Multiple Targets Identified In Pilbara Region Of WA
Rumble Resources Ltd’s (ASX: RTR) multiphase systematic exploration campaign has delineated 45 priority Cu-Au-Zn-Pb-Ag-V targets at the Braeside Project, located 129km east of Marble Bar in the East Pilbara Region of Western Australia.
The company says the target generation has highlighted the camp scale potential of the Braeside Project with five deposit types delineated that are all associated with a regional scale porphyry to epithermal system with over 60km of mineralised strike and up to 8km in width.
Rumble has now commenced a multi-rig drill programme which will consist of reverse circulation (RC) and diamond drilling (co-funded by EIS), testing a range of these high priority targets.
RC drilling will focus on near surface targets, and the diamond drilling will focus on deeper targets, to which will also assist with a better geological understanding of the system.
Five deposit types have been inferred by Rumble amongst the 45 targets the company has generated.
- 12 High Priority targetshave been identified where confidence highest based on exploration work
- completed. These are “drill ready”.
- 14 Medium Priority targets have been identified where confidence is moderate based on exploration work completed which may be considered for further drill testing or target definition.
- 19 Low Priority targets have been identified where confidence is low based on exploration work and requires additional targeting prior to drilling.
The multi-rig drill programme will consist of reverse circulation (RC) and diamond drilling.
Rumble has received EIS co-funding funding approval (A$150,000) for the diamond drilling program.
The company says it plans to drill a minimum of four high priority targets with the capability to drill further targets/metres.
