Eastern Goldfields, WA – E37/1073, E38/2435, E39/1582, E37/1074

These four projects shown in Figure 8 are within the greenstone belt of the Yilgarn Craton in the Eastern Goldfields of Western Australia near Laverton and Leonora. Discovery of gold, nickel and base metal in the project areas and their surrounding ground can be traced back to as early as the late 19th century.

图8所示的这四个项目位于西澳大利亚州“东金矿区”的伊尔加克拉通绿岩带,靠近Laverton和Leonora镇。黄 金、镍和基础金属在本公司项目范围及其周围地区的发现可以追溯到19世纪晚些时候。

E37/1073, E37/1074 and E39/1582 - Gold Potential

In recent time, interest in gold in this project region in the 1980s and 1990s lead to a number of new discoveries and the development of several major gold mining centres. The major operational mines of the region include Emu, Sunrise, Wallaby, Lawlers, Tarmoola, Sons of Gwalia, Thunderbox, and Sunrise Dam (including Cleo). Past major producers include Granny Smith, Beasley Creek, Bottle Creek, Lancefield, Burtville, Kookynie, Harbour Lights, Tower Hill, and Mount Morgans. There are a number of deposits yet to be developed near Laverton and to the south, including the Chatterbox Shear deposits (Whisper, Rumour, Innuendo, and Garden Well etc).

上世纪80和90年代对本公司项目所在地区内的黄金的追寻,促成了在该地区的许多新矿体的发现并发展了多 个主要的黄金开采中心。该地区内大的生产矿山包括Emu、Sunrise、Wallaby、Lawlers、Tarmoola、Sons of Gwalia、 Thunderbox和Sunrise Dam。过去的主要生产商还包括Granny Smith、Beasley Creek、Bottle Creek、Lancefield,、 Burtville、Kookynie、Harbour Lights、Tower Hill和Mount Morgans。目前在Laverton(拉弗顿)及其南部有许多尚未开 发的金矿矿体,包括Chatterbox Shear矿体群(Whisper、Rumour、Innuendo及Garden Well等)。

E38/2435 - Nickel Potential

Situated in the Laverton greenstone belt, exploration over this tenement ground will be aiming at nickel sulfides. Historical exploration and mining to date reveals that intense nickel exploration in the late 1960s and 1970s was focused on ultramafic-hosted nickel sulfide deposits in the Agnew–Wiluna, Murrin, and the Laverton greenstone belts. The area to be explored is near Mount Windarra and South Windarra where sulfide nickel deposit is disseminated throughout peridotite at the base of a particular ultramafic volcanic flow, which is stratigraphically the lowermost ultramafic unit of the Margaret Anticline stratigraphy

该勘探项目位于Laverton(拉弗顿)绿岩带,在这个矿权内的勘探目标是硫化镍矿。 以往的勘探及迄今为止的开采历史表明,在上世纪60年代末和70年代的勘探都集中在基于超基性岩的硫化镍 矿,这些镍矿体位于Agnew–Wiluna、Murrin和Laverton绿岩带。

本项目所勘探范围靠近Mount Windarra和South Windarra。在这些地域,硫化镍矿散布于位于特定的超基性火 山熔流底部的橄榄岩,即玛格丽特背斜地层的最下面的超基性岩体。

Gunbarrel, WA – E69/2810, E69/2811, E69/2812 – Base Metal (Cu and Nickel etc)

These three tenements shown in Figure 9 lie in close proximity to the Arunta-Musgrave Igneous Complex where 89 mineral occurrences known to date. Recent exploration to the east and north (in the Northern Territory, South Australia, and Western Australia) shows that the Granites–Tanami Complex and the Arunta Orogen are highly prospective for metallic minerals.

Back to Top ^

In the Musgrave Complex, the first significant mineralization was discovered in 1955 by Southwestern Mining (a subsidiary of INCO) at Wingellina. An early resource estimate for the nickel laterite deposits was reported by Nickel Mines of Australia NL (a joint venture partner with INCO at Wingellina) as 56mt averaging 1.24% Ni (for 0.697mt contained nickel) and 0.09% Co. Further work by Acclaim Exploration has recently resulted in an estimated measured, indicated, and inferred resources of 227mt at 1% nickel for 2.3mt of contained nickel.

