How ANT is changing the game for porphyry copper exploration: Duck Creek Project, Macquarie Arc

An Ambient Noise Tomography (ANT) survey was conducted in the Duck Creek Project area, north of Nyngan in the northern part of the Macquarie Arc to explore for porphyry-related copper-gold mineralisation deposits. The area has approximately 400m of post-mineral cover and regional aeromagnetic and drill data has highlighted zones of porphyry-style alteration. The

goal of the ANT survey was to provide a 3D image of the basement rocks down to at least 1.5 km depth and identify deep intrusions and alteration zones associated with porphyry-style

The survey delivered great results which will be discussed during this presentation, including an unknown northeast trending low velocity zone that contains several areas of interest for further
analysis. This includes at least two high velocity bodies at 1.2 km depth that could represent intrusions, and an intriguing “donut” feature.

Stephen Barber

Stephen joined Fleet Space Technologies in July 2023 as a Geological Client Manager to expand on his 30+ years’ experience working as a mining, exploration and consultant Geologist. He has worked on lithium, gold, copper, nickel, mine water, and coal projects in Australia, New Zealand, Canada, Saudi Arabia, Pakistan, and Indonesia. Qualified Geologist from the University of Queensland (1988-91), he also completed a mining business and management course at the University of Western Australia in 2022. His technical skills as a Geologist extend from fieldwork to interpreting geological features and structures, and mineralisation processes through to drill hole planning and interpretation, creating 3D seismic velocity and geological models, resource estimation work (JORC compliant), and public reporting.

Fleet Space Technologies
Fleet builds space-enabled technology to solve global challenges and empower humanity’s exploration. We specialise in seismic exploration, edge computing, and have a constellation of satellites to deliver near real time results to our community of explorers. Pioneering the world’s first satellite-enabled geophysical sensor, our mineral exploration technology – ExoSphere by Fleet® – is accelerating global critical mineral exploration by delivering 3D subsurface models in days – radically reducing the time and resources needed to locate potential deposits with near-zero environmental impact.
