Carawine has four gold, copper, cobalt and base metal projects, each targeting high-grade deposits in well-established mineralised provinces throughout Australia.
JAMIESON PROJECT (Au-Cu, Zn-Au-Ag)
The Jamieson Project is located near the township of Jamieson in north eastern Victoria and comprises granted exploration licence EL5523, covering an area of 34 km2 and containing the Hill 800 gold and Rhyolite Creek zinc-gold-silver prospects.
Hill 800 was discovered by New Holland Mining NL (New Holland) in 1994, following sampling of outcropping gold-rich gossans, with drilling returning results with significant widths and high gold grades. The deposit is a volcanic-hosted massive sulphide (VHMS) gold-copper system with similar host rock, age and mineralisation style to the 1.5Moz Henty gold deposit in Western Tasmania. The Rhyolite Creek Prospect, located about 5km south of Hill 800, was discovered in 2008, with diamond drilling intersecting a zone of strong alteration and sulphide mineralisation returning high grade zinc, gold and silver from an interpreted seafloor VHMS system.
OAKOVER PROJECT (Cu-Co, Co-Mn)
Located in the highly prospective Eastern Pilbara region of Western Australia, the Oakover Project comprises seven granted exploration licences and five exploration licence applications with a total area of about 3,260km2, held 100% by the Company. The Oakover Project is centred on the Proterozoic Oakover Basin and is prospective for copper, cobalt, manganese and iron.
PATERSON PROJECT (Au-Cu, Cu-Co)
The Paterson Project, situated in the Paterson Province at the eastern edge of the Pilbara Craton, is dominated by Proterozoic age rocks of the Rudall Metamorphic Complex and the overlying Yeneena Supergroup. The Paterson area is host to the Telfer Au-Cu deposit, and the Nifty and Maroochydore stratabound Cu-(Co) deposits. Carawine’s Paterson Project comprises six exploration licence applications over an area of about 1,074km2 across four regions: Lamil Hills, Trotman South, Red Dog and Baton.
FRASER RANGE PROJECT (Ni-Cu-Co)
The Fraser Range Project includes the granted Red Bull, Bindii, Big Bullocks and Similkameen tenements (held 49% by Carawine) and the Big Bang tenement application, all of whihc are prospective for magmatic nickel-sulphide deposits such as that at the Nova nickel-copper-cobalt operation. Carawine has a joint venture with Independence Group NL (IGONL), who currently hold a 51% interest in the granted tenements and can earn an additional 19% interest by spending $5 million by 2021. As a dedicated nickel explorer with a long term commitment to the region, the Company considers IGO is well placed to carry the Project forward, providing the Company with significant exposure to exploration success in the Fraser Range.
