Underexplored Pine Creek province
Established Mineralogical Terrain
Contiguous Prospect Areas
The Wild Horse Hill Project comprises two granted exploration licences, EL 30951 and EL 30964, covering 231km2 of the established mineralogical terrain of Pine Creek which has established gold mining operations.
The Wild Horse Hill Project is located c.115km southeast of Darwin and c.18km east of Adelaide River in Northern Territory. The tenements are accessible from Darwin via the Stuart Highway to Adelaide River, then via station tracks to the Mount Keppler yards on Mount Ringwood station. Station tracks provide good access within the tenements.
The geological setting of the Wild Horse Hill Project is in the Pine Creek Orogen, a folded and metamorphosed sequence of Palaeoproterozoic pelitic and psammitic sediments, with interlayered cherty tuff units. These rocks have been intruded by the late-orogenic Palaeoproterozoic granites, causing wide spread contact metamorphism and associated thermal aureole which contains gold mineralisation in the Orogen.
