The coarse grained nature of the samples and relatively easy upgrading indicate that ore derived from these deposits will likely be very viable - depending on the cost of transport and providing infrastructure to site.
Three samples were tested - Sample A representing a coarse grained ore type, Sample B is a finer grained ore type - the precise ore split of these two types is currently being investigated.
Drilling has outlined a steeply dipping zone of mineralisation with coarse grained chalcopyrite, associated with magnetite.
Granite exposed at Nagar Parkar is reddish pink, partly altered, leucocratic and medium to coarse grained. The rock comprises K-feldspar (microperthite, microcline), plagioclase (minor), quartz, biotite, aegirine-augite, riebeckite, titanite, apatite, zircon, fluorite, epidote, calcite, sericite, kaolin and muscovite and limonite.
Preliminary work indicates the magnetic highs correspond to a coarse grained banded iron formation that has in places been locally enriched to greater than 65% Fe.
Among the three, the massive coarse grained variety yields the highest strength values most probably because of (i) greater variation in its grain size, (ii) lower abundance and non-alignment of micaceous minerals, and (iii) lower values of water absorption and porosity.
The samples used for the preliminary testwork were taken from four discontinuous chip sampling traverses mostly taken across the strike of the outcropping coarse grained, recrystallised Jubuk banded iron formation.
