Talk Title: Jericho Copper-Gold Discovery – what lurks beneath the deep blue sea

Jericho is a substantial copper-gold mineral system discovered under a Minotaur Exploration – OZ Minerals Joint Venture in late 2017. Located in the Cloncurry district of NW Queensland, it lies under 30-80m of cover and was discovered using EM geophysics. Of significance, Jericho lies within a district renown for magnetite-related IOCG deposits yet it has no magnetite. The implications of this are somewhat profound as it is essentially invisible in regional magnetics data and “lurks beneath a deep blue sea” of bland magnetic response (under cover). The presentation will highlight how it was discovered, talk about the key geological aspects of the system, and how some of these features may apply to South Australia.
