ABOUT THE HAWAII PROJECT
The Hawaii Project is located approximately 50km west of the Sinclair Nickel Project, owned by Talisman Mining Limited, and 90km southwest of Cosmos, owned by Western Areas Limited. Both of these projects were only recently acquired by their current owners and are undergoing major exploration programmes, reflecting the increased focus on nickel sulphide exploration in this area of the Agnew-Wiluna belt.
St George acquired 100% of the Hawaii Project from BHP Billiton Nickel West in October 2015. The Project is located along the Ida Fault, a significant Craton-scale structure that marks the boundary between the Eastern Goldfields Superterrane to the east and the Youanmi Terrane to the west.
The Mt Goode Rift that hosts the Cosmos nickel complex (“Cosmos”) to the north is interpreted to be a splay off the Ida Fault. The geology at Hawaii could be contiguous with the stratigraphy that hosts Cosmos, one of the highest grade nickel mines ever discovered with a resource over 500,000 tonnes of contained nickel.
Reconnaissance shallow aircore drilling completed by BHP Billiton at the Hawaii Project in 2012 discovered over 5km of moderate to high MgO ultramafics adjacent to the Ida Fault. This area was previously interpreted as granite, and the discovery of prospective ultramafics was a significant exploration milestone.
St George is escalating on-ground exploration at Hawaii with drill ready targets for nickel sulphide and gold mineralisation.
