Fraser Range Project
FRASER RANGE PROJECT
IGO 70% - 100%
Fraser Range region, east of Kalgoorlie, in Western Australia
Nickel (Ni), Copper (Cu), Cobalt (Co)
IGO has consolidated the largest ground position of any company in the Fraser Range region. We currently hold approximately 15,000km2 of tenure that is highly prospective for orthomagmatic Ni-Cu-Co and volcanic-hosted Cu-Zn-Au deposits.
The Fraser Range is a frontier belt that is significantly under explored. It demands an innovative, systematic and ambitious work program to unlock its true potential - and IGO is up to the task.
We are proud to have alliances and joint ventures with Arrow Minerals, Buxton Resources, Carawine Resources, Creasy Group, Orion Minerals, Rumble Resources and TasEx Geological.
Since 2016, the IGO geological field team has completed over 260,000m of aircore, RC and diamond drilling, collected data from >90,000 gravity stations, flown >40,000km of Airborne Electromagnetics, received >75,000 geochemistry samples for interpretation and followed up several geophysical and geochemical targets with >400km of ground electromagnetic surveys.
Night-shift aircore drilling was also recently introduced into the regional program; an Australian first, and Spectrem and Superconducting Quantum Interference Device Electromagnetic (SQUID EM) technology has been undertaken to ensure deep penetration anomaly detection.
IGO is in the fortunate position to have Nova-Bollinger as a natural laboratory that our in-mine and near-mine geoscience teams use to drive and focus research initiatives, helping us to explore for new deposits, both immediately around Nova-Bollinger and more broadly across the Fraser Range region.
The Fraser Range exploration team has already been successful in finding the Andromeda Cu-Zn deposit located 75km north of Nova and is looking forward to drill testing more than 20 high priority targets in the FY19 year.
