Exploration by Sylvania Resources Limited within Australia has been focused on the Archean Sylvania Inlier, situated in Western Australia. Within this area the Company still retains mineral exploration projects known as Copper Knob and Jimblebar. The projects lie east and south of Newman and are located within the Peak Hill Mineral Field. Exploration on these tenements has targeted gold, copper-zinc, nickel and platinum group element mineralization.

1. JIMBLEBAR COPPER/GOLD (45 kms east south east of Newman; Sylvania 80% P52/869 & MLA52/739, Sylvania 100% others)

The Jimblebar tenements lie immediately south east of the currently operating Jimblebar iron ore mine. Sylvania’s interests now relate to two prospecting licences, with one of the latter associated with a mining lease application, covering an area of approximately 200 hectares.

The main area of interest for copper in the Jimblebar tenements is a prospective sequence of metamorphosed felsic and intermediate volcanics containing magnetite outcrops as well as several occurrences of outcropping secondary copper mineralization.

No field work was undertaken by the Company during the quarter.

2. COPPER KNOB (42 kms east south east of Newman; Sylvania 100%)

The Mining Lease 52/211 at Copper Knob, covers a very large body of disseminated low grade sulphide copper mineralization with some gold values that has been drilled by previous explorers. This mineralization lies within a sequence of felsic and intermediate volcanic rocks that extend for over 9 kilometres forming the Jimblebar copper area. The Copper Knob mining lease has untested potential for an oxide copper resource and for discrete massive copper bearing sulphide bodies.

No field work was undertaken by the Company during the quarter.
