Sherlock Bay Extended Base Metal Project
The Sherlock Bay Extended project is composed of two Exploration Licences (E47/1769 and E47/1770), which surround the main Sherlock Bay nickel deposit (wholly owned by Australasian Resources Ltd - ‘ARH’). The project is located between Roebourne and Whim Creek in the Western Pilbara and is prospective for nickel, copper, silver and gold mineralisation. Known deposits within the region include; Sherlock Bay (Ni,Cu), Balla Balla (Fe,Ti,V & P), plus the Salt Creek, Balla Balla and Whim Creek base metals deposits (Cu,Zn,Pb).
The project is a joint venture between ARH (70% interest) and Metals (30% interest). ARH are the managers of the project, with Metals being ‘free-carried’ through to the completion of a bankable feasibility study and the decision to commence commercial mining.
