Yes – Refer to Report
In 1970, 16 auger holes were drilled and sampled – Refer to Geological Report
The Mt Tolmer historical rock chip program has yielded iron assay up to 61.8% Fe from surface along with 20% to 40% Fe over the Tabletop prospect
Historical metallurgical studies conducted during the 1970’s over the Tabletop Prospect indicate magnetic beneficiation of the iron mineralisation appears feasible
Estimation of laterite contains 20 million tons of material per 1.5 vertical metres
Extensive strong magnetic targets remain untested.
