Metewoi gold-copper prospect

 

Significant gold and copper results from outcrop samples at Metewoi River have opened up exploration potential for high-sulphidation epithermal gold and porphyry copper-gold mineralization. The Metewoi prospect is 3-4 km southeast of the Kuliuta copper-gold prospect. Significant rock results from Metewoi are presented in Table 3.

 

Extensive outcrop of quartz-alunite breccia covers a 6 km2 area at Metewoi (Fig 1 &2) and has been the target of detailed mapping and grid soil sampling by PPM geologists during the second half of 2011. The Metewoi alteration is coincident with large airborne magnetic and thorium anomalies. Chalcocite, covellite and chalcopyrite have been observed in quartz veins within the quartz-alunite breccias. The coincidence of high arsenic and copper rock values and widespread quartz-alunite alteration at Metewoi is not unlike high sulphidation alteration and mineralization in the upper parts of major porphyry copper-gold deposits in New Guinea at Wafi-Golpu and Frieda-Nena and elsewhere in the Indonesian and Philippines archipelagoes.
