Big picture - Why invest in Core Exploration Ltd

Core Exploration Ltd Snapshot

Core Exploration Ltd aims to grow shareholder value through the exploration for and discovery of commercially robust base metal and uranium deposits in South Australia and the Northern Territory.

Core Exploration's projects have been carefully acquired in geology which hosts world-class mines and within some of the most prospective geological terrains for base metals and uranium in Australia.


Finniss Lithium Project, NT

Core’s NT Lithium Project includes the Mount Finniss Tin Tantalum Mine – the largest historically producing tin and tantalum pegmatite mine in the NT, and a further 25 historic tin tantalum pegmatite mines in the lithium rich Bynoe pegmatite field.

Anningie and Barrow Creek Pegmatite Fields, NT

Core has further expanded its dominant position in the NT tin tantalum pegmatite fields through applications for 2,500 sq km of additional lithium prospective tenements in the lithium-rich Anningie and Barrow Creek pegmatite fields near Mt Peake.

Copper and Base Metals

Jervois Domain, NT

The Company’s analysis of geophysics, geology and newly developing mineralising models has defined a large prospective zone at its Jervois Domain project in the Northern Territory. Core’s four tenements 100% owned surround KGL’s tenements and cover approximately 280 square kilometres in the highly prospective Jervois region 200km north east of Alice Springs, Northern Territory.

Albarta Project, NT

Core has built a strong, strategic holding - through joint venture, acquisition and new tenement applications - in the most significant zone of IOCG prospectivity defined by GA. Core’s Albarta Project covers 2,000km² around the A1 IOCG (Iron-Oxide-Copper-Gold) prospectivity zone of the Aileron province in the Northern Territory, 100km NE of Alice Springs.

Inkheart/Bluey's Prospect, NT

Very high grades of 4.0kg/t (4,000g/t) silver and 10% copper at surface have been identified in surface rock-chip sampling at the Blueys Prospect within the Company’s Albarta Project in the Northern Territory.

Yerelina Project, SA

Core Exploration’s newly granted Yerelina tenement, EL 5015, covers close to 1,000 square kilometres adjacent to the Company’s Fitton Project in northern South Australia.

Roxby Downs Project, SA

The Roxby Downs EL 4906 and Horse Well EL 4816 tenement applications cover approximately 522km² of the Olympic Copper-Gold Province of the Gawler Craton. The tenements are located approximately 30km southwest of the world class Olympic Dam Cu–Au-U mine and within kilometres, and adjacent to, known IOCG-U mineralisation at the Acropolis, Acropolis West and Aphrodite prospects. Exploration targets are beneath more than 500m of cover sediment in most locations. Targets defined first by gravity and magnetic surveys will require diamond drill testing.

Yorke Peninsula Project, SA

Core Exploration’s Yorke Peninsula Copper Project covers 243km² of the Olympic Copper-Gold-Uranium Province of the Gawler Craton. The Yorke Peninsula Project is located adjacent to the west of Rex Minerals (ASX:RXM) tenements on the Yorke Peninsula in South Australia.


Fitton Project, SA

The Fitton Project comprises a number of exploration licences covering prospective Mt Painter and Eromanga Basin geology - well known for hosting large uranium deposits and mines including the currently operating Beverley, Beverly North and Four Mile uranium mines. Core first discovered uranium at Fitton with the Company’s first drilling campaign on the project. Core’s drilling has hit thick and high grade uranium intercepts.

Entia Project, NT
