Doup is considered a carbonate (or calcareous shale) hosted strata-bound epithermal replacement deposit. Its geological setting is a challenge. Existing gold resources of 1.37Moz
make the deposit a very attractive inventory but it is not a simple mine to bring into development.
The complex metallurgical system hosts a weak Au-Cu porphyry signature with an ISE (Au-Ag-Te) overprint at Panang while Benteng mineralization is more Au-Ag-Te with As-Zn in a carbonate setting. Potential to add resources occur at North Benteng, the Link Zone and at SE Panang while satellites exist at South Benteng and Tungow.
Generative work on district targets is ongoing and there is much discussion about a porphyry core.
