RC and diamond drilling conducted during 2017 and 2018 confirmed extensive copper mineralisation extending to depths in excess of 300m. Diamond drilling during 2018 also discovered significant intervals of visible coarse-grained chalcopyrite, pyrite and pyrrhotite mineralisation: – 18.7m @ 1.12% Cu from 328m; – within a broader zone of 292m @ 0.22% Cu from 148m.
Recent 3D MIMDAS IP geophysical modelling indicates that a large copper target lies at depth and immediately south of the 2018 diamond drilling. The geophysical modelling also indicates a close correlation between the copper grades observed down hole and the chargeability response levels. Delineation and definition drilling has only just commenced.
Drilling planned for 2021 will target the central, expected high grade core of the chargeability and resistivity anomaly with four diamond core holes up to 800m depth, for a total of 2,000m of drilling.
