The Pandanus Creek HPQ project is located on EPM 26727, 30km east of Georgetown and 320km northwest of Townsville in Far North Queensland and contains the White Springs known quartz occurrence.
The White Springs outcrop comprises the central quartz core of a zoned pegmatite. The quartz is visually very clean and white. The Company has collected a single rock chip sample at White Springs which recorded 99.98% SiO2 (Table 1) demonstrating the potential of the deposit for HPQ.
Whilst the exposed outcrop size is limited to approximately 4,000m2 ASQ believes there is potential for extensions under cover along with additional zoned pegmatites within the lease.
Planning is underway to complete further rock chip sampling at the site and to carryout detailed exploration targeting additional zoned pegmatites in the area.
