Jamieson Minerals NSW Tenement
Nexus has been granted ~15,000km2 of tenure over prospective critical minerals tenure in NSW
Critical Minerals Exploration Package
- 12-month critical minerals evaluation study utilising regional scale approach – results in significant ground position now secured
- Nexus has been granted ~15,000km2 of tenure over prospective critical minerals tenure
- The Lachlan Orogen’s Wagga-Omeo Zone (WOZ) determined to be highly prospective for Lithium-Caesium-Tantalum (LCT) pegmatites in addition to tin mineralisation
- The WOZ extends ~700km in a north-south direction and averages ~80km east-west – from Omeo in southern Victoria to Nymagee in central NSW
Nexus Minerals has recognised an opportunity to access a significant underexplored landholding in Victoria and NSW which is highly prospective for Australia’s demand for critical minerals. The 12-month assessment and evaluation study resulted in the Company’s emerging ground position of critical mineral exploration projects in Australia.
The critical mineral search commenced by assessing the LCT pegmatite potential of the Lachlan Orogen of Victoria and NSW. This extended to the association of tin mineralisation to the emplacement of LCT pegmatites.
“Whilst focused on our Wallbrook project in the Eastern Goldfields of Western Australia, it has also been a very productive 12 months of work that has led Nexus to be able to establish a significant ground position, in such a prospective region. The results from our desktop review and the opportunities identified have led us to undertake one of the largest pegging exercises of ground in NSW. Field crews are already on the ground across multiple project areas commencing initial ground truthing. This critical mineral search will be undertaken alongside the exploration planned for the Company’s Bethanga porphyry Cu-Au project”
Nexus Managing Director Andy Tudor, 29 March 2023
Nexus reviewed geology and lithogeochemical data from the Wagga-Omeo Zone (WOZ) in southern NSW as part of a regional-scale approach to select exploration ground for LCT pegmatites in the Lachlan Orogen. The objective was to establish from first principals, intrusive rocks permissive for LCT pegmatite development and assess their fertility using open-file data rather than focusing only on known tin and lithium occurrences.
A review of open file geology and whole-rock geochemistry confirmed that much of the exploration ground applied for in southern NSW is underlain by reduced, fractionated, peraluminous S-type granites similar to those associated with the spodumene-bearing pegmatites of the Dorchap Range in north-eastern Victoria.
A significant ground position (~15,000km2) in the WOZ has been pegged, to allow for the identification of the most prospective areas utilising; re-processing of open file geophysical and geochemical datasets, systematic mapping, sampling and high-quality geochemical analysis of intrusive rocks.
The tenure is considered prospective for lithium, caesium, tantalum and tin, with Nexus having a first mover advantage in the region, allowing for regional scale exploration and targeting.
Nexus has been granted ~15,000km2 of tenure over prospective critical minerals tenure in New South Wales.
