Flamingo IOCG Project

Flamingo IOCG Project

The Flamingo Project is located 105 km NNW of Cloncurry and comprises mining leases with a combined area of more than 13 square km. Drilling by MIM in the early 1990’s intersected encouraging gold and copper grades.

QMN in its 2008 prospectus included an independent geologist’s report (Australian Geoscientists – author Neil Stuart) which stated: “Many old copper workings are present in the area, although only minor amounts of ore have been mined. Mining Lease 90103 contains scattered workings that include prospecting pits, shafts and costeans while shallow prospecting pits have been reported in the northern part of Mining Lease 90104.”

MIM completed exploration within the project area during 1990-96, while investigating EPM7052 for economic concentrations of copper-gold mineralisation. Follow-up exploration included geological mapping. Drilling was undertaken by QMC to test the coincident copper-gold soil anomaly, which resulted in encouraging copper and gold grades being intersected. As well, several MIM holes intersected wide intervals of oxide copper-gold mineralisation.
