Areachap Exploration

Orion has a large 3,135km2 of tenement holdings and applications within the highly prospective Areachap Belt, which hosts the Company’s Prieska and Jacomynspan Projects. The Areachap Belt is an under-explored region with high metal endowment, offering outstanding potential for the discovery of both Volcanogenic Massive Sulphide (VMS) mineralisation and intrusive Ni-Cu-PGE mineralisation.

Orion has an exceptional project pipeline.

  • Targeting high-quality deposits in an under-explored district
  • Continue organic and greenfield growth in key locations
  • Rapidly develop mineral prospects to achieve targeted production and industry leading operating efficiencies

Multiple targets have been identified within Orion’s mineral rights, with prospecting rights and new applications including:

Masiqhame: Current prospecting rights with known deposits
  • Kantienpan Zn-Cu: 1.5 Mt at 4.4% Zn and 0.4% Cu*
  • Boksputs Cu-Zn
  • Untested JMP style intrusives
Marydale: PR application by OE4
  • Witkop Au(-Cu): 416 800 t at 1.59 g/t Au
  • Scoping Study ready
Orion Exploration No 1 (OE1): New prospecting right
  • Area to north of Masiqhame
  • Cover northern strike continuation of Kantienpan and Boksputs
Orion Exploration No 4 (OE4): PR Application
  • CGS reported ultra-mafic rocks
  • Proximity to known Ni–Cu deposits

* Unpublished Mineral Resource
