Arcadia Project - E51/1209 (Accent 100%)

The Arcadia project comprises of Exploration Licence E51/1209 and is located approximately 45km south west of Meekatharra in the Murchison District of the Murchison Mineral Field, Western Australia.

The Arcadia property is underlain by an attenuated and faulted southern extension of the Archaean Abbotts Greenstone Belt, largely buried beneath superficial cover. The greenstone succession comprises tholeiitic volcanic rocks, fine grained clastics, felsic volcanics and mafic intrusions.

At the Hope River Prospect previous RC and diamond drilling has identified an auriferous sulphidic quartz dolerite associated with a 2km length of the N-S trending Hope River shear zone, a splay fault off the regional NE striking Abernethy Shear Zone that occurs immediately west of the licence area. Intense weathering to about 90m depth occurs in some areas. The most significant gold mineralization is associated with quartz dolerite intrusions along a western mineralized shear of the Hope River shear zone and requires further follow up. The most significant intersections include:

- 8m @ 4.24 g/t Au (MHD 46 on cross section 7023950mN)
- 8m @ 3.89 g/t Au (MHC 21 on cross section 7023235mN)
- 1m @ 15.5 g/t Au (MHC 13 on cross section 7024435mN)

Aircore drill testing of a 2km untested portion of the western mineralized shear that extends north of the Hope River prospect was completed. Anomalous composite assay results (peak 8m @ 1.2 g/t Au) occur over more than 1km strike length and require RC follow up.

Potential also exists at the main Hope River prospect for the definition of high grade shoots as delineated by Doray Minerals (ASX:DRM) at Andy Well. There are also a number of geochemical gold anomalies defined by regolith drilling which require follow up on the western and eastern flank of the Hope River Prospect which have so far received little attention.
