Figure 1: Map Location of Cauldron Projects

BENNET WELL (YANREY REGION)

The mineralisation at Bennet Well is a shallow accumulation of uranium hosted in unconsolidated sands (less than 100 m depth) in Cretaceous sedimentary units of the North Carnarvon Basin.

The Bennet Well deposit is comprised of four spatially separate deposits; namely Bennet Well East, Bennet Well Central, Bennet Well South and Bennet Well Channel.

Further field work at Bennet Well is on hold until clarity on Western Australian uranium exploration policy is received from the Minister of Mines and Petroleum.

BENNET WELL MINERAL RESOURCE

A Mineral Resource (JORC 2012) for the mineralisation at Bennet Well was completed by Ravensgate Mining Industry Consultants following new drilling completed during the reporting period ending 2016. The information on this Mineral Resource was fully reported in ASX announcement dated 17 December 2015, including geological maps and cross sections, supporting and explanatory statements and metadata as required under the reporting standards of JORC2012. No work on the Mineral Resource has been completed since, and therefore remains unchanged for the current reporting period.

The mineralisation at Bennet Well is a shallow accumulation of uranium hosted in unconsolidated sands close to surface (less than 100 m downhole depth) in Cretaceous sedimentary units of the Ashburton Embayment. The Bennet Well deposit is comprised of four spatially separate deposits; namely Bennet Well East, Bennet Well Central, Bennet Well South and Bennet Well Channel.

The Mineral Resource (JORC 2012) estimate is:

  • Inferred Resource: 16.9 Mt at 335 ppm eU3O8 for total contained uranium-oxide of 12.5 Mlb (5,670 t) at 150 ppm cut-off;

  • Indicated Resource: 21.9 Mt at 375 ppm eU3O8 for total contained uranium-oxide of 18.1 Mlb (8,230 t) at 150 ppm cut-off;

  • total combined Mineral Resource: 38.9 Mt at 360 ppm eU3O8, for total contained uranium-oxide of 30.9 Mlb (13,990 t) at 150 ppm cut-off.

PROJECT GENERATION

As a direct result of the current policy on uranium mining in Western Australia, field operations at the Yanrey Project have been inactive. There has been considerable effort seeking advanced exploration projects in commodities other than uranium, to diversify the company's project portfolio. Projects reviewed are in Australia; Africa (copper and uranium in Namibia, copper in Democratic Republic of Congo, copper-cobalt in Namibia); PNG (nickel, copper and gold); Utah, USA (uranium and vanadium) and Queensland (copper and gold).

Cauldron is seeking high value advanced exploration projects capable of rapid improvement in value because of the specific quality of the project. This improvement in value will be realised with judicious exploration activity aimed at moving the project towards commencing mining operations.

Project generation is advancing well, with many reviews derived from many leads established through a network built from a near permanent presence in the continent. Given the quantity and type of projects available, it is predicted that a suitable project for Cauldron will be sourced soon.