Significant nickel sulfide mineralization has recently been discovered by WMC Ltd at the Nebo and Babel deposits, in layered mafic rocks in the Giles Complex of the west Musgrave area, about 125 km to the west of Wingellina (WMC Ltd, 2002). Nebo’s drilling in the past intersected 62 m averaging 1.14% Ni, 0.87% Cu, 0.04% Co, and 0.4 g/t platinum group metals and gold. This intersection includes 26.5 m averaging 2.45% Ni, 1.78% Cu, 0.09% Co, and 0.74 g/t precious elements. The mineralized body was intersected 50 m beneath the surface.

WMC undertook diamond drilling in 2002 in and around the Babel and Nebo prospects, and also at another prospect known as Gerar located 10 km north of Babel. One drillhole at Babel intersected 41.6 m averaging 0.81% Ni and 1.37% Cu, from about 34 m beneath the surface (WMC Ltd, 2002, 2003).

New interpretation of the regional geology has shifted the focus of sulfide nickel exploration to the basement gneiss, where targets have been identified for further testing.

About 30 km north of Nebo and Babel drilling by WMC has intersected anomalous concentrations of titanium, vanadium, and precious metals within bands of magnetite (WMC Ltd, 2000).

West Musgrave Mining Ltd reported that it had also located copper–gold mineralization in a quartz vein in Tollu Group volcanic rocks about 8 km southeast of Voyager 2 in the company’s Cavenagh Range project area. The mineralized quartz vein is up to 2 m wide and can be traced for approximately 300 m. Samples returned maximum values of 5.3 g/t Au and 6.34% Cu.

The copper mineralization in the area is mainly of two types. One type is related to the felsic volcanic rocks found at Tollu, Pussy Cat Hill, Mount Elvire, Scamp Hill, Mount Palgrave, Mount Eliza, and Domeyer Hill; and the other type is related to the basaltic rocks in the Warburton area.

In association with copper, there are small occurrences of fluorite, lead, zinc, silver, agate, and gold, all in the Musgrave Complex, associated with felsic volcanic rocks. Other important mineral commodity in the Musgrave Complex is vanadium. The most significant vanadium occurrences are associated with the titaniferous magnetite bands in ultramafic and mafic rocks of the Jameson Range Gabbro of the Giles Complex.

图9所示的三个矿权位于阿伦塔-马斯格雷夫火成岩体(Arunta-Musgrave Igneous Complex)邻近地区。 迄今为止在该地区已经有89个见矿点。最近该地域的东部及北部(在北领地,南澳大利亚,西澳大利亚州)的勘 探表明,花岗岩塔纳米(Granites–Tanami Complex)与阿伦塔造山带(Arunta Orogen)具有高度的金属矿物 探矿前景。

在马斯格雷夫火成岩体的第一个重要的矿体是在1955年由西南矿业(INCO公司的子公司)在Wingellina发 现的。澳大利亚镍矿联盟早期对Wingellina的红土镍矿资源量的评估是含镍1.24%及含钴0.09%的矿石5600万吨 (约含69.7万吨金属镍)。勘探公司Acclaim的进一步勘探工作揭示了镍矿石资源量为2.27亿吨,品位1%,含金 属镍230万吨。

WMC公司近期在在马斯格雷夫(Musgrave)贾尔斯(Giles Complex)西部地区,大约在Wingellina以西 125公里处发现了Nebo和Babel硫化镍矿。在Nebo的钻探穿透了62米矿体,含镍1.14%、含铜0.87%、含钴0.04 %和含金等贵金属0.4克/吨。这一钻探穿透包括26.5米平均含镍2.45%、含铜1.78%、含钴0.09%和贵金属0.74 克/吨。矿化体位于地表以下50米。

WMC资源公司于2002年在Babel和Nebo及其周围地域以及在Babel北边10公里处的Gerar地区的进行了岩芯 钻探。其中在Babel的钻探在地表以下34米穿透了41.6米矿体含镍0.81%和含铜1.37%。

对该地区的区域地质的新的解释已经将探矿重心从硫化镍矿转移至基础金属,而且目标已经确定,有待进行 进一步的测试鉴定。

大约在Nebo和Babel以北30公里的地方,WMC的钻探还交汇了异常品位的钛、钒以及在磁铁矿带中的贵金 属(WMC股份有限公司,2000年)。

据西马斯格雷夫矿业有限公司(West Musgrave Mining Ltd)报告,它也在Voyager东南约8公里处的Tollu 火山岩组的石英脉中找到了铜-金矿。矿化石英脉宽度可达2米,有约300米的长度。取样化验结果为含金5.3克/和 含铜6.34%。

