Warroo Cu-Zn-Pb-Ag-Au-U-Pt Project, East Pilbara 

Exploration target(s):

  • The Warroo Hill Member Synform is considered prospective for VMS, stratiform replacement and intrusive related Cu-Zn-Pb-Ag-Au deposits.
  • The Tarcunyah Unconformity is considered prospective for Au-U-Pt (unconformity related type) deposits.

The Warroo Project is contiguous to the east of Rumble’s Braeside -Barramine Zn-Pb-Ag (Cu Au V) Projects and lies some 160km to the east of Marble Bar in the East Pilbara region of Western Australia. The project comprises of three exploration licence applications (ELA45/5365, ELA45/5366 and ELA45/5367) for a total area of 1082 km². The tenure is 100% owned by Rumble.

The Project is located in the highly sought-after Fortescue/Paterson Province region, which has attracted renewed interest following significant recent discoveries by Rio Tinto Limited at the large Winu copper-gold project and the Newcrest Mining – Greatland Gold joint venture at the exciting Havieron gold-copper project.

Airborne magnetics (completed by Rumble) and subsequent interpretation combined with open file review has highlighted multiple, highly prospective targets along the main Fortescue Group/Paterson Province contact.

Warroo Hill Member Synform Target

  • Copper and zinc anomalism is associated with bimodal (felsic to mafic) volcanics and associated volcaniclastics/sediments of the Warroo Hill Member Synform.
  • Over 18km of highly prospective strike under shallow sand cover has been delineated.
    • Historic exploration outlined extensive copper and zinc anomalism from shallow broad spaced RAB drilling associated with a large gravity feature.
    • Grab sampling returned significant mineralisation at the Warroo Prospect:
      • Cu assays include – 3.43%, 2.04% and 1.51%
      • Zn assays include – 26%, 23.5% and 19.1%

The Warroo Hill Member Synform is considered prospective for VMS, stratiform replacement and intrusive related Cu-Zn-Pb-Ag-Au deposits.

Tarcunyah Unconformity Target

A regional scale unconformity overlies the eastern margin of the Fortescue Group.

  • The unconformity is a major hiatus (Neoproterozoic over Late Archaean).
  • Over 60km of strike potential identified under shallow sand cover.
  • No previous exploration.
  • Above unconformity lies oxidised quartz rich sandstone. Below unconformity lies reduced shales and carbonates of the Warroo Hill member along with highly radiogenic feldspar rich rocks including granites, syenogranite and felsic volcanics.
  • Fault bounded Tarcunyah sandstone outlier identified (no previous exploration).

The Tarcunyah Unconformity is considered prospective for Au-U-Pt (unconformity related type) deposits.

Next Steps – JV Potential

In line with is strategy, Rumble will refine target generation prior to completing exploration in its own right and also consider suitable joint venture opportunities and partners.

Rumble has recently secured two significant joint ventures in Tier 1 jurisdictions, one with Independence Group (ASX: IGO) on Rumble’s Fraser Range Project and another with AIC Mines (ASX: A1M) on Rumble’s Lamil Project in the Paterson Province.
