In November 2016, Sheffield and Independence Group (IGO) formed a joint venture to explore five of Sheffield’s tenements in the Fraser Range region.
The tenements occur within the Proterozoic Fraser Complex which is part of the Albany-Fraser Orogenic Belt, located on the southeast margin of the Archaean Yilgarn Craton. Red Bull is the most advanced project and is located within 20km of IGO’s Nova-Bollinger nickel-copper deposit.
Oakover Copper-Manganese Project
The Oakover Copper-Manganese Project is Sheffield’s newest exploration project, targeting copper and manganese deposits in Archaean and Proterozoic-aged rocks of the Eastern Pilbara region of Western Australia. Sheffield has over 2,500 km2 of tenements under application, and two recently granted tenements covering about 570km2 within the Project and has begun detailed reviews of historical exploration data.
