Sentinel Resources’ guiding principles are based on acquiring strategic exploration properties in world-class mining jurisdictions with a rich history in mining, low-cost of entry or acquisition, and easy access to infrastructure to minimize capital and operational costs in explorational periods.
New South Whales Gold Project
Sentinel has exploration licenses for Hill End South, Golden Bar, Toolom South, Toolom North, Stanleys, Peel South and Star of Hope.
Highlights of the Gold Projects:
Hill End South
This concession, covering an area of 84 km², is located within the highly prospective Hill End Trough and lies along the southern strike extension of the Hill End anticline and fault which host the highly productive orogenic lode style Hill End gold trend to the north.
The southern extension of the Hill End anticline has been less intensively explored than the northern part and provides an opportunity to discover unexposed saddle reef-style mineralization similar to that at Hill End. In addition, a substantial outcropping quartz lode has been reported but no gold assays are available. This will be an early focus of fieldwork.
This concession covers an area of 198 km2 and is located in the eastern part of the New England orogen covering the majority of the historic Orara-Coramba gold field. There are at least 50 historic underground mines and prospects — many noted for high gold grades.
Hill End South Property
Forty-seven of the mines and occurrences in the New South Wales Government database are listed as structurally controlled, low sulphide hydrothermal-metamorphic vein-type deposits. Historic production records cite grades of up to 184 g/t Au. Occurrences are clustered along two east-west trending mineralized corridors with a cumulative strike length of over 40 km.
Of special interest are the historic workings at Bobo and Black Bull where wide and potentially laterally extensive zones of mineralization are reported, together with high gold grades.
Toolom South is located in the historic Toolom goldfield. It covers an area of 165.5 km2 and includes over 60 historic gold mines and high-grade gold showings. There are also potentially significant alluvial gold deposits.
Three groups of historic workings at Bucklands Reef, Reliance Mine and Rileys Lode with reported grades up to 104 g/t Au have been selected for early attention. At Bucklands Reef historic workings are reported to extend for 400 metres and these potentially provide a drill target following confirmatory field inspection.
