BRANDY HILL GOLD & BASE METALS PROJECT - SHAW WELL/PIPELINE BORE
Mining (Underground - including longwall) project for New development. In light of the fact that a substantial Banded Iron Formation (BIF) structure runs across the Company?s tenement holding at Gullewa, the geophysical review outlined above was expanded to evaluate the potential for iron deposits in the area.
