Peako’s Broadhurst (Sunday Creek) Project tenement is located in the Rudall River area of the Paterson province of Western Australia (Figure 8). Peako also has three long standing applications for exploration licences located close to its Broadhurst Project tenement. Historical geological mapping indicates bedrock geology of the project area is largely carbonaceous shales and siltstones of the Broadhurst Formation, and lesser quartz sandstone and siltstone of the underlying Coolbro Sandstone Formation.
The Broadhurst tenement is under-explored and hosts an array of encouraging features that indicate the potential of the area for Nifty (Cu) or Maroochydore (Cu-Co) style mineralisation. Historic exploration has been minimal and fragmented, comprising a ‘revolving door’ of explorers, divided in commodity focus between Base Metals or Uranium. Only very limited, precursory drilling has been completed on the tenement (a total of 6 holes for 1,243m) all testing for Uranium, with base metal mineralisation targets in the Broadhurst Formation remaining untested.