在该地区的铜矿体主要有两种类型,一类是发现于Tollu等地域的酸性火山岩,另一类型与在沃伯顿地区玄 武质岩石有关。 与铜矿伴生的还有萤石、铅、锌、银、玛瑙和黄金,所有都与在马斯格雷夫的酸性火山岩有关。

在马斯格雷夫的其它重要矿产还有钒。最重要的钒矿体出现在Giles岩体组的辉长岩和基性岩、超基性岩的 夊合钛磁铁矿带。

East Kimberley, Halls Creek - E80/4450, E80/4448 and E80/4478

Ishine's tenements E80/4450, E80/4448 and E80/4478 are contained within aspects of the Eastern and Central Zones of the Lamboo Ogneous Complex in the East Kimberley area covering most of the Halls Creek Orogen, as well as the eastern end of the King Leopol Orogen, part of the Granites – Tanami Complex, and parts of the Speewah, Kimberley, Ord, Bonaparte, Canning, and Birrindudu Basins. Figure 10 shows the tenement locations and associated mineral occurrence.

Potential mineral identified in these two project areas are gold and base metal.

Exploration for volcanogenic massive sulfide (VMS) and volcanogenic exhalative base metal deposits, mainly in the vicinity of the earlier discoveries, has continued since 1975. The most significant deposits defined are Anglo Australian Resources NL which recently announced JORC resource of 4 million tonnes of ore with 3.8% Zn and 1.5% Cu and 0.2% Pb, 17g/t Ag and 0.4g/t Au. Their July 2010 announcement revealed an intersection of 71m @ 5.04% Cu, 7.69% Zn, 68 g/t Ag and 0.43 g/t Au in SRC061, which contained an interval of 15m @ 9.4% Cu, 214 g/t Ag and 0.19 g/t Au corresponding to the zone of supergene copper enrichment at the top of the Sandiego Deposit.

Gold was another commodity to be sought in this area. This was supported by Precious Metals Australia which commenced open pit gold production at the Palm Springs mine in April 1995, and 2,272 272 kg of gold was produced before the mine was placed on care and maintenance in April 1997 as a result of falling gold prices.

The potential for nickel is evidenced by a number of nickel miners. Of which, most of the nickel occurrences are in Group V intrusions in the Central zone of the Lamboo Complex and the most significant is the Sally Malay deposit. The massive sulfides are overlain by minor stringerstyle chalcopyrite–pyrrhotite–pentlandite mineralization (Shedden and Barnes, 1996). The Sally Malay deposit has an indicated and inferred resource of 3.85 Mt averaging 1.79% Ni, 0.73% Cu, and 0.10% Co. Group V (Sally Malay) intrusions also host nickel–copper sulfide mineralization at the Keller Creek.

兴盛国际的的矿权E80/4450、E80/4448和E80/4478位于Kimberley东部地区的Lamboo Ogneous地层带,部分属于 Granites-Tanami地层带,部分属于Speewah、Kimberly、Ord、Bonaparte、Canning及Birrindudu盆地。图11显示了矿权 位置及其出现的相关矿物。


自1975年以来,在早前发现矿体的附近区域内探索火山岩型的大型硫化物类基础金属(VMS)和火山岩型贱 金属的勘探活动一直持续至今。已确定的最重要的矿体属于安格鲁澳大利亚资源公司(Anglo Australian Resources NL)最近宣布的400万吨的JORC资源量。该资源量含有3.8%的锌、1.5%的铜、0.2%的铅、17克/吨的银和0.4克/吨的 黄金。该公司2010年7月份披露的消息显示了他们的SRC061号钻孔穿透了71米的矿体,这71米的岩芯品位是5.04%的 铜、7.69%的锌、68克/吨银和0.43克/吨的黄金,其中包括有15m的岩芯含有9.4%的铜、214克/吨银和0.19克/吨的黄 金。该发现对应于富集铜含量的圣迭亚戈矿体的顶部。

黄金是该区域内的另一种目标矿物。这一观点得到了贵金属澳大利亚公司(Precious Metals Australia)的有力 支持。该公司在1995年4月在该地区开始了经营性的露天矿黄金开采。到1997年4月因金价低落该矿停产为止,该矿 生产了2272公斤的黄金。

