[Westmoreland core]
Westmoreland presentation & drill core.   On arrival in Mount Isa, the group spent the rest of the day at Laramide / Lagoon Creek Resources' base.   After a presentation and discussion over plans, sections and images led by one of the company's geologists, Rhys Davies (third from left in top right image), the group was shown core from a selection of drill holes (left image).   These were laid out in order across a section cutting the deposits, illustrating the host succession, the zonation and styles of mineralisation, as well as the relationship to intrusives and volcanic members.   The group was able to study the core in detail and discuss it among themselves and with their host (lower centre image).
