Progress statement for the Kalgoorlie study area - Steinway Prospect, Western Australia

Lintern, M.J. and Gray, D.J.

This progress statement summarizes the recent investigations undertaken at the Steinway deposit. Considerable effort has already been put into the investigation of this site by Narelle Gardiner as a University of Western Australia Bachelors degree Honours thesis entitled "Regolith Geology and Geochemistry of the Steinway Gold Prospect, Kalgoorlie, Western Australia" (Gardiner, 1993). One reason for investigating the Steinway site is the extraordinarily high Au content of the transported surficial material, which is strongly spatially related to the underlying mineralization. This is one of the few sites where a known apparent surface expression of mineralization exists and the surface is relatively undisturbed.

This is one of a number of similar studies in the Kalgoorlie-Kambalda region investigating whether there is a surface geochemical expression to gold mineralization concealed within or beneath sediments in palaeodrainages. Other sites that are, or have been, studied are Zuleika Sands (Ora Banda), Mulgarrie, Panglo (southern extension), Baseline, Lady Bountiful Extension, Kanowna QED, Kurnalpi, Enigma (Wollubar) and Argo.
