Mt. Roe Project
The Mt. Roe Project is located approximately 30 km South of Karratha, and the Port of Dampier, in the Pilbara region of Western Australia.
The Pilbara region is well known for its gold potential and of reported ‘Witwatersrand-style’ gold bearing conglomerate discoveries. The region has excellent infrastructure with major roads, railways, ports and power.
The Project encompasses a 1,232 ha land package within the Pilbara region, immediately adjacent to Novo Resource’s Karratha Gold Project.
Gold nuggets found at Mt. Roe show similar characteristics to the recent gold discoveries by Novo Resources, Artemis Resources and De Grey Mining, in the same region.
Topography at Mt. Roe consists of flat terrain with rolling hills. There is good potential that gold-bearing conglomerates occur at the base of the Basalt. Conglomerates have been traced and interpreted for over 5 km of continuous strike length which remains open to the North, South and dipping beneath the Mt. Roe Basalt.
Gold nuggets discovered on the Project are mostly flattened and coarse with rounded edges giving them the appearance of watermelon seeds, similar to those found on adjacent Karratha Gold Project.
Flattened, rounded and pitted ‘melon seed’ nuggets found immediately adjacent to outcropping conglomerate.
