About Fosterville South
Fosterville South began with two, 100% owned, high-grade gold projects called the Lauriston and Golden Mountain Projects, and has since acquired a large area of granted and application tenements containing further epizonal (low-temperature) high-grade gold mineralisation called the Providence Project and a large group of recently consolidated license tenement applications called the Walhalla Belt Project, which contain a variety of epizonal and intrusion related style gold mineralisation, all in the state of Victoria, Australia. The Fosterville South land package, assembled over a multi-year period, notably includes a 600 sq. km property immediately to the south of and within the same geological framework that hosts Agnico Eagle’s Fosterville epizonal gold tenements. Additionally, Fosterville South has gold-focused projects called the Moormbool and Tallangallook, which are also located in the state of Victoria, Australia. Moormbool project has epizonal style gold mineralisation and Tallangallook has mesozonal and intrusion relation gold mineralisation.
All of FSX’s properties, with the possible exception of Moormbool, have had historical gold production from hard rock sources despite limited modern exploration and drilling.
Recently, Fosterville South entered into an agreement with Wild Dog Resources Inc. (“WDR”) to acquire a significant 2,166km² mineral exploration land package in Papua New Guinea (as described in FSX News Release dated April 19, 2023).
The land package included in the acquisition comprises multiple Exploration Licenses (EL) and Exploration License Applications (ELA).It includes both early-stage and advanced-stage exploration targets with high-grade epithermal vein and porphyry-style mineralisation present.
The Arau Project consist of one EL and one ELA located in the Kainantu region, and includes the Mt. Victor Prospect, where previous drilling found multiple phase intrusive complexes of copper and gold mineralisation.
The Wild Dog project contains two ELAs, EL2516 and EL2761, located on the island of New Britain and about 50km southwest of Rabaul and Kokopo, PNG.
The Kesar Creek Project has one ELA2711 and is located 10km west of the Kainantu Gold Mine owned and operated by K92 Mining.
WDR has done significant work on various projects in the past two years, generating multiple high priority drill targets.
