Dreadnought controls the second largest land holding in the highly prospective West Kimberley region of WA. The main project area, Tarraji-Yampi, is located only 85kms from Derby and has been locked up as a Defence Reserve since 1978.
Tarraji-Yampi presents a rare first mover opportunity with known outcropping mineralisation and historic workings from the early 1900’s which have seen no modern exploration.
Results to date indicate that there may be a related, large scale, Proterozoic Cu-Au-Ag-Bi-Sb-Co system at Tarraji-Yampi, similar to Cloncurry / Mt Isa in Queensland and Tennant Creek in the Northern Territory.
Mangaroon is a first mover opportunity covering ~5,300sq kms located 250kms south-east of Exmouth in the vastly underexplored Gascoyne Region of WA. Dreadnought’s 100% owned areas contain outcropping high-grade gold bearing quartz veins along the Edmund and Minga Bar Faults and outcropping high-grade REE ironstones, similar to those under development at the Yangibana REE Project.
Recently, six potentially REE bearing carbonatite intrusions have been identified which may also be the source of the regional rare earths.
Part of the project is targeting Ni-Cu-PGE and is subject to an earn in with First Quantum Minerals (earning up to 70%). The joint venture area contains outcropping high tenor Ni-Cu-PGE blebby sulphides in the recently defined Money Intrusion.
The Central Yilgarn Projects
The Central Yilgarn Projects are located ~190 kms from Kalgoorlie and upon Completion will comprise fourteen tenements (~1,600 sq kms) covering ~150km of strike along the majority of the Illaara, Yerilgee and Evanston greenstone belts. The Central Yilgarn Projects have now been consolidated through an acquisition from Newmont, Arrow Minerals and further deals with local prospectors over Metzke’s Find, Kings iron ore and others.
Prior to Newmont and Arrow, the Central Yilgarn was held by parties looking to develop iron ore mines north of the Koolyanobbing Iron Ore Operation. Given the long history of iron ore mining in the region, the Central Yilgarn is well situated in relation to existing road and rail infrastructure connecting it to a number of export ports.
Historically, gold was discovered and worked at Rainy Rocks, Metzke’s Find and Lawrence’s Find in the early to mid 1900s. In addition to gold, outcropping VMS base metals mineralisation was identified and briefly tested in the 1970s and 1980s with no subsequent exploration utilising modern techniques.
Bresnahan is located ~125km southwest of Newman in the Ashburton Basin. The project comprises ~3,700 sq kms covering over 200kms strike along the Bresnahan Basin / Wyloo Group unconformity.
Bresnahan is prospective for unconformity related heavy rare earth (“HREE”) deposits similar to Browns Range HREE deposits and mesothermal lode gold similar to Paulsen’s Au-Ag-Sb deposits along strike.
Prior to consolidation by Dreadnought, the Bresnahan Basin had only been explored for unconformity uranium with limited exploration for mesothermal gold.
Bresnahan is a first mover opportunity to explore for unconformity HREE.
