The Duna Creek Pt-Cr prospect is located in a western tributary of Dimidi Creek, and is centred on a pegmatoid anorthosite dyke that contains an anomalous 88.2 ppb Pt and 0.54 % Cr. Ultramafic wall-rock to this dyke is also PGE-enriched, with an anomalous 30.3 ppb Pt. The extent of dyking is unknown at this early stage. Both lithologies are the first ultramafic rocks of the Papuan Ultramafic Belt to return anomalous PGE values and, given the reconnaissance nature of sampling to date, is considered to be extremely encouraging. Sampling has indicated the Awariobo Range complex to be PGE fertile. An average PGE content of 21 ppb Pt+Pd in unmineralized rocks compares with a global average of around 10 ppb.
