Hi. I’m here to introduce Jon Hronsky, who’s our Senior exploration advisor at Future Metals. We’re really putting together this technical presentation on the back of the recent announcement confirming that we do have magmatic nickel-copper-pge-sulphides at Panton underneath the existing reef and also run through the results of our geophysical modelling of Panton there too. So I’ll throw to Jon now to go through what will be quite a technical presentation but one that I think will provide a lot of value for our investors.
Well thanks, Jardee. it’s great to be here and to talk about the Panton today just a bit on my background for anyone watching the video, I’ve actually been involved with this style of ore deposit what we call orthomagmatic, nickel, copper, PGE sulphides for about 30 years now.
So I have been fortunate enough to see these things on about six continents and develop a bit of an understanding of how it all fits together at the same time. You know, since Panton was first discovered in the 1970s, we have learned a lot more about this style of mineralization and seen how all the components fit together into a general model.
And I guess that’s really the main theme of what I want to show to you today. What this slide shows is it is a summary of what we think are the absolute key elements as to why we think Panton has this interesting potential beyond what’s been known for a long time. The starting point is it does host a significant PGE resource.
In fact, until the discovery of Julimar the most significant one known in Australia, the really interesting thing is that we now understand that an intrusion which hosts this much reef style mineralization may very much be prospective for classic basal contact magmatic sulfide mineralization, something that’s never been looked at before. And importantly, the place where we would go and look for that sort of mineralization in the intrusion is a place that’s never been tested before, never been drilled at Panton, and that’s the keel position.
Now, this is not just hypothetical anymore because as Jardee has said, we’ve just found some magmatic sulfides in some of our drilling. So we’ve confirmed that they actually exist. But secondly, we’ve done some really good, innovative geophysical modelling.
