Application of a Technology Driven Approach to Defining Targets for Cu-Co Deposits Associated within the Neoproterozoic Tapley Hill Formation, South Australia (2018)$110,000
The Tapley Hill Formation in South Australia has potential for sediment-hosted copper-cobalt ore bodies similar to those in the Central African Copper Belt. Although major worldclass deposits have not yet been discovered, there are moderate-grade deposits at Myall Creek, Mt Gunson, and Emmie Bluff that indicate significant Cu-Co hydrothermal systems were active during the Neoproterozoic in the Stuart Shelf region. Here we propose a 6 month project to inspect and sample previous drilling of the Tapley Hill Formation and associated carbonaceous shales and red beds across the Stuart Shelf and Adelaide Fold Belt.
