Alkane Resources has won the NSW Minerals Council’s 2021 Explorer of the Year award, with the Boda discovery at the Northern Molong Porphyry Project (NMPP) in the Central West Region of NSW about 35 km east of Dubbo. The Explorer of the Year award acknowledges the significant contribution of exploration to the NSW mining industry.
Alkane has had an interest in the region since 2004, and has now discovered potentially world-class gold-copper porphyry mineralisation at the Boda prospect. Following extensive geological mapping, geophysical surveys and lithogeochemical characterisation over several years, Alkane’s drilling program demonstrated an extensive mineralised system similar to Cadia. Mineralisation is open to north, south and at depth, with the project having multi-billion dollar potential.
