Triumph

Triumph is centred around the historical Norton gold field from which ~20,000 oz of gold was extracted between 1879-1941.

The project is located 50km south of the mining hub of Gladstone and comprises two exploration permits covering 138km2. Triumph is located within the Wandilla Province of the New England Orogen.

Nearby large gold deposits include Mt Rawdon (2.8 Moz Au), Mt Morgan (8 Moz Au and 0.4 Mt Cu) and Cracow (2 Moz Au). Triumph is a 15km² intrusion related gold system which has the potential to host both discrete high-grade vein deposits and large-scale, shear hosted gold deposits.

Best results from the project include;

  • Super Hans 16m @ 5.48 g/t Au (34m, 21SHRC002)
  • Big Hans 17m @ 4.30 g/t Au (1m, TDH118)
  • New Constitution 10m @ 26.86 g/t Au (51m, TDH056)
  • South Constitution 6m @ 13.11 g/t AU (98m, 21NCRC)

The project geology is dominated by the Norton Tonalite, a late Permian aged intrusion that has intruded through the Carboniferous sediments of the Wandilla Formation. The tonalite has been displaced by the late-stage, north-west oriented Norton Fault. Approximately 1.8 km of apparent sinistral, strike-slip displacement along the Norton Fault appears to have occurred post-mineralisation. The implications of this inferred late-stage deformation are significant when determining the likelihood of offset lode positions. An example of this that the mineralisation identified at Super Hans is interpreted to be the offset extension of the Bald Hill mineralisation. Further interpretation of the magnetics indicates that the Bald Hill system extends for approximately 3 km on the east of the Norton Fault and the Super Hans system extends for a further 3 km to the west of the fault. The interpretation is supported by regular gold intersections greater than 1 g/t Au in wide spaced drilling.
