Silver Spoon – Orogenic Gold Project (EL6951), Victoria (Petratherm 100%)

The Silver Spoon project is located approximately 30km east of Bendigo, on highly prospective ground positioned between the operating Fosterville and Costerfield Gold Mines.

The area contains several historic gold and other mineral prospects in areas of outcrop.

Younger cover sediment however masks much of the prospective host rock and these regions have only been very lightly explored.

In recent years the utilisation of modern detailed gravity surveying to locate prospective faults under shallow cover sediment has been paramount in identifying potential gold bearing zones for later drill testing. ASX listed Catalyst Metals’ has demonstrated the success of this methodology with the both the Four Eagles and Tandarra Prospect gold discoveries under shallow cover sediment north of Bendigo (reference Catalyst ASX: CYL, 08/08/2018 ASX release).
