Project Description

Kiola (ELA4647) consists of 100 units on the southern portion of the Ordovician Molong Volcanic Belt. Much of the area is covered by shallow Quaternary sediments. However, the basement geology is dominated by the Late Ordovician Kenyu Formation. The Kenyu Formation consists of mafic volcaniclastic mudstone, andesitic volcaniclastic sandstone and conglomerate with lesser basalt to andesite volcanics and allochthonous limestone. Silurian-Devonian dacitic to rhyolitic ignimbrites of the Hawkins Volcanics flank the Kenyu Formation on its west and Silurian-Devonian porphyritic granite-granodiorite lies to its east. Prominent northwest-trending faults crosscut the area.

Numerous copper and gold prospects lie in the tenement boundaries. The most well investigated area surrounds the Kiola Cu-Au Skarn which is adjacent to a diorite intrusion. Other skarn, stockwork, massive and disseminated mineral occurrences occur in the central, highly magnetic, fragment which is approximately 8 km long by 4.5 km wide. This area represents a target worthy of further investigation.
