Prospect located 32 km south southeast of Kalgoorlie.
Placer drilled 9 inclined and vertical diamond drillholes (1,110 m total) spaced over a strike length of 180 m into the eastern contact of a serpentinite forming small lateritized outcrops which outline a unit about 150 m in surface width. Very fine-grained iron-nickel-copper sulphides enclosed in granular aggregates of magnetite were found in a dark, flinty, fine-grained serpentinite within 15 m of its east dipping intrusive contact with largely unaltered microgabbro.
9 valid minerals.
