About the Normanby Island Project
EL 1091 Normanby - Imwauna Flagship Project
The Normanby exploration licence - EL 1091 - is located on the north side of Normanby Island, approximately 80 kilometres northeast of Alotau, the provincial capital of Milne Bay province, eastern Papua New Guinea. The project consists of two main prospects, Imwauna and Kelas, along with numerous untested prospects. The flagship Imwauna gold deposit is a high grade, near surface, low sulfidation, epithermal vein gold system. Gold mineralization ranges from 0.5 metres to 6.0 metres in the Imwauna Main structure. The Imwauna prospect remains open in the North and South at strike and at depth.
EL 1069 Sehulea
The Sehulea exploration licence - EL 1069 - is located north east of Imwauna on Normanby Island and contains several low sulphidation epithermal gold deposits which require additional drill testing. Previous results indicate the area contains extensive lower grade gold mineralization over intercepts of up to 60 metres core length with grades ranging between 1-2 g/tonne gold. Mineralization is associated with extensive silicification, disseminated, and semi-massive pyrite, with a positive correlation between higher pyrite concentrations and gold.
