Severe, un​usual weather likely to cause damage

A bout of wild weather is due to hit the South West on Tuesday, according to the Bureau of Meteorology. Photo: Jarred McGill

The Bureau of Meteorology has issued a warning to residents across the South Western corner of the state, branding the next bout of winter weather as “unusual” and “likely to cause damage to homes.”

The front is expected to be windier than a typical front and to affect a larger area than usual at this time of year.

The bureau warned that travel would be dangerous during the weather activity and that properties were likely to be damaged in the high winds.

In south west WA, it is likely to produce the kind of weather that is only seen about five times per year.

A strengthening northerly flow ahead of a strong cold front will cause winds and rain to increase from late Monday along the west coast.

The Bureau of Meteorology has issued a warning to residents across the South Western corner of the state, branding the next bout of winter weather as “unusual” and “likely to cause damage to homes.”

The front is expected to be windier than a typical front and to affect a larger area than usual at this time of year.

The bureau warned that travel would be dangerous during the weather activity and that properties were likely to be damaged in the high winds.

In south west WA, it is likely to produce the kind of weather that is only seen about five times per year.

A strengthening northerly flow ahead of a strong cold front will cause winds and rain to increase from late Monday along the west coast.

The strong cold front will move through during Tuesday, with damaging winds with gusts to 100 kilometres per hour possibly resulting in damage to homes and property.

The threat of damaging winds will extend eastwards to include southern inland parts during Tuesday.

There is a slight risk of dangerous gusts in excess of 125 kilometres per hour that could cause significant damage or destruction to homes and property in localised coastal areas between Bunbury and Walpole late Monday and again during Tuesday morning with the passage of the front.

Tides are likely to rise above the normal high tide mark with very rough seas and potential flooding of low-lying coastal areas during Tuesday, particularly in the Geographe Bay area.

Damaging surf conditions are likely which may cause beach erosion in coastal areas between Jurien Bay and Walpole, particularly in Geographe Bay from late Monday night.

The heaviest rainfall is expected in coastal parts between Jurien Bay and Walpole with only light rainfall over eastern inland parts of the warning area.

The Department of Fire and Emergency Services advises that people should:

  • If outside find safe shelter away from trees, power lines, storm water drains and streams.
  • Close your curtains and blinds, and stay inside away from windows.
  • Unplug electrical appliances and do not use land line telephones if there is lightning.
  • If boating, swimming or surfing leave the water.
  • Be alert and watch for hazards on the road such as fallen power lines and loose debris.
  • Keep away from flooded drains, rivers, streams and waterways.
  • Be careful of fallen trees, damaged buildings and debris.
  • Be careful of fallen power lines. They are dangerous and should always be treated as live.
  • Assess your home, car and property for damage.
  • If damage has occurred take photos and contact your insurance company to organise permanent repairs.
  • If your home or property has significant damage, like a badly damaged roof or flooding, call the SES on 132 500.

Visit www.emergency.wa.gov.au, call 13 DFES (13 3337) to stay up to date with weather warnings.

De Grey Mining confident Hemi gold discovery has tier-1 production potential

De Grey Mining Limited (ASX:DEG) is Australias fastest-growing gold company, with the recent Hemi discovery in Western Australia and strong newsflow reflected by their market cap which is now around A$1 billion.

The Hemi discovery sits within the Mallina Gold Project and is a new style of mineralisation in the Pilbara region – intrusion-hosted, large-scale and close to the surface with grade continuity. It is also is largely underexplored with district-scale upside.

Relatively unexplored[hhmc]
While it has the same geological setting as the Yilgarn Craton, which has a very mature exploration history of more than 120 years, the Pilbara Craton has only been actively explored for the last 20 years.

De Grey Mining Limited (ASX:DEG) is Australias fastest-growing gold company, with the recent Hemi discovery in Western Australia and strong newsflow reflected by their market cap which is now around A$1 billion.

Relatively unexplored


While it has the same geological setting as the Yilgarn Craton, which has a very mature exploration history of more than 120 years, the Pilbara Craton has only been actively explored for the last 20 years.

