Geophysical Survey Identify Five IP Anomalies on a Granted Mining Lease.

The Empire IRGS Project in North QLD.

Far Northern Resources Limited ASX (FNR) is pleased to announce that it has successfully completed the Pole Dipole Induced Polarisation (PDIP) geophysical survey covering the Empire Mining Lease (ML20380) in far north Queensland.


Highlights

  • Pole Dipole Induced Polarisation has delineated five new chargeability high anomalies over the Empire North and Empire South on ML20380. (Fig 1)
  • The survey covered 13 lines over 19.7km using 50m & 100 dipole-dipole.
  • The five new anomalies are characterised by high chargeability with associated structurally controlled resistivity low.
  • Targets 1 and 2 appear to be close to surface and structurally controlled with chargeability high over some 400m. (Fig 3 & 4) with Target 1 appearing to dip to the northwest.
  • Target 3,4 & Target 5 appear to be connected on an arcuate structure, some 800m in length. (Fig 5, 6 & 7)
  • This is the first systematic IP survey over the Mining Lease. No part of the 5 anomalies has been drill tested to date.
  • FNR is finalising a drilling plan for mid July 2024.
  • The Mining Lease incorporates two breccia pipes with gold bearing epithermal quartz veins mantling the eastern flank totalling a JORC of 23,000Oz Au.

The survey was designed to test first the extent of the porphyry discovered at depth beneath Empire North from the latest drilling by FNR. Secondly, to help delineate the area to the south over the copper gold projects that were highlighted by airborne magnetic survey and the recent rock chips reported in April (ASX Announcement 15/04/2024). The key focus of the PDIP survey was to better define the structural controls of the Mining Lease taking into consideration the magnetic low anomalies, the two breccia pipes and the historic mine shafts and pits at Empire South.

The survey data has confirmed three new large and two smaller chargeability anomalies associated with the magnetics (Fig 2) and has allowed FNR’s technical team to locate and plan new drill targets within the project area ahead of the planned drilling in July this year.

Chris Vermeulen: Bullish on Gold, Silver and Miners, Price Targets to Watch

Chris Vermeulen, chief market strategist at TheTechnicalTraders.com, shared his next price target for gold, as well as his outlook for silver and precious metals miners in the months and years to come.

While he expects a stock market correction to weigh on these assets, they are set to perform well before and after.

"When I'm looking at the daily chart of gold, it is pointing to about US$2,650 to US$2,750 (per ounce) for gold over the next two to three months. So I'm still very bullish on gold," Vermeulen said during the conversation.

Horizon Minerals Gearing Up for Gold Production in September 2024, CEO Says

Horizon Minerals (ASX:HRZ) will begin production at the Boorara gold project by September 2024 amid a continuing strong gold price environment, according to CEO Grant Haywood.

The company’s recent merger with Greenstone Resources added about 0.5 million ounces of high-grade resources to Horizon, taking its total resource to 1.8 million ounces. With a large resource base, the company is implementing a dual-track strategy to advance the combined assets.

“The two strains of the strategy are near-term cashflow. And the idea is that we'll develop and mine our assets using existing infrastructure in the region … So we're able to leverage up those processing facilities and use contract mining to mine some assets. But we have aspirations of being a mid-tier gold producer as well,” Haywood said.
