Australia Resource Investing 101

If you’re reading this, chances are you’ve seen some of the recent buzz around Australia as a destination for resource investment and potential profit.

Australia ranks as the 13th largest economy in the world, due in no small part to its mineral largess. Between 2010 and 2020, mining contributed an impressive 10.4 percent to Australia’s economy, translating to a gross domestic product of AU$202 billion.

The country is a global mining hotspot, and its abundant natural resources and government incentives have attracted some of the mining industry’s biggest names: BHP (ASX:BHP,LSE:BHP,NYSE:BHP), Rio Tinto (ASX:RIO,LSE:RIO,NYSE:RIO) and Newcrest Mining (ASX:NCM,OTC Pink:NCMGF).

Elizabeth Geophysical Survey Highlights Scale Potential

HIGHLIGHTS

  • The first ever high resolution airborne geophysics survey on Elizabeth has identified the potential for a much larger scale gold system that significantly increases the footprint and depth extensions of potential gold mineralisation
  • The Blue Creek Porphyry intrusion, which hosts the high-grade gold mineralisation at Elizabeth likely covers an area >4x its previously known extent
  • The Blue Creek Porphyry appears to extend at least 2km below surface (ie, approximately 10x deeper than currently drill-tested)
  • Two additional anomalies have been identified as potential intrusive bodies similar to the Blue Creek Porphyry. These two anomalies show strong continuity along strike and are also extensive at depth

Tempus Resources Ltd (” Tempus ” or the ” Company “) (ASX:TMR)(TSX.V:TMRR)(OTCQB:TMRFF) is pleased to announce the results of the first ever high resolution airborne magnetic and radiometric geophysical surveys completed over the entire Elizabeth Gold Project in Southern BC, Canada
