INTERVIEW WITH MR. IAN BAMBOROUGH, MANAGING DIRECTOR OF TERRITORY URANIUM COMPANY LIMITED (TUC)
“Calvert River Exploration Results”
TUESDAY, OCTOBER 7, 2008, 10:00 AM.
BRR Today on Boardroom Radio, we’re joined by Mr. Ian Bamborough, the Managing Director of Territory Uranium.
Ian, thanks for joining us on Boardroom Radio.
TUC Yes. Thank you very much, Joel.
BRR Now, since this is Territory Uranium’s first Boardroom Radio interview, can
15 we start by you giving our listeners a brief overview of Territory Uranium and some of its key projects?
TUC I guess the company is based entirely in the NT which planted in April 2007 by what I would term a team of seasoned industry professionals who put an excellent when package together. We currently hold 26,300 km of tenements
20 across a number of different project areas. I guess our primary focus is exploring for uranium. We also, I guess, having land across different geological terrains do have the opportunity to explore for other commodities. Again, our focus is, in terms of our projects at the moment would be the Daly River region for uranium. The Calvert Project, which has been the focus of a
25 recent ASX announcement, and I guess also an emerging interest in the Tennant Creek region from both the phosphate and copper-gold prospective.
BRR Looking at yesterday’s announcement, you’ve released some very encouraging gold and base metal results from your Calvert River Project.
30 What sort of work have you been doing up there and what are some of the key findings, so far?
TUC The Calvert River work was really is a follow up on some on it as of yet unexplained, broader scale of stream sediment anomalies obtained by one of the managers a few years back and that I believe the managers may have
35 had a different hurdle rights on some of these projects, but for a junior explorer, it offered as an excellent opportunity. I guess as the result of that we followed upon on these results with some more detailed geochemistry to really try and tie down those results to some more specific areas. This time, the team is also aided by a hyperspectral scanning (inaudible) which
40 we’ve recently done this. That’s basically satellite imagery from a plane looking at alteration patterns. There’s a result that’s work, we identified there a number of cross-elemental geochemical anomalies which include 953 parts per million zinc, 31 parts per billion gold and that these specifically correspond to some localized geological features which, you know, I guess
45 look very interesting. The gold drill result is significant but unusual and we have confirmed this result with the second anomalous of this stream sediment from this location whether in prospective I do know of some global gold deposits which have been found with a lot less in similar covered terrain. Now, we’re pretty pleased with the results.
BRR Your announcement makes a number of references to the circular features making up the mineralisation of the project. What’s the significance of this, Ian?
5 TUC Yes, I guess the Calvert River areas known for a number of mineralised systems and one of those (inaudible) the high grade Redbank copper oxide mine and the copper oxide on this location is hosted in a number of these circular pipe-like features of structures known as breccia pipes. I guess the image in the recent announcement (inaudible) really highlights some
10 of the circular features and also silica alteration features which we think that some say if we don’t have (inaudible) I guess very similar geology to what we know elsewhere in the district.
BRR Finally, what further work are you planning on the back of these results to get
15 a better picture of the project?
TUC Yes, I guess the teams out in the field now strikes away but we’ll basically going back to the, you know, I guess the localized 2 km areas that we’ve identified and doing a number of things from a soil geochemistry to ground magnetics to try and tie down some of the features which will eventually, after
20 we drill test it. In addition to these, we’re investigating a number of nearly identified features which we picked up from hyperspectral scanning probably about 30 km, 40 km to the southeast of this particular pipes where we’ve got the results and which we think more closely showed the geological setting of the Redbank’s copper deposits, the Redbank’s (inaudible) deposits in
25 some 60 km to the south on the same geological trend. So I guess not just following up on what we’ve got but you know, we’re hoping for the new Greenfield’s success in our tenement.
BRR Ian, thank you very much for your time today and thanks for talking to
30 Boardroom Radio.
TUC Thank you very much, Joel.
