Far Southeast project - Deposit geology
The FSE copper-gold porphyry is a deeply concealed deposit associated with a Pleistocene diorite-dacite intrusion complex intruded into Eocene basaltic country rocks. The intrusion complex is cross-cut by several phreatomagmatic breccia pipes which are pre-, syn- and post-mineralisation. The mineralisation is mostly hosted in the intrusion complex and to a lesser extent the basaltic country rocks and is characterised by disseminated sulphides and multi-phase sulphide-bearing quartz and quartz-anhydrite vein sets and stock works.
No exploration or additional conceptual mine design studies were conducted on the FSE project during 2017.
