Alien Metals Ltd, a minerals exploration and development company, has reported the results of the recently completed litho-structural interpretation and target generation study completed over the Elizabeth Hill Silver Project based on recent and historic combined airborne geophysical survey data. The project area includes the mining lease containing the historic Elizabeth Hill Silver Mine and the Munni Munni North Exploration Lease that surrounds it. The work was carried out by Southern Geoscience Consultants of Perth, Western Australia, a leading geophysical consulting company with extensive experience in this type of commission.


  • Of 20 priority targets identified, seven highest priority targets delineated for platinum group elements (PGE) and silver (Ag)/nickel (Ni)/copper (Cu) mineralisation.
  • A further seven level 2 priority targets and six level 3 priority targets also delineated.
  • New targets previously not defined amongst these.
  • Exploration recommendation methods to focus development.

Bill Brodie Good, CEO and Technical Director of Alien Metals, commented: "A fantastic 20 priority targets were delineated by Southern Geoscience from the results of the merging of the combined magnetic data for the project area. We are very pleased with the results of this study and are already planning follow up ground exploration work on the higher priority targets with the goal of making the next discovery, while at the same time planning update work on the silver mine and the tailings as well. As expected, some historically defined prospects were identified but we also are really pleased to have some new targets which related to more recent new discoveries in the region that can be now applied to this project area.

"The company is now working with various consultants who possess extensive knowledge of the area, as well as the historical work carried out, to support the company's planning and execution of the next phase of exploration programmes on several of the priority targets.

"Alien is excited to be pushing on with its exploration plans and field work and looks forward to updating the market in the coming months."
