A TEMPEST airborne fixed wing Time Domain Electromagnetic (TDEM) and magnetic survey was flown over the Nuqrah – Mardah project area of central Saudi Arabia for Ma’aden Gold and Base Metals. The Nuqrah massive-sulphide sedex deposit is located within graphite schist and carbonates near the top of the pyroclastic Halaban formation. The survey has identified known mineral occurrences, and located new mineral targets. The north and south zones of the Nuqrah Deposit have been imaged, and further drilling may be indicated at Nuqrah North based on a strike length interpreted from CDI profiles of 1.6 km.
