Company's Projects

  • Summary

The Stuart Town project covers a significant historical gold mining districtwith over 80 recorded historic gold workings. The region is enticinglylocated between the Cadia mining operations, operated by Newcrestwhich is Australia’s largest gold mine (Resources of 42M ounces gold and8.7M tonnes copper) and the Boda copper/gold porphyry discovery heldby Alkane – whorecently drilled 502m @ 0.48 g/t gold, 0.2% copper.


  • Geology and Mineralisation

The Stuart Town project is set within the Lachlan Fold Belt, New SouthWales. The mineralisation styles range from lode style to alluvial and deeplead mines. The source and pathways for the extensive goldmineralisation remains unknown however some of the mineralisation ishosted within felsic units such as brecciated rhyolite and indicates thatan underlying felsic intrusive unit may be related to the goldmineralisation. This is encouraging from the perspective of exploring forlarger gold systems and is a primary initial exploration target. A moredetailed description of the geology and mineralisation is detailed in theIndependent Geologist’s Report.


  • Previous Exploration

Gold mining in the Stuart Town project area first commenced in the 1850’sand no records have been kept on the production sourced from the fieldsduring the rush between 1850’s and 1875 but it is considered to besignificant. More than 5t (170,000 ounces) of gold are recorded to havebeen produced between 1875 (when mine records were first kept in NSW)and the early part of the 20th Century.


Subsequent explorers included CRAE (now Rio Tinto Limited) who focusedon large scale and encouraging soil sampling programmes. The workfocused on Cadia-style deposits mostly to the west and south of the mainStuart Town gold workings. Carpentaria Exploration Limited (a subsidiaryof Mount Isa Mines Limited -MIM) also conducted work and commentedthat magnetic and radiometric data suggested a possible underlyingintrusive unit that may be the source of the gold mineralisation. This targethas not been drill tested.


  • Exploration Potential

The property is considered prospective for large scale intrusive gold mineralisation. The existence of a substantial goldfield overlying the exploration targets is considered to enhance this as an exploration target and further encouragement is provided by the felsic host of some of the mapped and previously mined mineralization.

About Stuart Town

The Stuart Town licences include the granted EL 8491 and an ELA 5854. On listing, KAU will have the rights to these licences as a result of acquiring 100% of the capital of Chase. The total area of EL 8491 is 12 graticular units (or about 32.55 km2) and the area of ELA 5854 is 15 graticular units (or about 43.34 km).


  • Location and access

The Stuart Town Project is located around 300 km northwest of Sydney. Access from Sydney is via the Great Western Highway to Orange, a distance of 262 km, and a further 62 km to the north on a sealed road. Access within the Project is via station tracks and minor shire roads.


Stuart Town may also be reached by sealed road from Wellington via sealed roads 35 km south of Wellington to the township, via Burrendong Way. It is serviced by the main western railway, which provides regular service to/from Sydney. The closest regular air service is to and from Orange. There is a well-maintained network of shire and farm roads throughout most of the project area.


  • Aboriginal heritage, Native Title and environment

The Stuart Town Project lies within the Wellington Local Aboriginal Land Council Region. There are currently no Registered Native Title Applications, Determination Outcomes or Indigenous Land Use Agreements in Place over the Stuart Town Project area.


Prior to ground-disturbing exploration, a Right to Negotiate process11 must be followed by the negotiation parties (Title Holder and Native Title Claimants) to ensure exploration is lawfully completed. Claimants have three months to commence the negotiation process with the Title Holder once the negotiation has been signaled.

Proposed Exploration Programs and Expenditure

Snowden (Independent Geologist’s Report provider) considers the Stuart Town Project to represent an exploration project that enjoys relative ease of access and the regional presence of significant infrastructure. Work by historical explorers has identified sufficient indications of mineralisation to warrant further exploration on the premise that the intrusive system is large.


KAU proposes to:

  • Rank all structural, geochemical and geophysical targets in order to prioritise drill targets
  • Drill the highest priority targets from surface to confirm their location, geology and geometry
  • Conduct further geophysical programmes to identify the location of favourable structure and associated indications of mineralisation
  • Collect samples for metallurgical testwork.


Snowden has been advised that KAU has budgeted approximately $2.5 million on direct exploration out of available funds of $4.5 million post expenses to issue. The budget contemplates exploration expenditure at Stuart Town over two years and Snowden considers this to be appropriate to support the strategy described.