该地区内镍矿开采者的增加使得镍矿的前景可见一斑。其中最重要的镍矿出现在Lamboo岩体中心的第五组岩 体侵入带,最有重要意义的是Sally Malay矿体。巨大的硫化物矿体之上为小型的线状型的黄铜矿、磁黄铁矿、 镍黄 铁矿矿化体。Sally Malay矿体具有指示性和推断性矿石量 385 万吨,平均含镍1.79%、含铜 0.73% 和含钴 0.10%。第 五组岩体侵入带在Keller Creek同样含有镍铜硫化矿。

West Kimberley, Broome/Derby – E04/2031

The tenement shown in Figure 11 is focused upon Lower Permian sediments within the Fitzroy Graben of the Lennard Shelf where a number of lead/zinc deposits were discovered and mined.

Back to Top ^

The Lennard Shelf region is one of the world’s premier Mississippi Valley Type (“MVT”) zinc-lead provinces containing premining zinc-lead resources of 41 million tonnes (“Mt”) @ 7.9% zinc and 3.2% lead.

BHP Minerals commenced exploration of the Lennard Shelf region in the late 1970’s. After several years of extensive exploration the Cadjebut deposit was discovered in 1984, Goongewa in 1987 and Kapok in 1989. BHP Minerals and Billiton jointly brought Cadjebut into production in 1987 and in the mid-1990’s both BHP Minerals and Billiton sold their respective interests in the Lennard Shelf Project to Western Metals.

Following purchase of the project, Western Metals continued with exploration and extended the known resources at Cadjebut, Goongewa, Kapok, Kapok West and discovered a new resource at Kutarta. Production from Cadjebut ceased in 1998. Goongewa produced from 1995 to 2001, and Kapok from 1997 until 2003.

Teck purchased the Lennard Shelf assets from the receivers of Western Metals in 2003 and subsequently sold a 50% interest in the project to Noranda (now Xstrata), forming the jointventure company Lennard Shelf Pty Ltd (LSPL).

LSPL undertook exploration within the Lennard Shelf tenements during the field seasons of 2004, 2005, 2006, 2007 and 2008. Highlights included intersecting previously undiscovered mineralisation at the Palijippa prospect in 2005 where, following further drilling in 2006, an in-house inferred resource was estimated. The Palijippa discovery by LSPL demonstrates the excellent potential of the project area for the discovery of additional mineral resources.

Meridian Minerals Limited recently reported its best drilling intersection at the Kapok West prospect with up to 22.5% combined lead and zinc.

如图11所示,该矿权的勘探焦点是位于Lenard大陆架内的 Fitzroy Graben 的下位 Permian 沉积岩。在该区域, 已经发现并开采了多个铅/锌矿体。 Lennard 大陆架地区是全球优异的密西西比河谷型(“Mississippi Valley Type”)锌铅富含地区之一,它蕴含着 4100 万吨含锌7.9%和含铅3.2%的矿石资源量。

自上世纪70年代末期,必和必拓在Lennard大陆架地区开始探矿。经过多年广泛的勘探,于1984年发现了 Cadjebut矿体,1987年发现了Goongewan矿体及1989年发现了Kapok矿体。必和必拓于1987年开始了Cadjebut矿的开 采,与1990年年中将此项目出售给西部金属公司(West Metals).

西部金属公司在购买了该项目后继续其探矿工作并扩大在Cadjebut、Goongewa、Kakpok和Kakpok西部的资源 量,同时在Kutarta发现了新的矿石资源。在Cadjebut的开采于1998年停止。Goongewa矿在1995年至2001年期间进行 开采,Kapok矿的开采从1997年延续到2003年。

泰克公司(Teck)在2003年购买了西部金属公司在Lennard大陆架的矿产资源,随后将该项目50%权益出让给 了Noranda(现在的Xtrata),形成了合资公司,吊称为“Lennard大陆架有限公司”(简称“LSPL“)。

LSPL在2004年至2008年的野外季节对Lennard大陆架内的矿权进行了进一步的勘探。勘探的亮点包括钻到了在 Palijippa区域内先前未发现的矿化体。在2006年的进一步钻探后,作出了一个推断性的资源量。LSPL在Palijippa的发 现表明了在该区域发现更多的矿产资源的极大的潜力。

