Ashburton Minerals announced excellent first-pass results of a surface geochemical survey completed over the Sunday Bore Project (E09/1308) in WA which indicate the presence of two uranium anomalies and one copper anomaly within the project area. In addition, field observations have identified the possible continuation of the Gifford Creek Carbonatite Complex into the project area. This interpreted continuation is coincident with a zone of elevated potassium, copper and vanadium geochemistry as identified by the current survey. The two uranium anomalies both occur within exposed calcrete in the southern part of the tenement. Anomalous uranium values, of 40 ppm or above, occur over a considerable width of up to 6 km before being obscured by alluvial sheetwash deposits. The anomaly in the southeast of the project area is of particular interest as it peaks at 80 ppm U, with some samples also returning elevated vanadium values.
