Historical Work

AussieCan Geoscience Inc. performed an advanced magnetic processing summary of historical airborne surveys covering the project area for Gold Hunter Resources Inc. in 2022. Results form the Geovision Geoscience Magnetic and VLF-EM survey in 2009 the Tilt Derivative and Total Magnetic Field data indicates evidence of folding within the highlighted area. Fold-nose structures in particular are a very attractive area for gold precipitation and a detailed structural study of this area was recommended.
