The Dampier Project comprises Sheffield's flagship Thunderbird Project as well as a number of newly discovered mineral sands prospects.
Regional drilling is targeting mineralisation along strike from and proximal to the Thunderbird Project. Thunderbird is the first significant heavy mineral sand deposit to be discovered in the Canning Basin, and limited exploration drilling to date by Sheffield has results in the discovery of four new mineral sands prospects: Night Train, Nomad, Argo and Seagull.
The discovery rate highlights the potential for the Canning Basis to become a significant new mineral sands province. Night Train is located 20km southeast of Thunderbird and is within 2km of the proposed Thunderbird Access Road and considered the most significant of these additional prospects discovered to date.
