The primary objective of this project is to detennine the principal geological and geochemical factors that control the location and development of base metal and gold mineralisation in the Mount Windsor Volcanics. The successful completion of this project will result in the development of a geologica1/geochemical model to assist in the formulation of new exploration criteria which will enhance the chances of discovery of further ore deposits in the region.

Agreement to undertake this geological research project was reached between the Panfin JV partners (Pancontinental
Mining and Outokumpu) and the University of Tasmania in January 1989. This initial report covers results of the first eight months research on the Mt Windsor Volcanic belt to September 1989. Progress to date has been excellent, with the following aspects covered:
* Joe Stolz has undertaken a comprehensive study of the stratigraphy, petrography and geochemistry of the Mt
Windsor Volcanic belt along a series of traverses across the sequence-
Waddy's Mill
Thalanga rail cutting and mine area
Trafalgar Bore
Mt Windsor-East Gydgie
Troopers Creek
Sunrise Spur-Brittania
* Ron Berry has undertaken a regional structural assessment of the belt concentrating on the western and central sector utilising some of the traverses covered in the volcanic study.
* David Huston has carried out a preliminary study on the occurrence of gold in the Thalanga ore body.
• The Panfin base maps and a preliminary geological interpretation have been digitised in the ARCINFO computer
system in preparation for more detailed studies on the relationship between volcanic stratigraphy, structure,
magnetics, alteration and mineralisation throughout the belt.
Thanks are extended to the Panfin JV project geologists: Kari Airas, Mel Jones, Colin Kendall, Urpo Kuronen, Russell
Meares, Andy Purvis and Brad Wake for their assistance throughout the course of this research program.
