BOONOO BOONOO PROJECT - SPECIMEN GULLY/STAR OF HOPE
Mining (Underground - including longwall) New project at 20 km northeast of, Tenterfield, NSW 2372. This type is Resource - Silver/Gold with Private ownership. Boonoo Boonoo is near the road which accesses Malachites Rivertree project. Previous sampling by the Company of dumps at old working in the Boonoo Boonoo area had shown that many were anomalous in gold and silver. As previously reported, the best result from drilling was obtained for one of the holes drilled at the Star of Hope (formerly called Browns) Lode, with a 1m intercept of 6.25 g/t gold and 285 g/t gold. Other intercepts obtained were generally of low tenor, although the intercepts in the Demonstration and Golden Crown Lodes show some promise. The more intensively worked central part of the Specimen Gully lode was not accessible for the recent program, as some track construction could be required. Click for more details...

HILLVIEW VERMICULITE PROJECT - RESOURCE
Mining (Underground - including longwall) project In The Lachlan Council Area of Private ownership.

The test work was very successful and showed that recoveries of approximately 50% of the vermiculite could be expected across most of the size ranges. These results are seen as a major step forward for the project and studies are underway to determine the economics of developing a small 5,000 to 10,000 tpa plant on the Hillview site.

ROCKVALE PROJECT
30 km north east of, Armidale, NSW 2350 Has Rockvale Project currently at Exploration, Drilling, Survey & Assessment stage. A moderate sized area of multiple silver-gold-arsenic mineralisation. The principal workings within the licence are the Tulloch and Ruby mines, where narrow, high grade silver lodes in granite have been mined on a relatively small-scale. The Ruby line of lode is spatially associated with a poorly outcropping aplite dyke and is traceable in a northeasterly direction approx. 650 metres. It appears to comprise two sub-vertically dipping silver-rich lodes, the more westerly of which has been worked to a verticle depth of approx. 120 metres. A previous diamond drill hole intersection of this lode averaged 687.5oz/ton silver over a drill width of 1.42 metres. The more or less adjoining easterly lode averaged 40.2oz/ton silver over 2.66 metres. Eight other hole drilled either encountered old working or lower (not quantified) silver values. The results of an I.P. survey indicate extension of sulphide mineralisation (within which other rich shoots might be developed) to the immediate northeast of the main workings. Gold-silver mineralisation has been worked on a small-scale at several localities adjoining the Wollomombi River, about 2km along trend from Ruby. At Silver Point multiple quartz-silver/gold veining is developed in an aplite pipe; the nearjy Union Jack, Little Nell and Little Beauty Mines comprise gold-rich quartz veins, but little is known of their potential.
