Barisan Porphyry Belt

Bahu Porphyry Cu-Au Prospect

This prospect is located approximately 10 km southeast of Abong and 3.5 km north of Upper Ise Ise. Work undertaken by East Asia Minerals, to follow-up encouraging results by previous explorers, has consisted of geological mapping, rock-chip and channel sampling and a ground magnetic survey. This work has outlined a large area (2.3 km x 1 km) of alteration of diorite porphyry and enclosing sediments. Alteration consists of quartz-sericite-pyrite±illite overprinted by structurally controlled advanced argillic and argillic styles. Quartz-pyrite veins and stockworks are present and likely host the moderate grades of gold mineralization that have been identified from rock and channel sampling; 46 m at 0.72 g/t Au and 268 ppm Cu, and 30 m at 0.71 % Au and 341 ppm Cu being some better examples.
