East Kimberley (WA) Overview
Since 2012 Ora Gold has significantly reduced and simplified its portfolio of project holdings in the East Kimberley, consistent with its stated strategy of project rationalisation and specific commodity focus.
All previous nickel interests have been surrendered or sold, with the exception of Keller Creek (also known as Frog Hollow) adjacent to Panoramic Resources Ltd’s operating Savannah Nickel Mine. Ora Gold retains a 20% free carried interest in this project operated by Panoramic.
Sophie Downs contains two prospects of interest – Ilmars, where a number of previous explorers have found highly anomalous metal intercepts without locating anything of commercial size; and the Little Mount Isa prospect located on the Halls Creek Fault Zone. Ora Gold Limited has identified good zinc intersections when drilling at Little Mount Isa. Further work to test the potential at depth is planned.
