Exploration Drilling Grant Initiative (EDGI) – New Data Now Available

Mineral Resources Tasmania has now released to Open File, Final Reports from two more EDGI co-funded drilling projects, completed in 2020.

The reports cover the following projects:

Basin Lake (Copper-Gold-Silver-Lead-Zinc) – Hole LMD5 – Moina Gold Pty Ltd

Moxon (Gold) – Hole MXUD04 – Henty Gold Pty Ltd

Data includes the Final Reports as well as all available geological, assay and hyperspectral data.  Drill core is available for viewing, by appointment, at the Mornington Core Library.

The Basin Lake hole was abandoned in bad ground, well short of the planned target depth. In the Moxon hole anomalous gold only occurred near surface but trace base metal mineralisation was intersected in sheared black shale near the Henty Fault.
