Bauloora (EL8994 and EL9464)
Low Sulphidation Epithermal Au-Ag (Cu-Zn-Pb)
Bauloora is a large and underexplored, low sulphidation epithermal project in the Lachlan Fold Belt, NSW, Australia. The epithermal vein field is mapped to 27km2 and open in all directions.
Across the Project, Legacy Minerals has undertaken a systematic exploration program focusing on mapping, regional targeting, and soil sampling.
Legacy Minerals recently completed a maiden diamond drilling targeting the Mee Mar low-sulphidation epithermal veins with assays pending.
The widespread abundance of adularia within the veins, and the forms of silica vein material and their textures, all indicate that the veins on the Bauloora Project extend from the paleo-water table to the boiling level, and through the Crustiform-Colloform Superzone to the lower levels of the Chalcedonic Superzone (i.e., Buchanan’s Precious Metals Interval). As well as vertical and horizontal zonation of these textural and depositional types, there has likely been a telescoping of various types of mineralisation at particular locations as seen in the localised higher base metal contents to some portions of the veins. The implication is that the veins on the Bauloora Project present an excellent opportunity for the discovery of shallow gold mineralisation.
