AIC Mines Limited announced that it has commenced initial field work at its Lamil Gold-Copper Project in the Paterson Province in East Pilbara in Western Australia. The Lamil Project is a conceptual exploration project with a previously unrecognised and untested Telfer look alike domal aeromagnetic signature. The project secures an area of 1,375km2 and is located midway between the world class Telfer Gold-Copper mine, located just 30 kilometres to the northeast, and the Nifty Copper mine to the immediate west. An ultra-detailed airborne magnetic survey completed earlier in the year by joint venture partner Rumble Resources highlighted several anomalies including a major domal structure which has many important similarities to Telfer. Recent geophysical work indicates that the target area has a maximum depth of cover of only 100m. The basement sequences of interest were previously believed to have been obscured beneath much deeper cover and as a result the area has remained essentially unexplored. None of the targets identified have been previously drilled.

Following the receipt of land access approvals, AIC has now commenced its initial phase of field work including
Ground based gravity surveys
Ground-based passive seismic surveys
Geochemical orientation surveys

The principal aims of this work are to refine the depth to basement models and the regional structural interpretation of the target areas, and to determine the effectiveness of surface geochemical techniques over the target areas. The information from these surveys will be integrated with the existing ultra-detailed airborne magnetic data to better map the possible source structures for gold and copper mineralisation and to ultimately guide targeting of future exploration drilling programs.
