A significant uranium target
- High grade surface rock chip samples returned Uranium values up to 0.12% Uranium
- Four of the samples returned over 400ppm uranium.
- Uranium associated with elevated base metals (Cu, Zn, Ag & PGE).
- Mapped for at least 35km of strike
- Immediate priority regional target
Limited historic exploration over the Edmund Projects also includes 17 surface rock chip samples by Geopeko in the early 1980’s, which returned elevated Uranium values up to 0.12% U, and four (4) of the samples returning over 400ppm uranium. The rockchips are from locations mapped as Glenn Ross Shale, a member of the Kiangi Creek Formation. This formation has mapped base metal occurrences (Cu-Zn) approximately 20km east from where the rockchips were collected.
The uranium is associated with elevated base metals (Cu, Zn, Ag) as well as elevated phosphorus and vanadium. This may represent a stratabound mineralisation style uranium targets or red-bed style uranium target. The Kiangi Formation is mapped for at least 35km of strike within Bellavista’s tenements representing a very large target. Based on these highly anomalous uranium results, Bellavista has identified this as a priority regional target that warrants further investigation.
