The Pyramid tenement group is located 180km south of Townsville (Figure 1). The project, covering 150km² embraces two main areas prospective for gold, being the West Pyramid Range and East Pyramid Range (Figure 2).
Minotaur is attracted to the project by the very credible drilling history and an extensive geochemical database, positioning Pyramid as a compilation of advanced gold exploration prospects. West Pyramid Range offers significant potential to expand the gold mineralisation footprint defined through historic work, especially along an 8km section of the Gettysberg Fault corridor. The East Pyramid Range is less advanced, however, Minotaur is of the view the area offers potential for Intrusion Related Gold Systems (IRGS), similar in style to other well-known gold deposits in the district (Figure 1) such as Mount Leyshon (+3.5Moz) and Mount Wright (+1Moz).
Minotaur’s inaugural work front is focussed on the Gettysburg trend (Figure 3) along the West Pyramid Range, following Minotaur’s geological model. Inaugural RC drilling in April 2021 successfully replicated historic drill results within the 500m strike envelope of known gold lodes.
Subject to resolution of land access and compensation arrangements, Minotaur intends to insert 2 diamond holes to obtain structural understanding of the lode system. Meanwhile, an IP survey will proceed between Marrakesh-Pradesh prospects.
