The Aurenere Project, acquired by Apollo Minerals in March 2018, is a tungsten and gold project located in northern Spain comprising an Investigation Permit application.
The Project is contiguous with the Couflens Project in neighbouring France, and provides an extension of strike along a highly prospective corridor for tungsten and gold.
An initial reconnaissance field campaign carried out at the project returned high grade gold (up to 33.90 g/t) and tungsten (up to 5.49% WO3) from rock samples. These results were reported to the market on 27 March 2018. For full results please click here.
The Company has submitted its application for an investigation permit which includes plans for a drill program. The drill program is designed to test the Aurenere Prospect, an outcrop of approximately 100m2 of pyrrhotite rich skarn located at the contact between a granodiorite and carbonate-bearing sediments, which was mapped and systematically sampled in late 2017.
The application included a Simplified Environmental Impact Assessment, a Restoration Program and 1 and 3 Year Work Plans.