Meridian Minerals股份有限公司在最近公布的该公司在Kapok西部项目的最好钻探结果显示了铅和锌的联合品 位22.5%。

Merredin and Narabeen, WA - E77/1786 and E70/3880

The target mineral in the tenement E77/1786 area is magnetite iron ore contained within banded iron formations (“BIF”). Public domain airborne magnetic data provides evidence for the occurrence of BIF in the project area. The project area is approximately 35km west of the main Southern Cross greenstone belt which hosts the Mt Caudan iron deposit discovered by Cazaly Resources Ltd where some of the results revealed 18m @ 58.0% Fe and 16m @ 59.7% Fe.

This tenement covers an area of approximately 225km2 and overlies a portion of the poorly known greenstone belt, which is surrounded by post‐tectonic intrusive granites. Based on previous mapping and shallow drilling, the greenstone belt is known to contain mafic, ultramafic and sedimentary rocks, including BIF. Outcrop within the area is scarce due to a widespread cover of tertiary laterite, aeolian sand and soil.

Back to Top ^

Tenement E70/3880 covers an area of approximately 225km2 and is approximately 70km west of the main Southern Cross greenstone belt. It lies immediately to the north of tenement M70/815, which contains the Gault-Tampa Hill gold resource and is reported to contain a resource of 3,300Kg Gold, 1 million tones @3.3 g/t.

The tenement and its nearby area also contain several small historical gold workings, which were explored during the 1990’s by several companies. Gold mineralisation occurs within quartz veins and quartz‐rich granitic stringers hosted by sediments, mafic‐to‐felsic granulites and gabbroic rocks. (Cambrian Resources Ltd 1994‐1996 and St Barbara Mines Ltd 1994).

兴盛国际在探矿权E77/1786范围内的勘探目标是带状磁铁矿。澳洲政府公布的公共航空电磁数据提供了带状 磁铁矿存在的依据。该项目区域位于Southern Cross主绿岩带西部约35公里处。Cazaly资源股份有限公司在该绿岩带 内已发现了Mt Caudan铁矿体,对该矿体的部分钻探结果显示了18米58.0%铁和16米59.7%的铁。

本公司的矿权面积约225平方公里面积,覆盖着鲜为人知的被后构造花岗岩侵入包围的绿岩带。根据以往的地 质描图和浅部钻探获知,该绿岩带富含基性岩、超基性岩和沉积岩及带状磁铁矿。由于第三纪红土、风积沙和土的 广泛覆盖,该区域内露头稀少。

本公司的探矿权E70/3880占地面积约225平方公里,位于Southern Cross主绿岩带西部约70公里处。它与采矿权 M70/815的北部边界直接相邻。该采矿权内含有Gault-Tampa Hill金矿,已探出金矿资源量100万吨,品位3.3 g/t,含黄 金3300公斤。

探矿权E70/3880及其附近地区还含有几个在历史上开采过的矿点。有多个公司在上世纪90年代对这些矿点进 行了勘探,并发现黄金矿化带出现在石英脉及富含石英的花岗岩条带。

Mt Elsie E45/3791 – Pilbara Iron and Manganese Prospect

Ishine's exploration tenement E45/3791 is located in the iron ore rich province of Pilbara in West Australia. This 45 km2 tenement is surrounded by tenements owned by a number of different mining companies exploring for iron ore.

兴盛国际的探矿权E45/3791位于西澳大利亚的铁矿富集地区皮尔巴拉地区,该矿权面积45平方公里,围绕该 探矿权的周围是被许多其他矿业公司拥有的、正在勘探铁矿的探矿权。

Capricorn E08/2222 – Uranium and Manganese Potential

Ishine's Capricon exploration tenement of 341km2 is located over the north-western arm of the mid-Proterozoic Bangemall Basin in the Ashburton region of Western Australia. It is situated approximately 950kms north of Perth. It covers approximately 20km strike of the major Talga Fault, recently identified by the Geological Survey of Western Australia. The Talga Fault separates shallow dipping rocks of the Pingandy Shelf to the north and the more steeply dipping compressed and folded sedimentary rocks of the Edmund Ford Belt to the south.