The company is confident the region could host new shallow discoveries, unlike in the Yilgarn where new discoveries are only expected at depth.

This represents a significant opportunity for De Grey with the immediate growth strategy linked to increasing gold resource, extending deposits, and making more Hemi-like discoveries close to established mining infrastructure in the region.

Hemi gold system


The Hemi system consists of three main deposit areas – Brolga, Aquila and Crow.

Large potential extensions to Aquila and Brolga have been identified from drilling with four rigs currently drilling extensional targets.

At Aquila, results include 33 metres at 1.5 g/t with the potential to extend the strike by 50% to more than 1,200 metres.

At Brolga, new extensions were recently reported with results from aircore drilling of 16 metres at 2.4 g/t with the southern extension currently around 1,000 metres long by about 200 metres wide and open.

Further aircore results are pending while more RC drilling is planned at both deposits.

At Crow deposit, the company is targeting an area up to 400 metres wide and 1,000 metres of strike with RC drilling planned and early-stage step-out drilling underway.

The company believes that further drilling will determine the scale of any future open pit mine which may have significant operating cost benefits.

Further drilling will determine the scale of any future open pit mine which may have significant operating cost benefits.

Brolga recoveries


Initial metallurgical test-work on Brolga mineralisation achieved recoveries of:

  • 96.3% from fresh rock using flotation, oxidation and carbon in leach (CIL); and
  • 93% in oxidised using CIL.

Results from a broader metallurgical test-work program are expected later in the current quarter.

Finding the next Hemi


De Grey has identified four lookalike mineralised intrusions within 10 kilometres of Hemi called Scooby, Antwerp, Shaggy and Alectroenas.

Two rigs are testing targets at Scooby and Antwerp and a detailed aeromagnetic survey has been completed over the prospective 30-kilometre zone.

Modelling, interpretation and a targeting study are well advanced and the company is now in the position to accelerate drill testing.

Regional intrusions


A total of eight known intrusions have been identified throughout the overall project area and seven are mineralised. Four of these are mineralised in the Hemi corridor.

Assay Results from RKDD015 and RKDD018 at Mawson

Key Points

  • LEG has announced assay results received from diamond drillholes RKDD015 and RKDD018 at Mawson;
  • We highlight the consistency of these results with those that gave rise to the original discovery hole (#7) and that otherwise occur proximal to the ongoing following massive sulphide intersections as follows;
  • RKDD018:
    • 19.2m @ 1.69% Ni, 1.23% Cu, 0.09% from 97.9m (incl. 4.5m @ 3.05% Ni, 2.32% Cu, 0.19% Co from 103.7m;
    • 34.65m @ 0.51% Ni, 0.35% Cu, 0.03% Co from 130.7m;
  • The grades contained in the above 4.5m intercept in hole 18 are the best seen to date at Mawson;
  • RKDD018 was designed to test the eastern extension of sulphide mineralisation in both the upper disseminated and lower massive sulphide intervals intersected in RKDD008;
  • Of particular note was the “leopard textures” encountered. Per the Voiseys Bay analogue, leopard textures are considered to indicate close proximity to an ultramafic intrusive source;
  • RKDD015:
    • 73.5m @ 0.32% Ni, 0.29% Cu, 0.02% Co from 87.5m;
    • 24.3m @ 0.22%, Ni 0.26% Cu, 0.02% Co from 279m;
  • RKDD015 was designed to test the northern extension of massive sulphide mineralisation in RKDD011 and the eastern extension of the upper sulphide zone in RKDD007;
  • LEG is progressing its 3,000m RC drilling programme over the next month;
  • We anticipate an extension of the program with further positive results and incorporation of diamond tails where warranted, with diamond drilling to follow in a success case;
  • The aircore anomalism continues to build in the eastern shadow of the main gravity feature;
  • We note substantial infill on the previous update, that is exhibiting a coherent cluster of geochem anomalism immediately adjacent to the main gravity features;
  • Furthermore, 2D modelling of these gravity features suggest densities consistent with mafic and ultramafic packages that to date appear to be possible sRead More – Source
