Newcrest Identifies New Zone of Breccia Mineralisation at Havieron

 

Outstanding results from extensional drilling confirm the presence of new zone of higher-grade breccia mineralisation in the north west

 

Greatland Gold plc (AIM:GGP), the precious and base metals exploration and development company, is pleased to provide an update on Newcrest's drilling campaign at Greatland's Havieron deposit in the Paterson region of Western Australia.

 

Greatland notes the release of an ASX announcement titled "Quarterly Exploration Report" by Newcrest Mining Ltd ("Newcrest") earlier today.

 

Highlights

 

·      Footprint of mineralisation expands at Havieron with Newcrest reporting the intersection of a new zone of higher-grade breccia mineralisation in the north west.

·      Further excellent results from infill drilling continue to demonstrate geological and mineralisation continuity over the upper 600m vertical extent of the high-grade crescent sulphide zone and surrounding breccia.

·      Drill results to date continue to support the investigation of both high-grade selective and bulk mining methods.

·      Step out drilling continues to test depth and lateral extent of mineralisation.

·      Environmental and baseline studies progressing to support fast tracking of decline commencement at Havieron by end of calendar year 2020 or early 2021, subject to market and operating conditions and receipt of all necessary permits, consents and approvals.

·      Continuing to investigate potential to achieve commercial production within two to three years from commencement of decline.

 

Gervaise Heddle, Chief Executive Officer of Greatland Gold plc, commented: "The identification of a new zone of breccia mineralisation in the north west is an important and exciting development which further highlights the potential scale and significance of the Havieron gold-copper deposit. The early results from step out drilling indicate significant potential for additional breccia and high-grade, crescent-style mineralisation in the north west of the system, similar to that observed in the south east where the bulk of drilling has occurred to date. 

 

"Meanwhile, further excellent results from infill drilling, including 45.7m @ 6.5g/t Au, 0.70% Cu from 934.8m (HAD054W4), continue to improve grade distribution within the crescent zone and support the delivery of a maiden resource by the end of 2020. Concurrently, studies are in progress with a view to fast tracking the commencement of a decline and accelerating the time frame for commercial production."

 

Analytical results for HAD015W1, HAD021W1, HAD032W1, HAD045W1, HAD046, HAD046W1, HAD054W4, HAD057W2*, HAD057W3, HAD059W2, HAD064, HAD066*, HAD068, HAD068W1 have been received and are announced today. Selected significant intercepts are presented in Table 1.

Further Information on Newcrest Drilling and Operations at Havieron

 

Exploration activities at Havieron are operated by Newcrest under a Farm-in Agreement with Greatland. The Havieron deposit is centred on a magnetic anomaly located 45km east of Telfer. Exploration drilling by Greatland during 2018 resulted in the discovery of significant gold and copper mineralisation under 400m of post mineral cover. Newcrest commenced drilling at Havieron during the June 2019 quarter.

 

Analytical results released today from the Havieron project are considered outstanding, with a new higher-grade breccia zone identified in step out drilling in the north west (HAD046W1 and HAD066), in addition to further excellent results from infill drilling in the south east (HAD054W4, HAD021W1 and HAD057W3).

 

Significant results are presented in Table 1. A further 19,630m of new drilling is reported since the last drilling update (11 June 2020) for a total of 28,714m for the quarter to 30 June 2020. Results reported today are from a further 14 holes including wedges.  

 

Exploration has focused on infill drilling (with nominal drill spacing of 50 - 100m laterally, and 100m vertically) to support a maiden resource in the second half of the calendar year 2020, and step out drilling to define the extents of the Havieron deposit. The drilling results during the quarter continued to demonstrate the geological and mineralisation continuity over the upper 600m of the high-grade "crescent" sulphide zone and expanded the known mineralisation to the north west below the post mineralisation cover.

 

In the south east of the Havieron mineralised system, the high-grade sulphide zone forms a crescent shape ("crescent zone"). Grade distribution within the crescent zone continues to improve with increased drill density. The high-grade sulphide zone forms a crescent shape where the upper levels of the system (-170m to -400mRL) have an internal strike of 550m and an average width estimate of 20m. The mid level of the system (-400m to -600mRL) has an internal strike of 400m and an average width estimate of 20m. In the lower levels (-600m to -800mRL) where drill tested, the crescent zone tapers in strike length to 200m and approximately 20m wide.

