Long time PNG minerals explorer Frontier Resources Limited reports that Aimex Geophysics has commenced an Aster satellite imagery study to better define the main geochemically anomalous zones of the the main project areas within the Muller exploration area in the Highlands.
The company said the study will also attempt to locate additional high alteration prospectivity zones proximal to them and regionally within the EL.
Frontier recently lodged a Muller, Exploration Licence EL-2356 renewal application was lodged with the Warden’s Court Hearing is scheduled for January 15th, 2018.
The company plans to initiate the Muller porphyry copper- gold moly exploration programe subsequent to the Hearing.
Frontier has also revealed that the Bulago (EL-1595) exploration programme will commence subsequent to Muller, with evaluation of skarn targets at the limestone/ intrusive contact and several ‘higher elevation’ Bulago Valley gold + base-metal silt + stream geochemical anomalies.
Frontier’s chairman Peter McNeil said the Muller EL is highly prospective for porphyry style copper-gold mineralisation and the exploration programme will target the Tingi Prospect, to better define drilling targets and include relocating areas of interest defined from soil geochemistry /rock outcrop /float sampling, evaluation of creek geology and hand trenching on possible strike extensions to previously defined mineralisation.
“This work should facilitate site visits by major companies interested in a possible Joint Venture. Gold, copper, zinc and molybdenum plans are attached showing thematic contouring of elements with geology or alteration,” Mr McNeil said.
