Echo Resources is an exploration and development Company focused on the Yandal Gold Project, which comprises over 1,600km2 of contiguous and highly prospective tenements in the world class yet underexplored Yandal greenstone gold belt in Western Australia.
The Yandal greenstone belt is one of Australia’s most prolific gold producing belts, hosting projects such as Jundee (Northern Star Resources), Wiluna (Blackham), Darlot (Goldfields) and Agnew (Goldfields).
The Project has existing Mineral Resources of 1.7 Million ounces and Ore Reserves of 856,000 ounces which Echo is confident it will continue to substantially expand through the application of modern exploration techniques which have never been applied in the region.
While the Yandal Gold Project has historically been subject to over 150,000 holes for over 4 million metres of drilling. However, much of this drilling was ineffective in its targeting as over 90% of the Yandal greenstone belt is disguised by transported cover making historical drilling blind. In addition most of this historical drilling did not reach the Archean rock which hosts gold mineralisation in the region. As a result the application of a sophisticated multi-disciplined approach combined with modern tools and techniques which have not been used in the area provides a significant opportunity for Echo to define new world class gold discoveries.
