Dingo Creek Project - Manganese
Background and Geology
Shaw River has successfully applied for three new Exploration Licenses (EL's) covering 979km² which are considered prospective for Manganese mineralisation in the Bangemall Basin of WA. The new Dingo Creek Project is located 40kms north-west and along strike from Aurora Mineral's Capricorn East manganese project.
Shaw River's Dingo Creek Project consists of two of the three licence applications over 748 kms² of the western area of the Ullawarra Formation.
Following recent work in the area by other companies, interest in the Ullawarra Formation has increased as a potential new source of manganese.
The Dingo Creek Project covers a large and underexplored area, and our first pass reconnaissance results indicate that we have encouraging manganese geology and mineralization. Also of interest, a high grade bedded iron occurrence returning 58.7%Fe was discovered in Shaw River tenement application E08/2007, which is located approximately 43km NE of the Dingo Creek Project.
Due to the remoteness of this tenement, an access reconnaissance review has first been completed. All pastoral lease holders have been visited and are aware of the planned exploration activities. Base maps have been created showing topography and geology.
