Orion is currently conducting exploration activities within the following project locations, each offering the potential for world-class discoveries.
South Africa - Orion has signed binding term sheets, inclduing a more advanced project, which adds diversification to our portfolio of projects. The Areachap Project located approx. 350km's from Kimberley in South Africa, includes the historical Prieska Copper Mine which is recorded as one of the world's 30 largest VMS base metal deposits. This project acquisition will also give Orion the Marydale Project, located a close 60km's from the Prieska Copper Mine.
Western Australia – Orion holds significant land-holdings in the emerging Fraser Range Belt, famous for the Tropicana and Nova-Bollinger discoveries, where the Company is exploring for nickel-copper and gold mineralisation.
Queensland – A substantial and highly prospective intermediate sulphidation, epithermal gold-silver target has been identified at Aurora Flats, part of Orion’s Connors Arc Project in central Queensland. This style of deposit is globally significant and accounts for a substantial proportion of world gold production.
Victoria – Orion holds the right to explore for copper, nickel and Platinum Group Elements (PGE) within the historic Walhalla Project area.
