Mt Pleasant (Earning up to 90%)
The Mount Pleasant prospect is a Copper / Gold project that Torian has an option to acquire up to 90%. Its location is immediately south of our Credo project and is approximately 33 kilometres northwest of Kalgoorlie and 8 km southwest of Broad Arrow (Figure 9). The tenement area itself is well served with tracks as a result of previous exploration and pastoral activities. The topography of the area is generally flat with occasional ridges and low hills. Drainage is south towards numerous salt lakes in the area.
Gold mineralisation was intersected at the Mount Pleasant Prospect within a gabbro unit by Coopers Resources NL in the 1980s with results such as 1 metre @ 15.60g/t from 31 metres, 2 metres @ 6.55g/t from 22 metres and 3 metres @ 3.53g/t from 19 metres.
The Mount Pleasant Prospect still has good potential to provide a significant gold resource. Drilling has been restricted to 60 metre deep holes with one drill hole ending in mineralisation (3.89g/t Au). The gabbroic host rock at Golden Buckle contains the nearby Golden Kilometre Deposit which produced 2.45 million tonnes @ 4.2 g/t for 330,000 ounces of gold from 1986 through to 1994.
