Barton Gold Holdings Limited (ASX: BGD) has commenced Phase 2 drilling at the Tunkillia Gold Project in South Australia.
The start-up follows completion of infill drilling at the high-grade Perseverance West gold zone and early stage test drilling at the School and Ealbara prospects at Tarcoola.
Prior Tunkillia Phase 1 drilling identified two new gold zones (223 North and Area 191) totalling ~1.5km of new mineralisation and also confirmed a higher-grade zone of mineralisation within the cornerstone 223 Deposit (26.1Mt @ 1.15 g/t Au for 965koz Au).
Phase 2 drilling will test Area 51 (~3km NW of the 223 Deposit) as a potential discovery target. The Company also expects to further test Areas 191 and 223 North.
“Phase 1 drilling confirmed our thesis for multiple mineralised satellites at the Tunkillia Project, with a ~60% growth in the project’s total gold mineralised strike,” Barton Managing Director, Alex Scanlon, said.
“We have only scratched the surface of the large-scale mineral potential at Tunkillia and will systematically evaluate priority targets with the objective of rapidly expanding Tunkillia’s mineral footprint. We believe the opportunity here to be far greater than previously known, including as we look down the shear zone.”
