Abstract

Truong Le studied the Tick Hill gold deposit near Mt Isa. He found that the gold was deposited in two stages, around 1780 and 1520 million years ago. The mineralisation style is unique to the Mt Isa Block, but resembles gold mineralisation in the Tennant Creek area. Truong Le has provided a new exploration model for high-grade gold in NW Queensland which will be of benefit to the mineral exploration industry.
