Omu Prospect and Initial Drilling Program
The Omu Prospect is one of the main targets associated with the Company's Keveri Project, located approximately 180 km south east of Port Moresby in the Abau District of the Central Province in PNG. The exploration licences straddle a major WNW trending regional structure, the Keveri Fault Zone, which is the southeastern extension of the major structures within the Papuan Mobile Fold Belt. These major structures are important in the emplacement of porphyry and porphyry related copper-gold deposits in PNG. The Company is focusing exploration activities on porphyry-style and porphyry-related Cu-Au mineralization related to mafic to intermediate composition porphyritic intrusive stocks proximal to the Keveri Fault.
