Recent PGN success

  • During 2014-2015 PGN Geoscience in collaboration with the Northern Territory Geological Survey undertook "reconnaissance and structural mapping along with new drill core logging at the Home of Bullion deposit" which has helped to constrain the origins and timing of mineralisation in the Aileron Province. 

  • PGN Geoscience provided Kidman Resources provided a regional geophysical interpretation and structural field mapping in the Cobar Basin, New South Wales. “Regional geophysical interpretation was undertaken by PGN Geosciences in the last quarter of 2014 to provide an architectural framework for the Rast Trough and a regional context for known mineralisation at Brown’s Reef. An integrated approach was taken utilising aeromagnetic, Bouguer gravity, seismic and outcrop data sources as well as pre-existing published maps and interpretations. A five day field visit by PGN staff consisted of validation of pre-existing Government and Company maps, with a focus on capturing additional structural data from the limited available outcrop. Drill core from Brown’s Reef was also examined and structural measurements taken for integration into the framework model".

  • In 2014 PGN Geoscience provided the Northern Territory Geological Survey with a a gravity and magnetic interpretation map of the Greater McArthur Basin including a fault architecture map and comparison with the Mount Isa terrane. These include the identification of large scale structures such as the fault system below the Beetaloo basin. PGN Geoscience also constructed a 3D model of preliminary basement architecture of the Greater McArthur Basin from gravity inversions.

  • PGN Geoscience delivered an interpretation map from magnetic and radiometric data to Pacifico Minerals for the Tarso region of Colombia to assist with exploration targeting for Porphyry Cu mineralisation.In 2013, results of a helicopter borne magnetic and radiometric survey over the Tarso licence were interpreted by PGN Geosciences, a Melbourne-based consultancy, with detailed analysis of the relevant data identifying seven target regions”.

  • PGN Geoscience provided Pacifico Minerals a geophysical re-interpretation of the Batten Trough region of the McArthur Basin, Northern Territory. PGN Geoscience, a Melbourne-based consultancy, have completed a re-interpretation of geophysical data (mainly airborne magnetics) of selected parts of the project area with the aim of identifying prospects for future drill testing, for Mn and Cu. Their study focused on the Bing Bong area, centred on EL24401, and a group of tenements occupying the central and southern region of the main tenement block straddling the Tawallah Fault. This study has greatly enhanced our understanding of the structural elements of the region and their relationship to basin formation and fluid flow, and the latter’s influence on alteration and potential concentration of economic manganese and copper mineralisation. Preliminary maps showing the structural interpretation over a range of images and mapped geology have been prepared and areas recommended for follow-up investigation, identified”.

  • During 2013-2014 PGN Geoscience assisted Gold Road Resources in structural targeting for Au mineralisation in the Yamarna Belt, Western Australia which lead to the discovery of the ~6MOz Gruyere Au Resource.

  • PGN Geoscience provided Golden Cross Resources with exploration targets for IOCG mineralisatio from geophysical interpretation modelling. “ In 2011 Golden Cross reviewed geophysical data to identify six targets with similar characteristics to known IOCG prospects and deposits elsewhere in the Gawler Craton as shown in Figure 1. These were reported to the ASX on 29 August, 2011. A further fourteen targets have since been identified in 2012 from images prepared by Melbourne-based consultants, PGN Geoscience”.

  • PGN Geoscience re-processed geophysical datasets and provided 3D inversion modelling for targeting of Cu mineralisation in Zambia for Blackthorn Resources.PGN Geoscience has reprocessed the FALCON™ data-set by incorporating all elements from previous exploration phases. A revised 3D inverted geophysical model was produced to plan the orientation of ‘infill’ and ‘step-out’ holes at Kitumba. The 3D modelling has identified additional high priority targets outside of the main Kitumba drilling area. This work included defining a high priority target in the Mutoya area, situated approximately 6km northwest from Kitumba. The target site has not been previously drill tested and the geophysical anomaly shows a highly ranked target”.
