Location and Geology

The Wowo Gap project is located at the Southeastern end of the Papuan Ultramafic Belt, a complex of peridotite, pyroxenite and gabbro, which form the prominent east-west trending Didana Range, approximately 160km east of Port Moresby.

The project hosts 125 Million tonnes @ 1.06 per cent Ni and 0.07 per cent Co Indicated Resource Estimate (JORC 2004) within the laterite profile based on drilling along the 12-kilometre strike length.

The nickel mineralisation is associated with a laterite weathering profile developed over the underlying ultramafic geology, which has resulted in the enrichment of nickel, cobalt, iron, chromium, magnesium and magnesite.

A complete lateritic profile is preserved, with partial truncation associated with recent drainage systems. The depth of lateritic weathering varies according to rock type and the degree of structural brecciation. The lateritic profile is typically 10 to 15 metres thick, occasionally more than 20 metres.
