Gold Mountain Stop Press

  • 2004 exploration results confirm that the Jinxi-Yelmand prospects sit in a large gold mineralised system within a 3.5km diameter caldera

  • Gold mineralisation model is analogous in style to Barrick Mines’ Peruvian Alto Chicama gold project (7.2m oz)

  • These systems, including the Jinxi-Yelmand target, are typically:

    • extensive near surface blankets of disseminated gold mineralisation in breccias

    • underlying the blankets are high grade feeder structures (like Arxi Gold Mine - 3.8 million oz reserve only 10km SE of Jinxi)

  • All drill holes assayed to date from 2004 programme have gold mineralisation

  • Assays from the remaining 10 holes and 473 surface samples awaited - two holes from Jinxi have intersected very wide breccia zones


Local operating expertise l.jpg

For the past several years Grant has held senior positions with Rio Tinto Exploration (Brazil and China)

Prior to his role in Brazil, Grant was Country Manager and Chief Representative for Rio Tinto Mining and Exploration (China) in Beijing from 1997 to 2000. In China Grant managed a team of Chinese geologists exploring for gold, copper, coal and base metal mineralization in various geological terrains

Grant successfully negotiated Rio Tinto Mining and Exploration’s first Project Establishment in China as well as negotiating the first exploration licenses in China (Xinjiang province)

Prior to China, Grant was Manager Exploration for Hamersley Iron Resources Task Force

Diamond drilling at the Jinxi Prospect in July 2004 showing three rigs on the 10025N line and two rigs to the north on lines 10050N and 10100N. Looking north

  • Project history

  • Outstanding location

  • Efficient operating environment

  • 2004 Programme highlights

  • Discovery of a substantial gold system

  • New project pipeline


Project history l.jpg
Project History with Rio Tinto Exploration (Brazil and China)

  • Chinese exploration and research parties discovered Jinxi, Yelmand and the Arxi gold mine (3.8m oz reserve) in Carboniferous Tulasi Basin in the mid 1990’s

  • WMC began exploring the Tulasi Basin in 1996 and drilled 8 diamond core holes (1,741m) at Jinxi-Yelmand, 7 gold mineralised

  • WMC withdrew 2001, concluding Jinxi-Yelmand target prospective for 80Mt at >1.0g/t Au

  • Chinese parties continued exploration by developing adits at Yelmand and Jinxi and conducted small scale mining at Yelmand and Jinxi

  • Mineral Securities Limited took an interest in the property in late 2002, and Xinjiang Gold Mountain Company Limited (“XGM”) joint venture company was formed in 2003

  • TGF acquired its interest in 2003, and XGM began a limited test drilling programme late in 2003 (1,297m)

Urumqi

Yining (40km)

  • Resource rich Xinjiang Province in NW China

  • Established infrastructure including international airport and hotels, national highways and rail links

  • Ready road access to project areas located in undulating grasslands at 1,200m to 2,000m

  • On site water supply and power from the grid nearby

  • Adjacent operating gold mine (3.8m oz Au reserve)

(Yining: >300,000 population)

2004 project highlights l.jpg
2004 Project Highlights with Rio Tinto Exploration (Brazil and China)

  • Large near surface disseminated blanket with potential for 80Mt @ >1.0g/t Au at Jinxi-Yelmand

  • Analogous to major discoveries in South America and USA – Yanacocha (34Moz), Pierina (8Moz), Alto Chicama (7Moz), and Hollister (3.8Moz)

  • Potential for high grade feeder structures below the blanket to be targeted in possible veins, intrusion stockworks and siliceous breccia pipes

  • Project status:

    • major drilling programme completed in 2004 (5,756m) has defined the first two targets for resource drill-out

    • pipeline of regional targets similar to Jinxi-Yelmand

    • further tenement acquisitions underway

  • Kezele – 1-2km south of Jinxi-Yelmand within another caldera system, with surface samples to 2.5g/t Au

  • Chart – new zone located in the Jinshan NW target, with coincident IP anomaly

  • Further prospects under negotiation


Summary l.jpg
