Mineral Exploration and the Art of Creating Shareholder Wealth: Moho Resources Limited (MOH)

Rooster Talk Episode 30: A Margaret River Series

Mineral Exploration More Buoyant than Before

Mineral Exploration is alive and well today as the equity markets have not been this buoyant since the 1980s. There have been segments where certain commodities would be hot but I have not seen anything like this on all levels of market capitalisations for a long time.

This is why I am excited to talk to Ralph Winter, Commercial Director of Moho Resources Limited (ASX: MOH). The methodological way in which the company is going about exploring the East Samson project gives some good indication that they know what they are doing, in regards to their exploration. Exploration is a long term play and it is exciting times for MOH.

If Moho Resources Limited can get some early production and become self-funding, it would be one of the few minnows in this sector that have achieved that goal.

About Moho Resources Limited

Moho Resources Limited (ASX: MOH) is a gold exploration company with projects in Western Australia and Queensland, Australia. They have three projects, Empress Springs in Queensland, Burracopin and Silver Swan North in Western Australia.

Silver Swan North

The Silver Swan North project is located about 50km northeast of the regional mining centre of Kalgoorlie in Western Australia. The project covers approximately km² and encompasses X granted tenements within the Kalgoorlie terrane. Moho believes that the Silver Swan North project area is considerably underexplored and highly prospective for gold and nickel mineralization. Moho will focus on shear hosted and porphyry related gold mineralization and identifying komatiite-hosted nickel sulphide deposits. The Silver Swan North project sits on the eastern flank of the Kanowna/Scotia dome within the Boorara domain. The regional Mount Monger-Moriarty fault runs through the middle of the project area, which effectively straddles two major tectonic domains, the Kurnalpi terrane to the east, and the Kalgoorlie terrane to the west.


The Burracoppin project is located within the Southwest terrane, the southwestern element of the Archean aged Yilgarn Craton in Western Australia. The project tenements consist of five granted exploration licenses and two exploration licenses under application covering approximately 480km². The Burracoppin project is located close to two regional shears and in particular on the aero-magnetic well defined north-south regional shear which is also associated with Tampia gold mine mineralization to the south. The operating Edna May mine is located approximately 22km east of the Burracoppin project area, in the Westonia Greenstone Belt.

Empress Springs

The Empress Springs Project is located 50 km to the south of the town of Croydon and comprises thirteen adjacent exploration permits with a total area of 2,889 km². The project is located about 25km due south of the town of Croydon and 700km west-northwest of Townsville in North Queensland. The Croydon Goldfield, which extends from north of the town, contained over 300 gold occurrences with historical production estimated at 1.2Moz of Au. The Empress Springs project is a joint venture with IGO Limited (IGO).

Moho considers Empress Springs has the potential to host large Tier 1 gold deposits due to the presence of the intersection of significant interpreted structures within the tenements, some of which penetrate down to the earth’s mantle and are potential fluid flow paths and traps for mineralization, mafic dyke swarms reflecting major melting episodes, and coherent gold, antimony and bismuth anomalies coincident with the regional structures and gravity anomalies.
