Title: Independent technical report for Angkor Wat minerals limited on Cambodia and Indonesian exploration projects
Date: 2009
Publisher: Earth Work Exploration Projects
Notes: Summary: This technical report presents information on four exploration projects currently being undertaken by Angkor Wat Minerals Ltd. (AWM) in Cambodia and Indonesia. The principal features of these projects are as follows: Porphyry Creek – a copper / gold project located in Preah Vihear Province, approximately 290km north of Phnom Penh, Cambodia. Mineralisation hosted in Diorite. Exploration work to date suggests intrusive related vein style mineralisation. Recent work demonstrates that the geology may be amenable to the discovery of a significant copper / gold deposit. An AWM 2008 program demonstrated along strike continuity of mineralisation over several hundred metres, and high localised copper grades. Gold grades also appear to increase down dip. Senator Project – Located approximately 260km north of Phnom Penh, Cambodia and just south of Porphyry Creek. Site of the historic Phnum Lung gold mine. Potential for hosting eluvial and hardrock gold resources that might be amenable to both opencast and underground extraction. Anecdotal historic gold grades range 7.1 – 100.0g/t. Angkor Wat Project – Located immediately adjacent to the Senator Project area. Has a history of small-scale gold mining. Has considerable potential for hosting eluvial and hardrock gold resources similar to those found at Senator. Buntok Zircon Project – Located in south Kalimantan, Indonesia. Heavy mineral suite hosted in very large quartz sand deposit. Long history of artisanal mining of both zircon and alluvial gold. Significant potential for large scale mineral sands type project primarily targeting zircon and gold. May be some potential for extracting other heavy minerals including illmenite and rutile.