 

The highest grade is concentrated in the upper levels of the crescent zone where it is associated with the highest concentration of sulphide mineralisation. The crescent zone is surrounded by breccia hosted mineralisation predominantly in the footwall which has a footprint of 550m in length and widths in excess of 100m. The higher grades in the breccia zone occur immediately adjacent to the crescent zone as demonstrated by previously reported hole HAD059 (109m @ 6.3g/t Au and 0.71% Cu from 668m), which has intersected both crescent and well developed breccia mineralisation. Deep drilling beyond the upper 600m window (-800mRL) also confirms the crescent zone extension transitions into a breccia dominant style of mineralisation. The crescent zone and proximal breccia mineralisation at the Havieron deposit remains open to the north-west, has been observed to over 1,000m below post mineral cover, and remains open at depth. The extents of the Havieron system are still to be defined.

 

Additional results, since Newcrest's Exploration Update on 11 June 2020, have confirmed the expanded footprint of both the crescent sulphide zone and breccia mineralisation by 220m. Step out drilling has intersected mineralisation in HAD066 returning 82.1m @ 2.4g/t Au and 0.08% Cu from 557.6m (previously reported). The high-grade intervals (including 1.5m @ 86g/t Au and 0.87% Cu from 586.5m) display geological character consistent with that observed in the upper parts of the crescent sulphide zone to the south east. Similar to the geology and the mineralisation observed in the south east, HAD066 also transitions into a variable sulphide carbonate dominated breccia which returned 128.7m @ 1.0g/t Au and 0.13% Cu from 734.1m. Encouragingly, an additional zone of higher grade breccia mineralisation has also been intersected in HAD046W1 returning 134.6m @ 2.5g/t Au and 0.07% Cu from 923m approximately 100m to the south east of the HAD066 breccia mineralisation. Importantly, this interval also included a high-grade zone returning 27.3m @ 10g/t Au and 0.13% Cu from 944.7m associated with more intense sulphide development. These results further advance the geological understanding of the system and indicate further potential for both additional breccia and high-grade, crescent-style mineralisation in this underexplored region.

 

The current ongoing drilling program is designed to expand the currently identified footprint of the mineralisation, targeting lateral and depth extents up to 1,000m below the unconformity where there is limited drilling as well as the delivery of a maiden inferred resource in the second half of calendar year 2020. Drill results to date continue to support the investigation of both high-grade selective and bulk mining methods.

 

Ongoing drilling will be supported by surface exploration activities including ground and airborne geophysics. A 30 line kilometre seismic survey has been commissioned to de-risk development activities and provide a better understanding of the regional geological and mine scale structural setting.

 

Studies are ongoing and include mining methods, hydrogeology, geotechnical, metallurgical, engineering and environmental to support delivery of a mineral resource estimate in the second half of calendar year 2020. Newcrest are currently progressing a Concept Study, with targeted completion in the second half of calendar year 2020, investigating the potential to develop the deposit under both underground selective mining and bulk mining alternatives.

 

Newcrest continues to investigate the potential to fast track an exploration decline at Havieron by the end of calendar year 2020 or early 2021, subject to market and operating conditions and receipt of all necessary permits, consents and approvals, along with the potential to achieve commercial production within two to three years from commencement of decline.

 

Newcrest has implemented and maintained measures to reduce and mitigate the risk of the COVID-19 pandemic to its project workforce and key stakeholders. Potential impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic on the drilling activity at Havieron are being actively managed and considered as part of the studies underway. There have been no COVID-19 cases at Havieron.

 

Stage 3 of the Farm-in continues. Currently, nine drill rigs remain operational. A 100 person camp is on-site to support ongoing operations. In order to complete Stage 3 of the Farm-in Agreement, Newcrest must spend an additional US$25 million and deliver a Pre-Feasibility study for the Havieron Project.

 

Additional drill hole information is presented in Appendix I and tabulated drill hole intercepts are presented in Appendix II.

