golden Grove VMS deposits and the Hollandaire copper discovery announced by Silver Lake Resources at its Murchison Project 60 km to the southeast.

Historic exploration conducted in the 1970s & 80s has defined a mineralised horizon stretching some 10 km around the Mt Mulcahy syncline, with drilling intersecting high grade copper, zinc and silver.

Reverse circulation and diamond drill programs have been carried out by Scorpion at one of the more advanced exploration targets called South Limb Pod, with considerable success, defining the resource as 647 kt @ 2.4% Cu, 1.8% Zn, 0.1% Co, 0.2 g/t Au for 15.2 kt Cu metal.

Future work

  • Extensional drilling of High grade plunge planned at South Limb Pod
  • Reconnaissance of coincident VTEM and geochemical anomalies along the VMS prospective horizon
  • Follow up Drilling of priority targets
