SUBIACO: AIC Mines Limited has commenced initial field work at its Lamil Gold-Copper project in the Paterson Province, East Pilbara, Western Australia.
The Lamil Project is a conceptual exploration project with a previously unrecognised and untested Telfer look-alike “domal” aero magnetic signature. The project secures an area of 1,375km2 and is located midway between the world class Telfer Gold-Copper mine, located just 30 kilometres to the northeast, and the Nifty Copper mine to the immediate west.
An ultra-detailed airborne magnetic survey completed earlier in the year by joint venture partner Rumble Resources highlighted several anomalies including a major domal structure, which has many important similarities to Telfer.
Following the receipt of land access approvals, AIC has now commenced its initial phase of field work including ground based gravity surveys; ground-based passive seismic surveys; and geochemical orientation surveys.
The principal aims of this work are to refine the depth to basement models and the regional structural interpretation of the target areas, and to determine the effectiveness of surface geochemical techniques over the target areas. The information from these surveys will be integrated with the existing ultra-detailed airborne magnetic data to better map the possible source structures for gold and copper mineralisation and to ultimately guide targeting of future exploration drilling programs.