 

Deposit mineralisation is hosted by metasedimentary (meta-sandstones, meta-siltstones and meta-carbonate) and intrusive rocks. Gold and copper mineralisation is hosted in breccia, vein and massive sulphide replacement styles, typical of intrusion-related and skarn types of mineralisation. The main sulphide mineral assemblage contains well developed pyrrhotite-chalcopyrite and pyrite. Alteration assemblages associated with mineralisation are amphibole-carbonate-biotite-sericite-chlorite. Higher grade gold zones (+10g/t Au) are often associated with quartz/chalcopyrite-pyrite veining.

 

 

Background to Havieron and Farm-in Agreement with Newcrest

 

In March 2019, Greatland entered into a Farm-in Agreement with Newcrest Operations Limited, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Newcrest Mining Limited (ASX:NCM), to explore and develop Greatland's Havieron gold-copper discovery in the Paterson region of Western Australia. Newcrest has the right to earn up to a 70% interest in a 12-block area within E45/4701 that covers the Havieron target by spending up to US$65m. Newcrest may acquire an additional 5% interest at the end of the Farm-in period at fair market value.

 

Newcrest has completed Stage 2 of the Farm-in Agreement. In accordance with the terms of the Agreement, Newcrest has earned a 40% interest in the Havieron Project. In order to complete Stage 3 of the Farm-in, Newcrest must incur an additional US$25 million in expenditure and deliver a Pre-Feasibility study for the Havieron Project. If Newcrest successfully completes Stage 3, Newcrest will earn an additional 20% Farm-in Interest (cumulative 60% Farm-in interest).

 

During the Farm-In period, Newcrest will have a first right of refusal over the remainder of Greatland Gold's Paterson projects (Black Hills, Paterson Range East and remainder of the Havieron licence). The Farm-in Agreement includes tolling principles reflecting the intention of the parties that, subject to a successful exploration programme and feasibility study, the resulting joint venture ore will be processed at Telfer, located 45km west of Havieron.

Notes for Editors:

 

Greatland Gold plc is a London Stock Exchange AIM-listed (AIM:GGP) natural resource exploration and development company with a current focus on precious and base metals. The Company has six main projects; four situated in Western Australia and two in Tasmania.

 

In March 2019, Greatland signed a Farm-in Agreement with Newcrest Operations Limited, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Newcrest Mining Limited (ASX:NCM), to explore and develop Greatland's Havieron gold-copper deposit in the Paterson region of Western Australia. Newcrest has the right to earn up to a 70% interest in a 12-block area within E45/4701 that covers the Havieron target by spending up to US$65 million.

 

Greatland is seeking to identify large mineral deposits in areas that have not been subject to extensive exploration previously. It is widely recognised that the next generation of large deposits will come from such under-explored areas and Greatland is applying advanced exploration techniques to investigate a number of carefully selected targets within its focused licence portfolio.

 

The Company is also actively investigating a range of new opportunities in precious and strategic metals and will update the market on new opportunities as and when appropriate.

Section 1 Sampling Techniques and Data

Criteria

Commentary

Sampling techniques

Diamond core samples are obtained from diamond drilling in Proterozoic basement lithologies. PQ-HQ and NQ diameter diamond core was drilled on a 6m run. Diamond core was cut using an automated core-cutter and half core sampled at 1m intervals with breaks for major geological changes. Sampling intervals range from 0.2 - 1.0m. Cover sequences were not sampled.

Drilling techniques

Permian Paterson Formation cover sequence was drilled using mud rotary drilling. Depths of cover typically observed to approximately 420m vertically below surface. Steel casing was emplaced to secure the pre-collar.

Diamond drilling was advanced from the base of the cover sequence with PQ3, HQ3 and NQ2 diameter coring configuration. 

Diamond core from inclined drill holes are oriented on 3m and 6m runs using an electronic core orientation tool (Reflex ACTIII). At the end of each run, the bottom of hole position is marked by the driller, which is later transferred to the whole drill core run length with a bottom of hole reference line.

Drill sample recovery

Diamond core recovery is systematically recorded from the commencement of diamond coring to end of hole, by reconciling against driller's depth blocks in each core tray with data recorded in the database. Drillers depth blocks provided the depth, interval of core recovered, and interval of core drilled.

Diamond core recoveries were typically 100%, with isolated zones of lower recovery.

