About Australian Goldfields
The Company has an extensive land package located in the historic Pilbara Mining District of Western Australia. The package is comprised of five separate claim groups, prospective for precious metals, base metals and lithium. Proceeds from the Private Placement will be used to further evaluate the following areas as a priority:
The Cuprite East (6,935 hectares) and Cuprite West (2,980 hectares) Projects are two non-contiguous claim blocks located in the Pilbara Region of Western Australia. The region has a history of lithium exploration and production, with recent local developments drawing the interest of the Company. A surface sample program of 1,246 points was recently completed on the Cuprite West area, results are pending. A LandSat Program is also planned for both blocks.
A site visit was recently completed at the Nortia Project and returned surface pegmatite float. The project is comprised of 5,510 hectares, and a LandSat program is planned to better identify potential in situ pegmatite.
The Beatons River claim group is comprised of 355 square kilometers, and is adjacent to the gold discovery and now resource of Novo Resources Corp. Recent exploration has confirmed the presence of similar conglomerate which hosts the adjacent gold resource. An extensive exploration plan is being developed to better assess this challenging nugget gold target. Mechanical bulk sampling is likely the next phase of exploration.
Adrian F. C. Hobkirk, President and CEO of the Company, is quoted, “We are very pleased to fully fund the exploration programs pending for 2022. In addition, the now strong balance sheet will allow the Company to review further acquisitions to enhance project inventory.”
