The Search for Julimar Begins with Venture Minerals Limited

Rooster Talk Episode 43 with Andrew Radonjic, Managing Director of Venture Minerals Limited (ASX:VMS)

Chalice Mining confirms a Julimar style mineralisation for JV Thor Project

In this episode of Rooster Talk, Andrew Radonjic shares some updates since our last Coffee with Samso - Julimar's Twin Brother - The Thor Project in April 2021. As we had discussed in this Coffee with Samso, the discovery of drill targets was always going to happen.

The unique nature of the drill and geophysical results that were generated by Venture Minerals Limited is strong evidence that fits a Julimar style mineralisation. The stage is set for the drill rigs of the project to see some rocks.

The project is actually sitting on a new frontier that is ripe for new discoveries which up till now has been neglected due to commodity pricing, funding and market appreciation of these areas.

Today, Andrew Radonjic shares with us:

  1. Update on the Thor project

  2. What the EM anomalies mean in terms of the prospectivity of the project

  3. Why Kulin fits in well with the Thor project

  4. Thor is not a nearology play but is made of real exploration results

About Venture Minerals Limited

Venture Minerals Limited (ASX: VMS) is entering an exciting phase as it looks to move from explorer to producer with production at the Riley Iron Ore Mine in northwest Tasmania. At the neighbouring Mount Lindsay TinTungsten Project, higher Tin prices and the recognition of Tin as a fundamental metal to the battery revolution have refocused Venture’s approach to developing Mount Lindsay. Already one of the world's largest undeveloped Tin-Tungsten deposits, the Company has commissioned an Underground Scoping Study on Mount Lindsay that will leverage off the previously completed feasibility work.

In Western Australia, Chalice Mining (ASX: CHN) recently committed to spending up to $3.7m in Venture’s South West Project, to advance the previous exploration completed by Venture to test a Julimar lookalike Nickel-Copper-PGE target.

At the Company’s Golden Grove North Project, it has already intersected up to 7% Zinc, 1.3% Copper and 2.1g/t Gold at Orcus and has identified several strong EM conductors currently being drill tested which are situated along the 5km long VMS (Volcanogenic Massive Sulfide) Target Zone, along strike to the world class Golden Grove Zinc-Copper-Gold Mine. Venture has recently completed a maiden drill program designed to bring forward a potential new gold discovery at the Kulin Project.
