West Wits Mining (WWI) has identified three distinct targets at the Mt Cecelia Project in Western Australia.

These three targets include gold, manganese, and polymetallic VMS (volcanogenic massive sulphides).

These new target areas have provided West Wits with significant areas for follow-up drilling to explore for gold, manganese, and polymetallic VMS.

PGN Geoscience was hired by West Wits to carry out a detailed study to help develop new exploration models and provide context for known and existing mineralisation areas.

This study gave West Wits and improved geological map of the project and a better understanding of future exploration programs.

The new map presents substantially more complex geology than the one that is currently known.

Gold

The central-west area of Mt Cecelia is determined to be highly prospective for orogenic banded-iron formation (BIF) hosted gold.

The primary analysis of the target suggests that a folded BIF sequence is contrasted by a series of steep structures.

Airborne magnetics suggests a series of de-magnetised zones in the BIF which are prospective for gold mineralisation systems.

VMS

According to reports from Geological Survey Western Australia, the Kylena and Jerrinah Formations at Mt Cecelia are prospective for VMS deposits and it occurs in a significant volume at both.

This presents a significant opportunity for exploration of West Wits in the near future.

Manganese

Manganese mineralisation at Mt Cecelia is situated within the VMS and BIF gold mineralisation.

It is believed to be hosted within form-surface breccia units.

“The prospectivity of the Mt Cecelia Project is again highlighted by the newly completed desktop work as well as Rio Tinto’s exploration activity at its adjoining tenements,” Managing Director Jac van Heerden commented.

“The WWI Board is looking forward to taking the next exploration steps in this world-class mining region,” he said.

Subject to COVID-19 restrictions, West Wits next steps include a field exploration and mapping campaign to define structural controls on these target areas.

The company will then complete 3D geophysical-geological models across the Kylena and Jerrinah Formations for VMS systems.

West Wits has ended the day 9.09 per cent in the green with shares trading for 1.2 cents each in a $10.31 million market cap.
