Thalanga

Overview

Red River holds ~600km2 of exploration tenements in the highly prospective Cambro-Ordovician Mt Windsor Volcanic Belt located in Northern Queensland.

The Mt Windsor Volcanic Belt is about 165km long and up to 10km wide and host a number of polymetallic base metal deposits at the contact between the Mt Windsor Volcanics and the Trooper Creek Formation (Thalanga) and also in the Trooper Creek Formation (Liontown).
