Hornet is located 2km west of Twin Hills Mine. To date the exploration conducted at Hornet consists of 314 drill holes with a total drilled depth of 10,994.6m, dating back from 1970 to present. The Hornet Project is located within the Western Tectonic Corridor (WTC).
The interpretation of the WTC has been reported as a series of NNW-SSE trending shear zones intersected by north-south orientated structures, with the potential for precious and base metals mineralization to exist along and at the intersections of these features.
Drilling results reported in January of 2012 delivered down dip extensions of the copper mineralization that had been previously identified from past exploration. The Hornet mineralised zone exceeds 140m in strike and has been extended 200m down dip, consisting of five interpreted copper shoots, up to 5m in true width. Base metal mineralisation has also been identified in the north-east corner known as ‘Hornet North’.
