Lyell gold project - overview
Historical Production: 91koz at 18.4g/t Au with a cut off grade of 15g/t Au
4km long surface soil geochemical anomaly
The Lyell gold soil anomaly extends for 4km north-west from the Alpine United Mine that produced ~80koz of gold at an average recovered grade of ~17g/t between 1874 and closing in 1912.
The gold soil anomaly contains four high grade areas; Alpine United, Break of Day, Mt Lyell and Mt Lyell North.
Work to date has focused on trenching the 1km long Mt Lyell North prospect. No drilling has been undertaken. Trench results include:
- 7.0m @ 13.8g/t Au
- 8.0m @ 6.3g/t Au
Siren has discovered an outcropping quartz reef with significant visible gold in the north-west end of the Mt Lyell soil anomaly. The reef is surrounded by disseminated acicular arsenopyrite for a total thickness of approximately 2m, with results pending.
