Orion Gold NL (ASX: ORN) is an Australian minerals explorer which is aiming to deliver shareholder value by exploring and developing its high quality portfolio of projects located in world class mineral provinces across Australia.
Orion has active exploration programs underway at:
The Fraser Range Nickel-Copper & Gold Project in Western Australia - a sizable land package holding of granted tenements in the Fraser Range, lying between two of the most significant Australian mineral discoveries of the paset decade: the world class Tropicana gold deposit and the Nova-Bollinger nickel-copper deposit. Current exploration is targeting magmatic hosted nickel-copper dicoveries similar to the Nova-Bollinger deposit to the south and deposits wihtin the Thompsons Nickel Belt in Canada.
The Connors Arc Epithermal Gold Project in central Queensland - located in a similar geological and structural setting to other signigicant epithermal systems such as Cracow, Rannes, Mt Mackenzie and Mt Carlton. Orion believes it has identified a substantial, highly propspective intermediate sulphidation target at the Auroa Flats Prospect based on field mapping and re-interpretation of shallow drilling results.
The Walhalla Project in Victoria - located within one of Australia's most productive historical gold fields, Orion has identified signiificant underexplored potential for copper, nickel and Platinum Group Elements (PGE) mineralisation within the Woods Points Dyke Swarm. Walhalla represents a unique opportunity to identigy deposits of metals which are anticipated to have significant global demand in coming decades.
