Session 3

Dr Chris Giles

Technical Director - Havilah Resources Limited

Mutooroo Cobalt: A Major New Cobalt District in Northeastern South Australia

Bio

Dr Chris Giles is an experienced exploration geologist having worked on exploration teams that have been directly responsible for the discovery of several operating gold mines in various parts of the world, including Indonesia, East Africa and Australia. He was jointly responsible for the formation of Havilah and the development and execution of the Company’s exploration and corporate strategy. Dr Giles is a resident of Adelaide and a Member of the Australian Institute of Geoscientists.

Abstract

Mutooroo is a copper-cobalt-gold  bearing massive sulphide lode deposit, with an 8,400 tonne cobalt JORC resource. Havilah's open file research and follow up field sampling and mapping programs over its extensive surrounding tenement holding has identified many highly promising cobalt prospects and walk up drill targets, mostly related to ironstone gossans that reflect underlying sulphide mineralisation. It is now evident that Mutooroo forms part of a widespread copper-cobalt-gold sulphide mineralised district, with exceptional cobalt discovery potential.

Abstract

 

Leon Faulkner

Managing Director - Environmental Copper Recovery SA Pty Ltd

The potential of InSitu Recovery for copper, gold and other metals, the  Kapunda Project as a possible example.

Bio

Leon is a geologist with 30 years professional work experience in exploration and mine development projects that covers most states of Australia. He spent a number of years working with an ISR mining operation at Honeymoon and since that went into care and maintenance in 2014, has been involved in looking at opportunities that would suit InSitu recovery operations.

He has worked with an ASX 200 gold company on identifying and characterising ISR potential of one of their stranded gold assets and most recently is heading up the Environmental Copper Recovery team and their Kapunda project. This project was awarded a CRC-P grant in August this year and research is currently being undertaken on a number of different areas.

Abstract

Research into insitu recovery has progressed significantly in the last 3-5 years in a number of areas including, lixiviant technology, mapping fluid distribution, fluid barrier technologies and social license. These advances mean that ISR as a technique can now be applied to a far wider range of deposits than previously thought, opening up a potentially significant number of previously stranded assets to profitable, low impact recovery. A selection of these advances are being applied at the Kapunda project to see if the remaining Kapunda copper deposit could be profitably recovered with a low impact form of mining.
