In addition to Nico Young, Jervois has three exploration areas – Arunta West, Area 1 and the extensive North Queensland Tin Tenements.
All these have considerable technical merit, however consistent with the revised strategy Jervois will be refocusing its efforts toward core cobalt-nickel properties.
ARUNTA WEST PROJECT
The Arunta West project consists of three exploration licences covering 345 sq km about 600km west-northwest of Alice Springs in the Gibson Desert near the WA/NT border. Jervois entered a joint venture agreement with Australian Mines Limited (ASX: AUZ) on the Arunta West Project in 2016, AUZ is the operator and manager of the project.
NORTH QUEENSLAND TIN TENEMENTS
Jervois’ Carbonate Creek and Khartoum tenements have a potential Exploration Target of more than 100Mt of 0.25% tin.
Area 1 is an early-stage general exploration area. The area is prospective for platinum and base metal targets especially in the metamorphic contact area. It is an area of historic gold and tin workings in quartz veins related to the Girilambone Group.
