Aruma holds 100% owenship of four highly prospective gold exploration projects in major, active Australian gold provinces, in WA and NSW.
The Scotia South Project consists of one Exploration Licence Application (ELA63/2037) and covers an area of 217km2. It is located approximately 200 kilometres south of the major regional centre of Kalgoorlie, and approximately 60 kilometres south of the mining town of Norseman.
The Company also holds the non-core Mount Deans Lithium Project (P63/2063) in the in the Mount Deans pegmatite field, approximately 13 km south of Norseman, in the Eastern Goldfields Terrane of the Yilgarn Craton.
The Mount Deans pegmatite field is Archaean in age and hosted in the north-south trending Dundas Hill greenstone belt. The pegmatite field covers an area of 6km north to south and 4 km in extension east to west, and comprises several dozens of individual pegmatite sheets and lenses.
Two phases of pegmatites are reported and the Type 2 in the north is considered later (deeper) and is suggested to be closer to a main cauldron or chamber that may host spodumene-rich material desirable for direct shipping.
