Strategic Elements Ltd (ASX:SOR) has revealed that the wholly-owned Maria Resources, in collaboration with Dr Franco Pirajno, has conducted a logistics program on its unexplored permit (without native title) in the deserts of the Officer Basin, Western Australia.
The company and Dr Pirajno believe that focusing on a combination of unexplored frontier areas with deposit models more commonly found overseas may provide opportunities for making a significant new discovery in Western Australia.
The 54,000 square kilometres of desert surrounding the Officer Project is virtually unexplored with only four companies ever having been active in the area.
The wider Officer Project contains over 700 square kilometres of permits in frontier terrain where the company will be the first explorer into the ground.
The team is initially focused on a copper-silver-cobalt model more commonly found in
Europe called “Kupfershiefer”.
However, it is important to note that the area was last mapped by the WA government in the 1970’s and the potential for other styles of mineralisation exists.
A report from this program including geological observations will be released when received by the company, expected within the next few weeks.
Strategic said that it is planning to follow up the 190 kilometres of totally unexplored outcrop identified by Geoscience Australia with low cost surface sampling.
