Curnamona Province

The Curnamona Province is Early Proterozoic to Middle Proterozoic terrain straddling the border with South Australia and New South Wales. This fertile terrain hosts the giant Broken Hill lead-zinc-silver ore bodies and numerous copper-gold, base metal and uranium deposits.  The Curnamona Province is prospective for Iron-Oxide Copper-Gold (IOCG) style mineralisation, Mount Isa-style copper mineralisation as well as stratiform and stratabound styles of lead-zinc-silver mineralisation.

Frome Joint Venture Project

The Frome Joint venture project (Red Metal earning 70% from Variscan Mines Limited) covers a series of high amplitude magnetic targets located along the northern margin of the Curnamona Province which Red Metal considers prospective for  large Iron Oxide Copper-Gold (IOCG) and Iron Sulphide Copper-Gold (ISCG) breccia systems.

Limited drilling on high-amplitude magnetic anomalies in the district has intersected wide zones of hydrothermal breccia which compare favorably with the geology of copper-gold breccia systems in the proven Gawler Craton and Mount Isa Inlier. 

Recent drilling on the high-amplitude magnetic target, referred to as the “Woolatchi” anomaly, has intersected strong hydrothermal magnetite alteration with abundant iron sulphides (pyrrhotite). Although only weakly mineralised with copper, the Woolatchi drill hole (WO-17-01) highlights the exploration potential for iron sulphide styles of copper mineralisation in this frontier region.  Several other magnetic breccia targets remain to be tested with a first-pass drill hole.
