PROJECT - Anglo Saxon

PROJECT

Anglo Saxon

Overview: The most advanced of Hawthorn Resources gold prospects is Anglo Saxon, which is 140 kilometres north-east of Kalgoorlie. The project has 23 KOZs (0.9 tonnes of gold) in an Indicated status, within a 140 KOZs (3.9 tonnes) resource – based on over 400 drill holes. Previous mining by open pit produced about 45 KOZs (1.5 tonnes).

PROJECT - Deep South

PROJECT

Deep South

Overview: The project area lies directly along strike to the south of Deep South Mine, approximately 170 kilometres to the north-east of Kalgoorlie in Western Australia. Hawthorn holds tenements in this area in Joint Venture, with Alacer Gold.

PROJECTS - Mount Bevan

PROJECTS

Mount Bevan

Overview: The Mount Bevan Project comprising Exploration Licences 29/510 and 29/713 is located approximately 100 kilometres west of Leonora in the central Yilgarn region of Western Australia.

PROJECTS - Edjudina

PROJECTS

Edjudina

Overview: This project is located 145 kilometres north-east of Kalgoorlie and is hosted by a series of gold mineralisation of strike parallel quartz veins. Three major, distinct and separate quartz vein sets host most of the known gold mineralisation in the project area.

MOUNT BEVAN IRON ORE PROJECT

(Hawthorn 40%, Legacy 60%)

The Mount Bevan Project comprising Exploration Licences 29/510 and 29/713 is located approximately 100 kilometres west of Leonora in the central Yilgarn region of Western Australia.

UPDATE: November 1 2013

DSO HEMATITE TO COMMENCE AT MT BEVAN - click her for full announcement

The tenement covers a sequence of Banded Iron Formation (BIF) units, sediments and lavas that dip at 20 – 50% towards the north-east. Three substantial BIF horizons have been identified within the tenement to date that extend in a north-northwest orientation throughout the entire length of the tenement; a strike distance of more than 25 kilometres.

A Joint Venture Agreement covering the Mount Bevan Project area exists with ASX-listed Legacy Iron Ore Limited (“Legacy”).  Legacy manages exploration on the tenements on behalf of the Joint Venture, while Hawthorn retains the important and valuable rights to market, or enter into offtake agreements for, 40% of production from Mt Bevan. In addition, under the auspices of the Joint Venture Technical Steering Committee, Hawthorn holds an equal vote in exploration and development programs proposed for the project area.

The Joint Venture has completed initial drilling on the main Mt Bevan Magnetite horizon with remarkably consistent intersections of massive magnetite intersected on each of the section of holes drilled over 10.0 kilometres of strike.

Following this drilling an Inferred Resource was calculated by SRK Consulting of  

  • 1.59 Billion tonnes of magnetite ore @ 30.2 % Fe

 The magnetite ore body produces an excellent concentrate with the following characteristics

  • 44.6% Weight Recovery with 69.8 % Fe Concentrate Grade, at a relatively coarse P80 grind size of 45-50 microns

A further drilling program designed to upgrade a 2.0 kilometre segment of the magnetite orebody to an Indicated Resource category was completed during 2012.

Legacy IronOre has proposed a program of exploration to Hawthorn for the remainder of calendar year 2013, that will complete previously agreed programs including an updated Mt Bevan Resource Estimate and drilling testing of the known haematite mineralisation at Mt Mason North. Greenfields exploration for haematite and magnetite is also proposed for the Mt Alexander area.

Hawthorn is delighted that the joint venture has re-committed to completing haematite exploration in the Mt Mason North area. Exploration by Hawthorn during 2008 & 2009 demonstrated that the Mt Mason haematite resource of Jupiter Mines Limited (“Jupiter”) extends into Hawthorn’s Mt Bevan tenement E29/510, with results from the Hawthorn side of the tenement boundary including:

  • 40 metres @ 61.7 % Fe from 48 metres and
  • 34 metres @ 57.6 % Fe from 59 metres to EOH

Drill results reported by Jupiter indicated that thick intercepts of DSO haematite were also reported on their tenement in close proximity (within 15 metres) to the shared tenement boundary.

Jupiter has announced Measured and Indicated Resource of their portion of the shared haematite body of 5.9Mt @ 60.1% Fe.

The lodgement of a final Mining Approval by Jupiter to the West Australian Mines Department for the Mount Mason orebody is reported to be occurring in 2013.
