Lake Johnston Project
The Lake Johnston Project comprises one exploration licence application (ELA 63/2091) covering an area of 31 sub-blocks (~63km2) located adjacent to the Archaean Lake Johnston greenstone belt and covers a portion of the Jimberlana Dyke.
Location and access
The Lake Johnston Project is located approximately 105km west of Norseman and covers the large salt pans of Lake Johnston. Access to the east of Norseman is via gravel Hyden–Norseman Road (which passes through the width of the tenement) and numerous tracks along Lake Johnston. The Emily Ann and Maggie Hays nickel projects lie to the west of Lake Johnston.
Prospectivity and work plan
The work completed by previous owner Avoca indicates that the Jimberlana Dyke is prospective for both magmatic PGE mineralisation and contact style massive nickel-copper sulphide mineralisation. Ground-based electromagnetic geophysical techniques are planned to assess some of the airborne EM anomalies discovered. Subject to the exploration licence application being granted, further RC drilling may be warranted on selected targets from EM anomalies to test the PGM and Ni-Cu anomalies.
