Figure 1 – Halls Creek Project Locations

Rocktivity Gold has just completed the acquisition of a significant gold exploration project at Halls Creek in the East Kimberly region of Western Australia. Rocktivity takes 100% ownership of 6 tenements totaling 348km2 centred around the historic gold mining town of Halls Creek. The tenements were pegged by the vendors over historic gold occurrences along 100kms of strike accessible from the town of Halls Creek. The project has several strong targets based on significant results from both historic surface geochemistry and drilling activities as well as the various stream sediment derived gold targets within all the projects which have only had limited follow-up exploration. Several promising targets have been identified which have never been drilled.

There has been significant historic alluvial gold mining throughout the project areas but very limited exploration directed towards finding the source of the gold. Exploration to target intrusion related style gold mineralisation discovery initially at the Dry Creek prospect.

LOCATION

The Dry Creek Project is located 50km NW of Halls Creek, and 250km SSW of Kununurra in the Kimberley Region of Western Australia (Figure 1). The project is accessed from Halls Creek via the sealed Great Northern Hwy, unsealed station tracks, and unsealed tracks generated from previous exploration.

The Slinky Hill Project is located 75km NW of Halls Creek, and 220km SSW of Kununurra in the Kimberley Region of Western Australia (Figure 1). The project is accessed from Halls Creek via the sealed Great Northern Hwy, unsealed station tracks.

The Mt Carmel Project is located approximately 100km SW of Halls Creek and 380km SSW of Kununurra in the Kimberley Region of Western Australia (Figure 1). The project is accessed from Halls Creek via the sealed Great Northern Hwy, unsealed station tracks, and unsealed tracks generated from previous exploration.

The Ruebens Project is located between the Mt Carmel and Woodward Range Projects, 70km SW of Halls Creek and 360km SSW of Kununurra in the Kimberley Region of Western Australia (Figure 1). The project is accessed from Halls Creek via the sealed Great Northern Hwy, unsealed station tracks, and unsealed tracks generated from previous exploration.

The Woodward Range Project is located approximately 50km SSW of Halls Creek and 340km SSW of Kununurra in the Kimberley Region of Western Australia (Figure 1). The project is accessed from Halls Creek via the sealed Great Northern Hwy, unsealed station tracks, and unsealed tracks generated from previous exploration.

GEOLOGY

Local Geology

All of these projects cover strongly deformed portions of the Biscay and Olympio Formations together with some mafic intrusions from the Woodward Range Dolerite. Mt Carmel Project also covers a portion of the Mount Christine Granite, a coarsely porphyritic, medium grained monzogranite as well as a folded and fault package of banded iron formation (BIF) or chert. The main structures that occur in the Mt Carmel, Ruebens and Woodward Range Projects are the Angelo, Laura River, Mount Carmel, Mount Hawick, Springvale and Woodward Faults as well as the Mary River Lineament. The Dry Creek and Slinkey Hill Projects mainly cover broad open anticlinal and synclinal structures. Slinkey Hill also covers the north-northeast trend Slinkey Hill Fault.
