HAMERSLEY IRON ORE
(70% Pathfinder Resources Ltd, 30% Cazaly Resources Ltd)
The Hamersley Project comprises Mining Lease (M47/1450) located 50 km northeast of Tom Price in the Pilbara Region of Western Australia. The Fortescue Metals Group’s Solomon Project lies immediately to the north. M47/1450 covers an area of approximately 10 km2 over the Winmar Deposit.
Previous work completed by Cazaly discovered a buried channel iron deposit (CID) at the Winmar Deposit from which a maiden Inferred Resource was announced to the ASX in 2010 and further upgraded in 2013 following extension and infill drilling. The resource has been recently updated by PF1 and is now reported in accordance with the Australasian Code for Reporting of Mineral Resources and Ore Reserves (2012) (JORC Code 2012) and is as follows:
Total Mineral Resource Inventory as at 30 June 2020
The results of the Mineral Resource review by Pathfinder Resources Ltd were announced to ASX on 24 January 2020, and were consistent with the Mineral Resource as previously reported. Initial metallurgical tests carried out on the Hamersley Project to date indicate potential to upgrade the CID material using a combination of conventional screening and gravity separation.
