Outback Goldfields Corp . (the ” Company ” or ” Outback “) (CSE: OZ) is pleased to announce the commencement of a Phase 1 exploration program on its highly prospective gold projects located in the historic Victorian goldfields of Australia.

Highlights of the Phase 1 Drill Program

  • 4,000 meters of diamond drilling planned
  • Community engagement initiatives are underway
  • Multiple ground and airborne-based geophysical surveys and soil geochemical surveys planned

We are excited to commence a significant exploration program in the heart of the prolific Victorian goldfields. The primary objective of Phase 1 across the project portfolio is gold discovery via systematic target generation followed by drill testing. Outback has the premier package of tenements both proximate and adjacent to the Fosterville mine. Our technical team is eager to initiate exploration using modern methods ” stated Chris Donaldson , CEO.

Details of Exploration programs

Two of Outback’s four key assets in the Victorian goldfields will be subject to significant exploration programs starting in Q1 of 2021.

Glenfine

The Glenfine project is centered on a 30 km section of the north-trending, crustal-scale Avoca fault which juxtaposes Cambrian rocks of the Stawell zone to the west with Ordovician rocks of the Bendigo zone to the east. On the west side of the fault the property is underlain by a 20 km long by ~1 km wide, north-trending, Cambrian aged basalt dome termed the Glenfine Dome where widely spaced historic drilling along its eastern and western margins have outlined numerous occurrences of gold mineralization hosted near the basalt and meta-sediment contact (Figure 1). High-grade quartz reef-hosted gold mineralization has also been drilled at two primary target areas, the British Banner and Glenfine targets. Previous operators intersected numerous intervals of significant gold mineralization such as 3.8 metres of 9.0 grams per tonne (g/t) Au with 1.3 metres of 23.4 g/t Au in hole CCD01 at British Banner and 3.8 metres of 5.7 g/t Au with 0.8 metres of 21.0 g/t Au in hole PFD031 at Glenfine (see EL5344 2018 and EL5434 2016 Annual Reports*). Based on a 3D compilation of all available historic drill hole data, gold mineralization is considered open along strike and at depth at both prospects.

A significant field program is planned at Glenfine consisting of 4,000 metres of diamond drilling and concurrent property-scale induced polarization (IP) geophysics. Drilling will test the vertical and lateral extent of structurally controlled, quartz reef-hosted, high-grade gold mineralization at the British Banner and Glenfine targets. IP geophysics will be used to investigate extensions of the known mineralized reef systems and to target the mineralization potential of deformed sedimentary rocks near the underexplored, 20 km long contact with the Glenfine dome. These new geophysical data, together with previously completed airborne magnetics and regional gravity will be used to refine additional drill targets.

Yeungroon

The western side of the 698 km 2 Yeungroon project contains the historic Golden Jacket hard-rock reef mine associated with the regional-scale, northwest-trending Golden Jacket fault which cuts Ordovician rocks of the Stawell Zone (Figure 2). Historic mining records indicate the Golden Jacket mine produced quartz-rich ore with grades of up to 250 g/t Au (VICMINE Report ID 373410**). Shallow cover over most of the tenement hinders exploration along the interpreted strike-extent of the Golden Jacket fault. A property-scale airborne magnetic geophysical survey is planned to assist with structural interpretation of the Golden Jacket fault and other regionally important mineralized structures. Higher-resolution ground surveys over prospect sites will follow to help refine the local structural model and aid drill targeting. A soil geochemical survey aimed at defining the mineralization potential of key structures and structural intersections will be completed following the geophysical survey. These soil-geochemical surveys will also include expanding the footprints of the high-arsenic Wedderburn soil anomalies (see PTR.ASX announcement dated March 27 th , 2020***) located on the eastern side of the property. Follow-up top of bedrock RAB drilling of defined coincident geophysical and geochemical anomalies is also planned to assist with refining new drill targets.

Community Engagement

Outback recognises the importance of open and honest community engagement in all our exploration activities. We approach all of our exploration activities in a sustainable manner and ensure our activities comply with the Victorian Code of Practice for Mineral Exploration. As such, community consultation with local landowners has commenced.

Data Verification

Data disclosed in this News Release relating to sampling and drilling results is historical in nature. Neither the Company nor a qualified person has yet verified this data and therefore investors should not place undue reliance on such data. In some cases, the data may be unverifiable due to lack of drill core. Mineralization hosted on adjacent and/or nearby and/or geologically similar properties is not necessarily indicative of mineralization hosted on the Company’s property. The technical information disclosed in this News Release has been reviewed and approved by Christopher Leslie , P. Geo., a qualified person as defined by National Instrument 43-101.

Australia’s 5 Most Valuable Mineral Exports

Australia’s economy is largely based on its natural resources, with the minerals sector making the greatest contribution to the nation’s exports.

Four of Australia’s states and territories rank in the top 20 mining jurisdictions in the world, according to the Fraser Institute’s latest annual survey of mining companies: Western Australia (fourth), Southern Australia (seventh), Queensland (16th) and the Northern Territory (19th).

These mining jurisdictions demonstrate a high level of investment attractiveness mainly due to their mineral-rich geology, solid infrastructure, stellar economic environment and government support for the resources industry at both the federal and state level.
