Mary Mia Project

Peak Hill District WA, Joint Venture with Australian Mines Limited (Riedel Resources currently 51% Interest)

On 30 April 2014 Riedel announced the key terms and conditions of a farm-in and joint venture arrangement over exploration licences 52/2394 and 52/2395 (“the Marymia Project”) with Australian Mines Limited (ASX: AUZ, “Australian Mines”).  A Heads of Agreement was signed by the parties and if the farm-in and joint venture arrangement proceeds to its full conclusion, the earn-in will be worth up to $3.3M.

The Mary Mia project area is located approximately 180km northeast of Meekatharra in the Peak Hill district of Western Australia and lies within the Mary Mia Dome.  The project comprises two large contiguous exploration licenses which overlie most of the Baumgarten Greenstone Belt, occupying a total area of approximately 431 km2.  Existing exploration targets include structurally controlled Au and Cu-Au, magmatic NiS and base metals mineralisation.

The region hosts Sandfire Resource’s DeGrussa Deposit (550,000 tonnes contained copper metal) and Thaduna Copper project (100,000 tonnes contained copper metal).  Riedel’s tenements are located about 50km to the north east of the DeGrussa copper mine and cover an entire basement high/greenstone belt and extensions to the Jenkin Fault, both of which are considered key elements in exploration targeting for DeGrussa-type Cu-Au deposits.
