Jericho results merit boost as regional targets crumble

THE OZ Minerals/Minotaur Exploration Eloise joint venture has defined a 3.3km-long copper-gold system based on a fresh round of drilling that suggests Jericho could potentially host a world-class orebody, making up for the disappointment of testing three regional targets.

Drilling at Jericho has been promising.

 
 
 
The pair has been kicking up the rocks Jericho, within the Cloncurry region, since last year as the first real explorers to take a look at the area with drilling, apart from some past shallow drilling that would not explain the electromagnetic conductors mapped by Minotaur.
 
Minotaur used open-file aeromagnetic data and ground gravity data to model its targets - Jericho, 
Arlington, Defiance, Yukon and St Louis - leading into last year's drilling, where it successfully tested the first of three conductors along the Jericho system.
 
Extension drilling now suggests the system is strongly mineralised.
 
Hits have been return...
