Avonlea Minerals Limited is an Australian publicly listed company (ASX: AVZ) based in Perth, Western Australia. The Company operates with a priority exploration focus in Namibia, south-west Africa.

The exploration undertaken was focussed on granted iron ore prospects has culminated in the delineation of a very large scale Exploration Target at three key prospects; Hammerhead; Thresher and Ondjou.

While not a JORC compliant Resource it does serve to confirm the potential Avonlea sees in this region and why we actively have pursued these large scale, iron ore opportunities. Throughout, the Company has sought to build on the strategy to identify scalable, high quality magnetite iron ore opportunities and during the year, applied for four additional licence areas in close proximity to these original Prospects. The smallest of these new licence areas has been granted and drilling has recently completed on the newly identified Ondjou Prospect (‘elephant’ in the local Himba dialect).

This drilling program is anticipated to enable the Company to deliver an Inferred Resource prior to the end of the calendar year (2010) and should further build on the Company’s earlier activities and resultant successful outcomes. As the potential of Avonlea’s Fe interests continues to emerge, activity is expected to intensify with the grant of the additional Fe licences which in combination with the potential for a Resource, we trust will then begin to properly reward all stakeholders with a more representative Enterprise Value for these iron ore interests.

In addition, the Company’s base metal licences (through local subsidiaries) have been redefined. These areas were systematically and independently reviewed and reduced in size, to ensure greater focus on those areas that exhibited the greatest potential for near term base metal exploration success on the grant of the licences and in a similar manner; focused exploration programs will be instigated.
