Winterbrook – copper target
Whitewood – copper target
The Balfour project consists of one EL application covering 350km2, 125kms northeast of Newman in the Pilbara of Western Australia.
The application is prospective for base metals associated with the rift boundary in the Pilbara region. The tenement covers 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.
Winterbrook has an anomalous demagnetised zone stretching 6kms in length, accompanied with a gravity high, as well as a copper-zinc-arsenic anomaly from a soil program completed.
Whitewood has been flown with airborne electromagnetics which has highlighted anomalism with an overall northeast trend. Anomalous soil results are believed to be associated with intrusive dolerites, similar in geology to the rocks that host high-grade copper mineralisation at Ilgarari and Kumarina south-west of Balfour
