Balfour Project (Copper) - Western Australia

In a snapshot

  • 350km2 tenement package which straddles a Proterozoic Rift.
  • The tenement covers a 25km strike of the prospective sub-basin.
  • The Company believes the project has the potential for sediment hosted base metal mineralisation.
  • Manganese deposits in close proximity, and the project covers the main mineralisation lineament.
Location of the Balfour Project, Pilbara.

The Balfour project consists of one granted exploration lease covering 350km2, 125kms northeast of Newman in the Pilbara of Western Australia. The tenement is prospective for base metals associated with the rift boundary in the Pilbara region. Covering 25kms of the interpreted strike length of the sub-basin.

Two prospects have already been determined Winterbrook and Whitewood which occur equidistant along strike from the Nicholas Downs Manganese Project.


  • Geophysical anomaly – 6km demagnetised structure
  • Geochemical anomaly – 3km base metal (Cu-Zn) soils
  • Deposit adjacent – 15km from Nicholas Downs Manganese Deposit
  • Shallow cover masks prospectivity

Whitewood – copper target

  • Geophysical anomaly – gravity high feature
  • Geochemical anomaly – 10km (Cu-Zn-As) soil anomaly
  • EM survey highlights N-E trending basin sub-structures.