Cover sequence drilling by the mud-rotary drilling did not yield recoverable samples.

Logging

Geological logging recorded qualitative descriptions of lithology, alteration, mineralisation, veining, and structure (for all diamond core drilled - 19,630m), including orientation of key geological features.

Geotechnical measurements were recorded including Rock Quality Designation (RQD) fracture frequency, solid core recovery and qualitative rock strength measurements.

Magnetic susceptibility measurements were recorded every metre. The bulk density of selected drill core intervals was determined at site on whole core samples.

All geological and geotechnical logging was conducted at Havieron site.

Digital data logging was captured on diamond drill core intervals only, and all data validated and stored in an AcQuire database.

All drill cores were photographed, prior to cutting and/or sampling the core.

Sub-sampling techniques and sample preparation

Sampling, sample preparation and quality control protocols are considered appropriate for the material being sampled.

Diamond core was cut and sampled at the Telfer and Havieron core processing facility. Half core samples were collected in pre-numbered calico bags and grouped in plastic bags for dispatch to the laboratory. Sample weights typically varied from 0.5 to 4kg. Sample sizes are considered appropriate for the style of mineralisation. Drill core samples were freighted by air and road to the laboratory.

Sample preparation was conducted at Intertek Laboratory, Perth. Samples were dried at 105oC, and crushed to 95% passing 4.75mm, and then split to obtain up to 3kg sub-sample, which was pulverised (using LM5) to produce a pulped product with the minimum standard of 95% passing 106μm.

Duplicate samples were collected from crush and pulp samples at a rate of 1:20. Duplicate results show an acceptable level of variability for the material sampled and style of mineralisation.

Periodic size checks (1:20) for crush and pulp samples and sample weights are provided by the laboratory and recorded in the AcQuire database.  

Quality of assay data and laboratory tests

Assaying of diamond drill core samples was conducted at Intertek, Perth. All samples were assayed for 48 elements using a 4-acid digestion followed by ICP-AES/ICP-MS determination (method 4A/MS907). Gold analyses were determined by 50g fire assay with AAS finish (method FA50N/AA).

Sampling and assaying quality control procedures consisted of inclusion of certified reference material (CRMs), coarse residue and pulp duplicates with each batch (at least 1:20).

Assays of quality control samples were compared with reference samples in AcQuire database and verified as acceptable prior to use of data from analysed batches.

Laboratory quality control data, including laboratory standards, blanks, duplicates, repeats and grind size results are captured in AcQuire database and assessed for accuracy and precision for recent data.

Extended quality control programs including pulp samples submitted to an umpire laboratory and combined with more extensive re-submission programs have been completed.

Analysis of the available QC sample assay results indicates that an acceptable level of accuracy and precision has been achieved and the database contains no analytical data that has been numerically manipulated.

The assaying techniques and quality control protocols used are considered appropriate for the data to be used for reporting exploration drilling results.

Verification of sampling and assaying

Sampling intervals defined by the Geologist are electronically assigned sample identification numbers prior to core cutting. Corresponding sample numbers matching pre-labelled calico bags are assigned to each interval.

All sampling and assay information were stored in a secure AcQuire database with restricted access.

Electronically generated sample submission forms providing the sample identification number accompany each submission to the laboratory. Assay results from the laboratory with corresponding sample identification are loaded directly into the AcQuire database.

Assessment of reported significant assay intervals was verified by re-logging of diamond drill core intervals and assessment of high resolution core photography. The verification of significant intersections has been completed by company personnel and the Competent Person.

No adjustments are made to assay data, and no twinned holes have been completed. Drilling intersects mineralisation at various angles.  

Location of data points

Drill collar locations were surveyed using a differential GPS with GNSS with a stated accuracy of +/- 0.5m for all drill holes reported.

Drill rig alignment was attained using an electronic azimuth aligner. Downhole survey was collected at 6-12m intervals in the cover sequence, and every 6 to 30m in diamond drill core segments of the drill hole using single shot (Axis Mining Champ Gyro). The single shot surveys have been validated using continuous survey to surface (Axis Mining Champ) along with a selection of drillholes re-surveyed by an external survey contactor using a DeviGyro tool - confirming sufficient accuracy for downhole spatial recording.

