SPEAKER: DR RUSSELL FOUNTAIN, EXPLORATION MANAGER, NORD RESOURCES (PACIFIC) PTY LTD
TOPIC: THE GIRILAMBONE COPPER PROJECT
The Girilambone copper prospect north of Nyngan in New South wales is currently the subject of a mining feasibility study by Nord Resources (Pacific) Pty Ltd.
The original Girilambone Mine worked until 1917 produced about 80,000 tonnes of 2-5% Cu ore. Exploration by Utah in 1968-1973 resulted in an indicated resource of about 3 million tonnes at 2% copper. Recent drilling by Nord has indicated a substantial increase in this resource, attributed mainly to improved sampling techniques to those used by Utah.
