Big Picture – A Deep Dive Examination of Peninsula Mines Ltd
Peninsula Mines Ltd Snapshot
Peninsula Mines Ltd (ASX:PSM) is an Australian-listed mineral resources company advancing opportunities for mineral discovery and development in South Korea. Peninsula’s focus is on commodities which have a positive price outlook and potential off-take in-country.
Base Metal Projects
South Korean Base Metals Projects
Ubeong Base Metals Project
- Over 70 high-grade, historical workings were identified at Chilbo prospect
- Along strike of Kumho Zinc Mine, 10km to the west
- Detailed ground magnetic survey has confirmed structural controls to mineralisation
- Detailed soil sampling has confirmed zinc-silver and copper-gold zoning
- Further ground geophysics and surface sampling underway
- Ubeong Project fast-tracked for diamond drill targeting
- Detailed IP geophysics completed
- Diamond drill underway at Copperhead
South Korean Gold Projects
Osu Gold-Silver Project
- Extensive historical underground mining at Osu, extending over 1.5km, highlighted the mineral potential of this Project
- Regional aeromagnetics has defined a major magnetic high beneath Mount Pal Gong, directly below historical workings
- 30m of channel sampling at surface across the major, north-south trending, mineralised shear zone generated results including 5.7m @3.14g/t Au
- Diamond drilling is planned to determine continuity of mineralisation below historical workings
Camel Hills Project
- The large Camel Hills Project in central Western Australia, has been explored for gold, iron, and nickel-copper.
- The tenure has been reduced to focus on two VTEM anomalies, interpreted as potential massive sulphides in buried, layered ultramafics, coincident with copper-nickel anomalism in soils.
- Diamond drilling at VTEM1 intersected massive magnetite bands in granulite metamorphosed ultramafics.
- Further drilling of these deep drill targets in this remote location has been deferred in favour of other projects.
South Korean Graphite Projects
South Korean Graphite Business Development
- South Korea is a major producer of Li-Ion batteries but depends on China for graphite anode raw materials
- Peninsula has secured tenure over five historically recorded graphite deposits in South Korea
- Peninsula is developing sustainable graphite processing techniques to add value to raw materials
Peninsula continues to develop key industry relationships with Korean battery manufacturers and graphite consumers
South Korean Lithium Projects
Regional geochemistry highlighted lithium anomalism in a zone of granite-related pegmatites near the Boam Lithium Mine.