Topographic control is established from SRTM (1 second) topographic data and derived digital elevation model. The topography is generally low relief to flat, with an average elevation of 265 m, within dune corridors.

All collar coordinates are provided in the Geocentric Datum of Australian (GDA94 Zone 51S). 

Data spacing and distribution

The drill hole spacing ranges from 50 - 100m within the south-eastern Crescent sulphide zone and 50 - 300m in lateral extent within the breccia zone, over an area of ~2km2.

Significant assay intercepts remain open. Further drilling is required to determine the extent of currently defined mineralisation. No sample compositing is applied to samples.

Orientation of data in relation to geological structure

Drill holes exploring the extents of the Havieron Mineral System intersect moderately dipping carbonate and siliclastic sedimentary facies, mineralised breccia and sub-vertical intrusive lithologies. Mineralised zones have been modelled to be steeply dipping and have an arcuate shape, which remains open to the north west, and at depth. Geological modelling has been interpreted from historic and Newcrest drill holes.

Drilling direction has been oriented to intersect perpendicular to modelled positions of the high grade sulphide mineralisation zones; oriented to intersect the mineralised zone at an intersection angle of greater than 40 degrees.

The high grade arcuate crescent sulphide zone has an average thickness of 20m and has been defined over a strike length of up to 550 m, and over 600m in vertical extent below cover. Mineralised breccias are observed within a footprint of 550m and widths in excess of 100m, however the orientation and extents of the breccia bodies are yet to be fully defined by drilling and remain open at depth and to the north west.

Sample security

 The security of samples is controlled by tracking samples from drill rig to database.

Drill core was delivered from the drill rig to the Havieron core yard every shift. On completion of geological and geotechnical logging, core was transported by vehicle to Telfer core processing facility by Newcrest personnel.

High resolution core photography and cutting of drill core was undertaken at the Havieron or Telfer core processing facility.

Samples were freighted in sealed bags by air and road to the Laboratory, and in the custody of Newcrest representatives. Sample numbers are generated directly from the database. All samples are collected in pre-numbered calico bags.

Verification of sample numbers and identification is conducted by the laboratory on receipt of samples, and sample receipt advise issued to Newcrest.

Details of all sample movement are recorded in a database table. Dates, Hole ID sample ranges, and the analytical suite requested are recorded with the dispatch of samples to analytical services. Any discrepancies logged at the receipt of samples into the analytical services are validated.

Audits or reviews

Due to the limited duration of the program, no external audits or reviews have been undertaken. Internal verification and audit of Newcrest exploration procedures and databases are periodically undertaken.

 

 

Section 2 Reporting of Exploration Results

Criteria

Commentary

Mineral tenement and land tenure status

The Havieron Project is entirely contained within 12 sub-blocks of E45/4701, which is 100% owned by Greatland Pty Ltd. Newcrest has entered into an Exploration Farm-In (EFI) agreement with Greatland Pty Ltd and Greatland Gold Plc effective 12 March 2019, with Newcrest as Manager of the Havieron Project. The Stage 2 expenditure commitment of US$20m under the Farm-in agreement with Greatland Gold has been met. Newcrest has earned a 40% interest in the project and is in stage three of a four stage Farm-in, in which Newcrest has the right to earn up to a 70% interest and acquire a further 5% at fair market value.

Newcrest and WDLAC are parties to an Indigenous Land Use Agreement (ILUA) which relates to the use of native title land for Newcrest's current operations at Telfer and its activities within a 60-km radius around Telfer, and includes its exploration activities at Havieron. The parties have agreed that the ILUA will apply to any future development activities by the Joint Venture Participants (Newcrest and Greatland) at Havieron.

All obligations with respect to legislative requirements including minimum expenditure are maintained in good standing. The exploration tenement E45/4701 was first granted 17 July 2017 for 5 years, expiring 16 July 2022.

Exploration done by other parties

Newcrest Mining Limited completed six diamond core holes in the vicinity of the Havieron Project from 1991 to 2003. Greatland Gold completed drill targeting and drilling of 9 Reverse Circulation (RC) drill holes with diamond tails for a total of approximately 6,800m in 2018. Results of drilling programs conducted by Greatland Gold have previously been reported on the Greatland Gold web site.

