Top Gun


  • Analogous to nearby Paradise Peak Mine – gold mineralization is high-sulfidation epithermal in character

  • Minor historic mining at Top Gun is evidenced by numerous prospecting pits and two shafts

  • No evidence of modern exploration or drilling

  • Gold mineralisation in rhyolitic tuff unit largely overlain by a concealing caprock

  • Initial targets are two silicified structures with broad zones of vuggy silica and clay alteration

Exploration Overview

  • Initial phase of soil, rock and stream sediment geochemical sampling completed

  • Further mapping, stream sampling & geophysical surveys

  • Maiden RC drilling program completed January 2022

  • Confirmed a gold-silver mineralised epithermal system

  • 3.05m at 1.3g/t Au and 26.5g/t Ag from 39.6m in hole TG005; (excludes 1.52m internal interval due to no sample from a historic mining void)

  • 400m along strike from TG005, drill hole TG009 intersected 10.6m at 0.4g/t Au from 42.7m

  • All 11 holes intersected anomalous gold within broad zones of Ag-As-Sb and silica-pyrite alteration
