News: Adelaide Resources completes biogeochemistry sampling in South Australia

  1. Adelaide Resources (ASX:ADN) has successfully completed the research and development biogeochemistry sampling program on its Eyre Peninsula tenements in South Australia.

    This confirmed that concentrations of gold, silver and some other metals in the leaves of eucalypts above sub-surface mineralisation are at anomalous levels.

    It suggests that biogeochemistry shows promising potential for wider application across the Eyre Peninsula Project.

    The program was designed to determine if analysis of eucalypt mallee leaves could be used to identify areas of known underlying gold mineralisation at the Baggy Green gold prospect on the Eyre Peninsula.

    Research by a CSIRO team led by Dr. Mel Lintern in October 2013 confirmed that some species of eucalypts growing on top of mineral deposits transport gold from significant depths via the root system and precipitate it as tiny particles in the above ground foliage of the tree.

    It is then possible to sample leaf and twig material, determine its gold content, and delineate biogeochemical anomalies that may indicate the presence of buried mineralisation.

    The Eyre Peninsula Gold Project comprises 12 tenements that cover 4415 square kilometres.

    It falls largely in the Central Gawler Gold Province, an arcuate belt lying on the southern and western margins of the extensive Gawler Range Volcanics.

    The Central Gawler Gold Province is host to the Tarcoola and Tunkillia gold deposits, and to numerous other prospects including the company’s wholly owned Baggy Green, White Tank and Barns gold prospects.
