AERIS RESOURCES INITIAL DRILL HOLE AT ANOMALY K INTERSECTS SULPHIDES
Southern Geoscience Consultants would like to congratulate Aeris Resources Limited (ASX: AIS) with their initial success at the Anomaly K prospect (Tritton Project, NSW) with the discovery of well-developed sulphides including chalcopyrite. TAKD001 intersected an 18.8 metre thick sulphide interval from 197.5 metres DH. Sulphide textures varied between disseminations to massive sulphide bands within a chlorite altered turbidite host sequence. Based on visual logging, sulphide minerals are predominately pyrite with lesser amounts of chalcopyrite. Within the sulphide interval a 6.8 metre thick zone of banded massive sulphides is interpreted to be the conductive horizon detected from the various EM surveys.
Anomaly K prospect was first identified following the detection of a potential bedrock conductor from an airborne EM survey in December 2018. A follow-up ground based Moving Loop survey (MLTEM) confirmed the presence of two potential conductive bodies over the prospect.
Drill hole TAKD001 was designed to test the larger of the two bedrock conductors. Down Hole EM (DHEM) survey will commence after the completion of TAKD001 and a follow-up drill hole is then planned.
