The Bogan River Carp Muster is on again February 9-10 down on the banks of the Bogan.

President of the Bogan Carp Muster Rob Avard said "It's all about catching carp and having a good family day out".

Mr Avard said each year the event brings great social and economic benefits to the community.

"The riverside caravan park is always booked out and people then shop locally, so that’s got to be an advantage to the community."

The event which has seen hundreds attend, including rugby league star and mad fisherman Andrew Ettingshausen, has as Mr Avard said “put us on the map”.

"It not only brings people together, we are trying to rid the system of carp, so we think we are getting the upper hand," he said.

Carp are highly regarded as a pest to many waterways primarily due to their destructive feeding habits.

Mr Avard described some of environmental impacts carp have on our inland rivers. “They ruin the reeds on the bottom of the river which are food for natural fish.”

The Bogan Carp Muster came about by Blake Hughes and his partner, and has continued for almost eight years. The event continues to grow and has major support from a number of people including the Bogan Shire and 2WEB.

To kick off the weekend there will be a social briefing on Friday, February 9 at the Nyngan RSL from 6.30pm.

This will give anglers the chance to see what’s in store for them.

The main event begins on Saturday 10 from 7am to 1pm when competitors are challenged to catch as many carp as they can.

Everyone is invited to participate in the day with categories ranging from 10 years and under, through to open male and female categories.

"Anyone entering the competition will require a fishing licence which can be sourced online," Mr Avard said.

He mentioned it is important all those who take part in the day have these requirements as fishing inspectors and maritime boat inspectors may be visiting the site on the day.

Mr Avard also had an important message for anyone attending the Carp Muster. "Remember to slip, slop, slap with the temperature expected to reach 40 degrees."

Prizes will also be awarded for the best dressed team and the best dressed individual.

Entry is $5 for individuals and $20 for a team.

Entry forms are available forms are available from Nyngan Toyota.

Great Southern sets development pathway for Mon Ami gold operation

Great Southern Mining Ltd (ASX:GSN) has set a development pathway for gold operations at Mon Ami in Western Australia after completing an in-house preliminary economic evaluation of the potential for an open-pit development.

Results are sufficiently positive for the company to initiate the full suite of requisite preliminary activities targeted at obtaining a mining approval under the Mining Act 1978 (WA) in 2021.

This progression towards development is expected to add significant underlying value to Mon Ami and the company’s gold strategy.

Development of the deposit offers a potential source of cash flow for ongoing funding of aggressive exploration plans across the gold portfolio – including Cox’s Find, at depth at Mon Ami and the Edinburgh Park Gold Project in North Queensland.

Development of the deposit offers a potential source of cash flow for ongoing funding of aggressive exploration plans across the gold portfolio – including Cox’s Find, at depth at Mon Ami and the Edinburgh Park Gold Project in North Queensland.

Testing high-grade extensions

Great Southern Mining chief executive officer Sean Gregory said: “We are pleased to announce that our in-house preliminary economic review has identified a potential low-cost development pathway for an open-pit mining operation at Mon Ami.

“The planned drilling program seeks to expand on this opportunity and test for higher grade extensions to the deposit at depth.

“Rapid development at Mon Ami has the potential to deliver a robust source of cash flow for GSN, allowing the further acceleration of the aggressive exploration plans across our Australian gold portfolio.”

Near-surface high-grade gold hits

Recent drill results at Mon Ami included several near-surface high-grade results – 11 metres at 7.9 g/t gold from 26 metres including 4 metres at 15.9 g/t and 4 metres at 12.4 g/t from 80 metres.

Initial technical studies have been scoped at the project to support a mining approval and include a review of the existing drill core and optical televiewer data by the company’s geotechnical consultants to recommend pit design parameters.

GSN believes that the high grades could extend to depth in an analogous fashion to the Ida H deposit 14 kilometres to the north of Mon Ami along the same regional shear zone, the Barnicoat Shear.

Upcoming drilling

The metallurgical characteristics of Mon Ami were tested in 2018 where the recoveries averaged 95% in the fresh and transitional rock, which will be the focus of any open pit development.

The maiden inferred resource of 1.1 million tonnes at 1.7 g/t for 59,000 ounces was estimated in 2018 and since then 2,073 metres of reverse circulation (RC) drilling has been conducted with further drilling is planned.

As a part of upcoming drilling, GSN plans to upgrade the resource to the indicated status based on an improved understanding of the deposit from the quality assured drilling and improved confidence around modifying factors.

Drill rig secured

The company has secured the services of its preferred RC drilling contractor to resume drilling operations at Laverton from the first week of December 2020.

Drilling will test these targets at Mon Ami as well as the targets at Cox’s Find.

Tempest Minerals in trading halt with capital raising news pending

Tempest Minerals Ltd (ASX:TEM) (FRA:LIF) has a capital raising announcement pending and has been granted a trading halt by the ASX.

The halt will remain in place until the earlier of the start of normal trading on Tuesday, November 17, 2020, or when an announcement is released to the market.

Securities last traded at 3.8 cents and since the market close on August 28 have traded in the range of 2.4 cents to 5.3 cents.

Drilling underway
The company is active at the Yalgoo projects around 400 kilometres north of Perth in WA with drilling of three priority targets beginning last month at the Warriedar West Prospect.

Tempest considers Yalgoo the forgotten goldfield, with world-class deposits every 10 kilometres, including high-grade gold, copper, zinc, tungsten and iron, and major infrastructure in place which represents a low-cost, high-impact exploration opportunity.

The drilling at Warriedar West is targeting intrusion-related gold system (IRGS) mineralisation.

The drilling at Warriedar West is targeting intrusion-related gold system (IRGS) mineralisation.

Gold and trace element anomalies typical of IRG-style mineralisation are present in the project and it includes considerable nugget-rich free gold exploited in modern times by prospectors as well as high-grade gold in rock chips.

Tempest is also undertaking surface sampling and drill planning at other projects within its portfolio.
