Loubel Zinc Prospects
The Loubel Zinc Prospects are located on the southern side of the Tiebele Dome within altered felsic and mafic volcanics and volcanoclastics. The east-west zinc anomaly is defined by a 100 parts per million zinc anomaly up to 7000 metres long and 1500 metres wide.
Field mapping in the Loubel T03 area confirmed the occurrence of the same stratigraphic succession as observed at the Nabenia Prospect and follow-up drilling by Ampella intersected 5 metres at 3.8 per cent Zn from 66 metres in LODH001.
Field mapping also identified a significant untested VHMS alteration system to the west of Loubel T03 with a large hydrothermal carbonate apron to the intense talc-carbonate alteration. The size and nature of the alteration zone suggests that this region warrants further investigation in association with the basin analysis reconstructions and prospectivity analysis.
