Shepherd’s Well


(CZR 70%)

Gold/ Nickel/ Rare Earths

Shepherd’s Well Project is a multi-commodity prospect located 75km south of Karratha.
The project tenement covers a 17km section of the crustal-scale Scholl Creek Shear and shows prospectivity for gold, base metals and Rare Earth Elements.

Geology and Prospectivity

Shepherd’s Well’s geology is dominated by mafic volcanics and sediments to west of the shear and a granitic intrusion to the east. All these rocks are overlain in parts by sub-horizontal rocks from the Fortescue Group that forms the base of the Hammersley Basin.

Work Schedule

Surface sampling and mapping has outlined three prospects with the potential for drill follow-up.

Dorper contains an ultramafic intrusive in the core of the Sholl Shear that reports anomalous nickel, gold and platinum-group elements.

Awassi covers an outcrop of siliceous sediments also in the core of the Sholl Shear with anomalous rare-earths.

Suffolk is an area of anomalous in lead and zinc in soils over felsic rocks along a subsidiary structure from the Sholl Shear.
