An exploration tenement in the Great Sandy Desert for graphite. It is unclear why the exploration company has called the project 'Copper Hills' when it has nothing to do with copper, or appears from their map near the existing Copper Hills Mindat locality. This in turn was a colloquial name given to the area by another exploration company. The map if accurate shows a sea of sand-dunes, somewhere east of Telfer.
Venus Metals Corporation Ltd has been drilling this area for graphite. It names Black Forest and PM as prospects. Described as several intersections of sulphidic graphitic schist with up to 30% visual graphite. Aerial surveys identified graphite/sulphide layers with tremolite gneiss. At the time of writing 10 holes had been drilled with graphite grades ranging from 2.72-6.15 CG%.
