Hyden Project

Western Australia

The Hyden Project consists of two sub-projects, namely Hyden and Tampia East, located in the Wheatbelt Region of WA, covering a combined area of approximately 460 km2.  The Hyden Project area is located 5km south of the townsite of Hyden and the Tampia East Project area is located approximately 15km southeast of the town of Narembeen.

Significant Intercepts from Hyden Project

  • 12m @ 1,327 ppm Cu, 263 ppm Ni & 1,076 ppm Zn from 12m (08HWAC089);
  • 24 m @ 757 ppm Ni & 299 ppm Cu from 21m (08HWAC090);
  • 3m @ 1112 ppm Cu from 33m (08HWVR078);
  • 3m @ 529ppm Co from 15m in hole 05DRAC003 adjacent to 3m @ 238ppm Co from 12m is highly anomalous for cobalt in the samples collected to date and may be a sulphide indicator

The Hyden Sub-Project covers a prominent 15km long magnetic anomaly interpreted to reflect the development of ultramafic lithologies that could potentially host nickel mineralisation. The geological setting is considered to be analogous to the Forrestania Nickel Belt, located 70km to the east.

Limited drilling has identified a succession of interpreted ultramafic and mafic volcanics. Surface sampling has produced elevated Ni, Cu & Cr results over the northern extension of the aeromagnetic high at the Dragon Rocks Prospect. The anomaly remains open towards the north.
