Woodline Project (BUX)

 

The Woodline Project (E28/2620) is located between the Eyre Highway and the Trans Australia Railway Line about 160 km south‐east of Kalgoorlie.

 

 

Gold anomalism in the area was first identified by calcrete sampling which was followed-up by RAB drilling.  The RAB drilling returned a high concentration of plus 1 g/t Au assays, including 3 consecutive bottom of hole assays of 1.1, 2.1 and 3.2 g/t Au in holes WDR1815‐1817 respectively.  These results form the focal point of a plus 1 km south‐east striking zone of gold anomalous RAB holes.

The gold lies in a large zone of sericite‐chlorite-tourmaline schist close to a contact with andesitic metavolcanic schist. Anomalous gold values define a supergene blanket above fresh bedrock.  Minor mineralisation was intersected in limited deeper fresh rock RAB hammer drilling (3 m @ 0.14 g/t Au from 35‐38 m in WDR2399). 

The source of such an extensive supergene blanket of gold remains unexplained.