The tenement is surrounded by Aurora Minerals Limited’s Capricorn Projects, as shown in Figure 14 where Aurora’s recent research found massive high-grade manganese mineralization. In early November 2010, Aurora announced their high grade manganese discovery in this project area and said that “Of the 125 rock-chip samples collected from surface, 83 assayed over 20% Mn with 21 exceeding 40% Mn to a maximum of 54.8% Mn.”

Ishine's target minerals sought over this exploration tenement are manganese, base metal massive sulphide deposits, such as the large lead-zinc deposits and stratabound uranium deposits.

兴盛国际的Capricorn(凯佩力靠妮)探矿权面积341平方公里,位于西澳大利亚阿什伯顿(Ashburton)地区的 元古宙中期的班杰马尔(Bangemall)盆地西北部。它位于珀斯以北大约950公里。矿权区覆盖了最近由西澳大利亚 地质调查局界定的塔尔加(Talga)大断层走向线上约20公里的走向长度范围。塔尔加大断层将北部缓倾角的平加迪 (Pingandy)岩体与南部较陡的、压缩紧密的、折叠的埃德蒙福特(Edmund Ford)沉积岩石分开。

如图14所示,围绕着该矿权周围的是Aurora矿业有限公司的凯佩力靠妮项目。Aurora矿业有限公司在他们的凯 佩力靠妮项目的最近的研究发现了大量的高品位锰矿成矿带。在2010年11月初,Aurora矿业有限公司宣布了他们在 这个项目地区发现了高品位的锰矿,并说:“在地面所采集的125个岩片样品中,83个样品含有20%以上的锰,其中 有21个样品的锰品位超过40%,最高锰品位达54.8%”。


Ooldea Range, Eucla Basin, SA - EL198/10

Large, zircon-rich, heavy mineral (“HM”) sand deposits have recently been discovered by Iluka Resources Limited and other companies in old Tertiary shore line deposited along the eastern margin of the highly prospective Eucla Basin, South Australia. The largest and highest grade of these, Jacinth, Ambrosia and Tripitake are deposited at distinctive headland and embayment settings, which suggests that anomalous mineralisation extends across an extensive area and the mineralisation detected occurs in unconsolidated sands above the water table.

Ishine’s tenement EL198/2010 is located in the same area with historical mineral occurrence. It is envisaged that the prosectivity of discovering heavy mineral sands is very good.

Back to Top ^

First pass drilling of Red Metal’s Barton project this year successfully discovered an extensive blanket of low grade, heavy mineral sand situated along the same Tertiary shore line that hosts Iluka Resources’ Majave discovery. Early success at Barton highlights potential for additional HM along the Barton to Mojave shore line trend and in particular an untested headland and embayment target immediately southwest from the new Barton occurrence. This target is significant as it is interpreted to have potential for high-grade HM trap sites in similar target settings to the nearby Jacinth and Ambrosia deposits。

Iluke资源股份有限公司及其他公司近期在南澳大利亚州老第三纪湖岸线沿着具有高度前景的Eucla盆地的东部 边缘发现了大型的、富含锆石的重矿砂。其中规模最大、品位最高的Jacinth、Ambrosia和Tripitake赋存于独特的岬角 和内湾的沉积体。这表明矿化异常已扩展到广泛的领域,而且已检测到的成矿带出现在水位以上的松散砂体。

兴盛国际的探矿权EL198/2010位于同一地区,并且已有过矿物出现的记录。可以设想,在该矿权区域内发现重 矿砂的前景非常好。

红色金属公司今年在巴顿项目进行了第一轮钻探,他们在Iluka公司发现Majave矿体的沿湖岸线上发现了一个 低品位重矿砂平坦层。在巴顿项目的早期成功发现,照亮了沿巴顿到Mojave海岸线的重矿砂的美好前景,特别是 在未经测试过的岬角和紧临巴顿新发现的内湾区域。这个目标的重要意义在于它被解释为具有类似于附件Jacinth和 Ambrosia矿体的高品位的重矿砂的潜力。

Tarlina, Gwaler Craton, SA - EL196~197/10

Ishine's Tarlina project, comprising an area of approximately 1,347km2, is located in the north-central region of South Australia and centred approximately 150km northwest of Coober Pedy. An initial aircore drilling program carried out on the neighboring ground by Diatreme Resources believed to be prospective for mineral sands. Stratigraphic units favourable for the development of heavy mineral strands were identified in the western group of tenements, with shoreface development varying in thickness up to 15m. It has been interpreted that the topographic highs within certain tenements correlate with barrier systems displaying signs of beach development, such as exists at Diatreme’s Cyclone Deposit in Western Australia.

