The Mable Creek Project (EL6619, EL6620 & EL6627) area is ideally situated in the northern extent of the Olympic Dam Cu-Au province, First Au’ tenure is ~ 1050 km2. Mabel Creek is 100% First Au owned and was identified through project generation of vacant ground in 2020
The Mabel Creek area was identified by the winner and runner-up of the SA Government “Gawler Challenge” as one of the key prospective areas underexplored for IOCG and Central Gawler-style Au Mineralisation
The Mabel Creek Project tenements straddles a major, deep seeded E-W trending fault system. The tenure also contains prospective Hiltaba suite granitic intrusive, an important driver for IOCG and Gawler-style gold mineralisation in the Gawler Craton. The Mabel Creek Geological Domain has relatively thin cover sediment (20-200m) compared to the rest of the province (up to 1-2 km)
First Au’s Mabel Creek tenure is surrounded by tenements from major mining houses, including BHP, Rio Tinto, FMG and Oz Minerals, who now see this area as a tier-1 exploration opportunity and are actively exploring. Oz Minerals and Rio Tinto have recently applied for, or have granted tenure, surrounding the First Au’s ground.
