The Newman Zinc Project consists of a large tenement position approximately 60km south west of Newman in Western Australia. The project is well provisioned for infrastructure with a gas pipeline from the North West shelf and the modern town of Newman nearby.
Brumby’s McArthur Project overlies Lower Proterozoic sediments which host some of the world’s largest zinc-lead-silver (Zn-Pb-Ag) deposits, including the McArthur River Zn-Pb-Ag deposit currently being mined by Glencore. The McArthur River Mine and other smaller mineral occurrences are located within the Batten Trough proximal to the Emu Fault Corridor, which extends through the McArthur tenements.
This greenstone belt, which hosts the highly successful Bounty Gold Mine and Flying Fox Nickel deposits, was recognised historically for its strategic metals potential but has had virtually no exploration for these commodities since the 1970s. Marindi’s applications build on information gathered from previous field experience working in the belt in the 1980s.