Drilling has defined an intrusion-related mineral system with evidence of breccia and massive sulphide-hosted higher-grade gold-copper mineralisation.

Geology

The Havieron Project is located within the north-western exposure of the Palaeo-Proterozoic to Neoproterozoic Paterson Orogen (formerly Paterson Province), 45 km east of Telfer.  The Yeneena Supergroup hosts the Havieron prospect and consists of a 9 km thick sequence of marine sedimentary rocks, and is entirely overlain by approximately 420m of Phanerozoic sediments of the Paterson Formation and Quaternary aeolian sediments.

Gold and copper mineralisation at Havieron consist of breccia, vein and massive sulphide replacement gold and copper mineralisation typical of intrusion-related and skarn styles of mineralisation. Mineralisation at the prospect is hosted by metasedimentary rocks (meta-sandstones, meta-siltstones and meta-carbonate) and intrusive rocks of an undetermined age. The main mineral assemblage contains well developed pyrrhotite-chalcopyrite and pyrite sulphide mineral assemblages as breccia and vein infill, and massive sulphide lenses. The main mineralisation event is associated with amphibole-carbonate-biotite-sericite-chlorite wall rock alteration. Drilling has partially defined the extents of mineralisation which are observed over 550m within an arcuate shaped mineralised zone, and to depths of up to -1,100mRL.  

Drill hole Information

As provided.

Data aggregation methods

Significant assay intercepts are reported as (A) length-weighted averages exceeding 1.0g/t Au greater than or equal to 10 m, with less than 5m of consecutive internal dilution; and (B) length-weighted averages exceeding 0.2g/t Au for greater than or equal to 20m, with less than 10m of consecutive internal dilution, and (C) and intervals of >30 gram metres (calculated as the weighted average of consecutive assayed interval multiplied by the Au grade in ppm exceeding a value 30). No top cuts are applied to intercept calculations.

Relationship between mineralisation widths and intercept lengths

Significant assay intervals reported represent apparent widths. Drilling is not always perpendicular to the dip of mineralisation and true widths are less than downhole widths. Estimates of true widths will only be possible when all results are received, and final geological interpretations have been completed.

Diagrams

Balanced reporting

This is the ninth release of Exploration Results for this project made by Newcrest. The initial Newcrest release is dated 25 July 2019. The second release is dated 10 September 2019. The third release is dated 24 October 2019. The fourth release is dated 2 December 2019. The fifth release is dated 30 January 2020. The sixth release is dated 11 March 2020. The seventh release is dated 30 April 2020 and the eight release is dated 11 June 2020. Earlier reporting of exploration programs conducted by Newcrest and Greatland Gold have previously been reported. Exploration drilling programs are ongoing and further material results will be reported in subsequent Newcrest releases.

Other substantive exploration data

Nil.

Further work

Further work is planned to evaluate exploration opportunities that extend the known mineralisation. Initial drilling conducted by Newcrest has confirmed higher grade mineralisation, broadened mineralised extents defined by prior drilling and extended the depth of observed mineralisation of the Havieron project. The results of drilling to date indicate the limits of mineralisation have been closed off to the north east, south west and south east, and remain open to the north west, and at depth. Drilling programs at Havieron are ongoing with nine drill rigs currently in operation.

 

APPENDIX II

Drillhole Data

Havieron Prospect, Paterson, Western Australia

Reporting Criteria: Intercepts reported are Au >0.20ppm (0.2g/t Au) and minimum 20m downhole width with maximum consecutive internal dilution of 10m. Also highlighted are high grade intervals of Au >1.0ppm (1g/t Au) and minimum 10m downhole width with maximum consecutive internal dilution of 5m, and intervals of >30 gram metres (calculated as the weighted average of consecutive assayed interval multiplied by the Au grade in ppm exceeding a value 30) are tabled. Au grades are reported to two significant figures. Samples are from diamond core drilling which is PQ, HQ or NQ in diameter. Core is photographed and logged by the geology team before being cut. Half core PQ, HQ and NQ samples are prepared for assay and the remaining material is retained in the core farm for future reference. Each assay batch is submitted with duplicates and standards to monitor laboratory quality. Total depth (end of hole) rounded to 1 decimal place for reporting purposes.
