Bottle Creek: 

The Mt Ida project lies approximately 90km North West of Menzies in Western Australia. The Bottle Creek Mining Leases form a key part of the Company’s 360km² Mt Ida Project. The two Mining Leases at Bottle Creek hold independent JORC 2012 Measured, Indicated and Inferred Resources of 5.6Mt @ 1.72g/t Au for 309,000oz Au and 3.78Moz Ag23 .

Bottle Creek was mined by Norgold Ltd, a subsidiary of Rio Tinto, between 1988 and 1989. The operation produced approximately 93,000oz Au from two open pits, VB and Boags, in an 18 month operation. The pits were mined to 50m depth and averaged 3.26g/t Au at the VB pit and 2.65g/t Au at Boags. 

Figure 2: Map showing the Bottle Creek Mining Leases in relation to the rest of the Mt Ida project. 

The ore was processed through a Minproc designed and built CIP plant. The plant was removed by Norgold during extensive mine rehabilitation in the early 1990’s. Significant mining infrastructure still exists at Bottle Creek including tailings storage facilities, fully functioning exploration camp, potable water and communication services.

The Company will continue to focus on expanding its resource base at the Mt Ida and Bottle Creek gold projects with the aim of bringing these assets back into production. The third stage of resource and exploration drilling has commenced at Bottle Creek. Challenge Drilling currently have an RC drill rig onsite and drilling is underway.

ASX Announcement 9 September 2019 

ALT Resources Limited (ASX: ARS, Alt or the Company) is pleased to provide the following exploration update for operations at its Mt Ida and Bottle Creek Gold Projects incorporating the Bottle Creek, Quinn’s and Mt Ida South project areas (Mt Ida or Project), located 90km north-west of Menzies in Western Australia’s Eastern Goldfields.

Alt will re-commence RC drilling at the Tim’s Find and Shepherds Bush project areas on 16th September 2019. The Company has elected to fast track exploration drilling with the Challenge RC rig mobilising to site on the 16th. The Company has decided to bring the RC program forward and complete the next phase of drilling prior to the hotter part of the year and will drill an additional 2500 metres of RC at the Tim’s Find and Shepherds Bush projects over the coming weeks.

The Company recently completed a Helicopter-borne Time-Domain Electromagnetic (HTDEM) survey at the Bottle Creek and Shepherds Bush project areas using the New Resolution Geophysics (NRG) Xcite system (Figure 1). NRG surveyed 284 line kilometres across the two project areas and the data is now being reviewed with interim data indicating the presence of stratigraphic conductors and some positive structural corridors for future exploration drilling.

Figure 1: NRG Heli EM survey underway at Bottle Creek and Shepherds Bush projects

The HTDEM data is being reviewed and final results will be announced to the market on completion. The Company is planning to use the EM data in conjunction with existing magnetic data, soil geochemistry and recent drilling to provide new drill targeting for the Mt Ida and Bottle Creek Gold Projects.

An image of preliminary EM data from a late time channel (Ch 20) is presented in Figure 2 and shows several strike extensive conductor trends with evidence of structural disruption occurring along those trends.

Company recently completed a 5,500 metre RC program at the Mt Ida South and Quinn’s project areas with very encouraging Tim’s Find results having been announced to the market in July 20191 . The results from this RC drill program were very positive with the Company extending know mineralised zones at Tim’s Find outside the existing resource area.

The next phase of RC drilling has been designed to expand the Tim’s Find resource and undertake infill drilling at the Shepherds Bush prospect with the view to deliver new resource upgrades from both project areas in the coming months.

ASX Announcement 26 August 2019 


  • Grades up to 45g/t Au returned in 11 RC holes drilled at Forrest Belle 
  • Peak assay 28.9g/t returned in 3 RC holes drilled at Pianto’s Find 
  • Significant intercepts including: 
    • 17m @ 3.5tg/t Au, including 1m @ 45g/t Au from 33 metres (Forrest Belle) 
    • 14m @ 2.6g/t Au, including 1m @ 28.9g/t Au from 26 metres (Pianto’s Find)

Figure 1: Challenge Drilling RC at Pianto’s Find, Mt Ida Gold Project

Alt Resources Ltd (ASX: ARS, Alt or ‘the Company’) is pleased to provide an exploration update and results from Forest Belle and Pianto’s project areas. Pianto’s and Forrest Belle were the last areas tested by the Company during the recent RC drilling program at Mt Ida with 11 holes drilled at Forrest Belle and three holes drilled at Pianto’s Find.

The Pianto’s Find prospect is of interest to the Company due to similar magnetic response to Bottle Creek, indicating potential for a parallel mineralised corridor. In addition to similarities in the magnetics data, historical RAB drilling at Pianto’s, shown in figures 2, 3 and 4 below, supports gold potential with one of the historic drillholes (MIB232) intercepting shallow low grade gold. With Bottle Creek mineralisation drilled along >8km strike length and contributing strongly to the projects Gold and Silver Resource1 the Pianto’s holes were designed as an intial test of the parallel magnetic lineament.
