The Nanadie Well Copper-Gold Project partially overlies the Barrambie Greenstone Belt which consists of a 1-4km wide sequence of strongly sheared chlorite-quartz-muscovite schists, amphibolites, BIF’s and ultramafics. Much of the tenement is covered by aeolian sand, sheetwash and calcrete.
Empire’s Nanadie Well Copper-Gold Project lies immediately along strike from Cyprium Metals Limited (ASX:CYM) Nanadie Well Copper Project. Cyprium’s Nanadie Well Copper Project has a JORC 2004 Inferred Resource of 36.07Mt @ 0.42% Cu & 0.06g/t Au containing 151,506 tonnes of copper and 74,233 oz of gold (refer to ASX:CYM “Nanadie Well Copper Project Acquisition” 14 July 2020).
The sequence hosting the Nanadie Well deposit is interpreted to continue north into Empire’s tenure. A regional shear, informally known as the Nanadie Well Regional Shear traverses the project from north to south. Several geochemical and geophysical anomalies have been identified along the Nanadie Well Regional Shear that warrant further investigation.
