Mineral Deposit Type Target(s)
- Large Scale VMS type Deposits
The Warroo Project is contiguous to the east of Rumble’s Braeside Project 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 Prospects
- 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%

Potential New VMS Province
The host lithology to the copper mineralisation at Camel Hump has similar characteristics to the Warroo Hill Member lithologies.
The Camel Hump and Warroo Hill Member lithologies lie within the same corridor with respect to strike and structure.
