Ella’s Rock Nickel-Gold Project
The Ella’s Rock Nickel-Gold Project consists of three exploration licences and covers an area adjacent to the prolific Forrestania Greenstone Belt known for hosting nickel and gold. It is in close proximity to the Western Area’s owned Cosmic Boy nickel concentrator plant.
Surface mapping indicates the presence of greenstone lithologies in an area previously interpreted to be predominantly granite.
Government magnetic images clearly show higher magnetic granites with lower magnetic greenstones units attenuated between them. These greenstones are generally masked by the overlying recent sediments and the laterization of the regolith and remain largely untested by drilling.
Magnetics show the potential for attenuated greenstones between granitic plutons. Exploration will be designed to delineate any greenstone rock units under cover.
