OREAS 600b

OREAS 600b was prepared from a blend of silver-copper-gold bearing ores from Evolution Mining’s Mount Carlton Operation in Queensland, Australia and argillic rhyodacite waste rock sourced from a quarry east of Melbourne, Australia. A small amount of chalcocite-rich ore from the Sepon Mine in Laos was also added to help achieve the desired copper grade.

The mineralisation assemblage at Mount Carlton consists of pyrite, enargite/tennantite, tetrahedrite, digenite, covellite, sphalerite, galena, alunite, dickite, kaolinite and vuggy silica, hosted in advanced argillic altered rhyodacite containing sulphur-salts.

Twenty five commercial analytical laboratories participated in the program to certify the elements reported in Table 1. The following methods were employed:

  • Gold via 25-50g fire assay with AAS finish (14 laboratories) and ICP-OES (10 laboratories) finish;
  • Gold via 10-40g aqua regia digestion with ICP-MS finish (10 laboratories) and AAS (2 laboratories) finish;
  • Sulphur by infra-red combustion analysis (19 laboratories);
  • 4-Acid digestion for full elemental suite ICP-OES/MS finish (up to 22 laboratories depending on the element).
  • Aqua regia digestion for full elemental suite ICP-OES finish (up to 22 laboratories depending on the element) and AAS finish (1 laboratory);
  • Gold by instrumental neutron activation analysis (INAA) on 20 x 85mg subsamples to confirm homogeneity (ANSTO, Lucas Heights).
