Located on the western rim of the Tauern Window the Goldeck-Siflitz Project lies to the show of Lumfeld on the eastern side of Lind-Drau Valley in southwestern Carinthia in the mining district of Leoben. The Goldeck-Siflitz Project lies within an Exploration Permit comprising 57 Freischurfe, which encompass the historic mine workings of Guginock within a total area of approximately 27.6 km² (Figure 1).
A large number of ore occurrences (Sb, Hg, Au, Ag, Cu, Pb, Zn, W) have been mined in the Goldeck-Kreuzeck mountain ranges. A large number is bound to massive tectonic fault-shear and over-thrust zones exploited for gold at Guginock and Siflitz districts. The 1920s explorations at Guginock discovered a significantly mineralised system, with pyrite, two generations of arsenopyrite, gold and traces of base metal sulphides at grades from about 3 to 20 g/t Au. Re-sampling by BBU in the 1970s gave values ranging from 4.8 to 18.2 g/t Au, averaging 12 g/t Au. This project is not the primary focus of the Company’s immediate exploration program, but will be systematically explored over the next 5 years.