兴盛国际在南澳大利亚州的Tarlina的项目面积为1347平方公里区,位于南澳大利亚州北部。项目中心位置在 Coober Pedy镇西北150公里。Diatreme资源公司在本项目邻近的矿权上进行的初步的AirCore钻探显示了良好的矿物砂 的前景。在探矿权的西部发现了形成重矿砂的良好的地层条件,厚度可高达15米。正如存在于西澳州的Diatreme的 Cyclone矿床一样,该项目的地层已被理解为具有形成重砂滩的迹象,探矿前景明朗。

The Gawler Craton is an Archaean to Mesoproterozoic crystalline basement crustal block in central South Australia. Its margins are delineated to the northeast, northwest and west by faults and Neoproterozoic and Phanerozoic sedimentary basins. In the east and southeast, the Torrens Hinge Zone defines the margin, adjacent to the western limit of the Adelaide Fold Belt. The southern boundary is coincident with the edge of the continental shelf. Much of the area is covered by thin platform sediments and regolith of Neoproterozoic to Cainozoic age. The Gawler Craton hosts the world’s largest uranium occurrence at Olympic Dam (also the world’s fourth-largest remaining deposit of copper) and the recent discoveries of Prominent Hill (Cu, Au), Tunkillia (Au) and Peculiar Knob (Fe) attest to the prospectivity of the area.

Ishine holds approximately 340km2 of exploration licence application within the Central Gawler Gold Province in South Australia. The project is located on major mineralised structures along strike from historic and or recently discovered gold mineralisation and in areas where the prospective bedrock is obscured by shallow surficial soil cover. The project area is also prospective for palaeochannel-hosted uranium mineralisation and iron oxide copper gold (IOCG) deposits.

哥勒克拉通是位于南澳州中部的一个从太古代到中元古代的结晶基底地壳块。它的边界在东北、西北和西部 由断层和新元古代和显生宙沉积盆地所圈定。它的东部及东南边界临近阿德莱德褶皱带的西端,由Torrens褶皱划 定。南部的边界是与大陆架的边缘相吻合。该地区的大部分被薄薄的从新元古代至新生代的平坦的沉积物和风化层 所覆盖。哥勒克拉通蕴含着世界上最大的铀矿体,即奥林匹克坝(它同时也是世界第四大铜矿体)。近期 Prominent Hill(铜、金矿)、Tunkillia(金矿)和Peculiar Knob(铁矿)的发现证明了该地区巨大的探矿前景。

兴盛国际的探矿权EL234/10位于哥勒克拉通的中部的黄金勘探区,面积340平方公里。该项目处于从历史和最 近发现的主要金矿成矿结构带上,而且具有成矿前景的基岩只被较浅的表土层覆盖。该项目区同时具有形成古河道 型铀矿和铁氧化铜金矿体(IOCG)的前景。

Australia holds the world’s largest uranium resources (36%) and is the second largest producer of mined uranium (19%) from 3 world-class producing mines. The world largest known uranium deposits, the Olympic Dam, located in the world class uranium provinces in South Australia has a resource of 8,339Mt @ 0.028% U3O8 for 2,327,000t U3O8. In the past few months, Ishine has aggressively pegged a prospective ground of 3,622km2 over five exploration tenements in north of Olympic Dam. According to the South Australia state radiometrics map, Ishine’s five tenements which hold strong uranium radiometric anomalies as shown in Figure 18 are highly prospective for Olympic Dam style of uranium mineralization.

澳大利亚拥有世界上最大的铀资源(36%),是世界上第二大铀矿开采国(19%),具有三个世界级的生产 铀矿。世界上已知的最大的铀矿床,奥林匹克大坝,拥有83.39亿吨铀矿石资源,含0.028%的U3O8(232.7万吨U3O8 ),就位于在南澳大利亚州的世界级的铀矿化区域。

在过去的几个月内,兴盛国际积极地在奥林匹克坝以北地区成功登记申请了3622平方公里的5个勘探矿权。根 据南澳大利亚州的铀放射测试地图,这五个矿权具有很强的铀辐射异常。正如图17所示,这5个探矿权具有很好的 寻找奥林匹克坝类型的高品位铀矿体的前景。
