Project: Cestos Shear Zone
The licence covers 625km2 and was awarded to Deveton in October 2009. Hummingbird owns 80% of Deveton.
The Ba licence lies in Archaean rocks immediately west of the Cestos Shear Zone, and is also immediately north of Amlib United Minerals Inc’s Cestos project, with its multiple gold targets. During early 2011, Hummingbird’s ﬁeld teams collected over 1,300 soil samples over two grids. These grids were sited over exciting looking gold targets, as deﬁned by previous stream sediment sampling. The gold targets are broadly associated with a suite of Archaean rocks including banded iron formations (BIFs) and metavolcanics.
A preliminary examination of gold results from the soil grids has shown a number of elongated linear gold in soil anomalies, which are strike-parallel and up to 1.5km in length. These soil anomalies will be further investigated by trenching.
