Western Australian gold explorer BMG Resources Limited (ASX: BMG) has commenced the next phase of drilling at the company’s 100% owned Abercromby Gold Project in the north-eastern goldfields of WA, following the recent completion of highly successful diamond and aircore programmes.
This programme encompasses some 11,500m of planned drilling over the next 10 weeks, with diamond drilling (DD) at the Capital Prospect to comprise c.4,000m, and aircore drilling (AC) to the south estimated at c.7,500m.
The DD programme is aimed at resource definition and extension holes, including a 650m replacement for 21ABDD004 which suffered terminal drill rod failure at 360m, prior to the targeted depth to test the extension of the West Lode.
The AC drilling will target the three large gold anomalies identified by the recent sub-audio magnetics and aircore drilling, in the southern extension of the mineralisation at Abercromby.
This follows the completion of RC, DD and AC drilling at Abercromby in recent weeks.
“We’re very excited by the success or our recent drilling at Abercromby, as it has paved the way for this rapid follow-up campaign,” Managing Director Bruce McCracken said.
“These programmes will continue to delineate the significant high-grade orebody at Capital as we progress towards maiden resource definition, and test the large gold anomalies to the south identified by recent SAM and aircore drilling.
“We look forward to updating investors as our drilling progress continues and results come to hand.”
The company has engaged Australian Air Core Pty Ltd (AAC) to undertake the AC program and Boart Longyear to undertake the DD program.
An AAC rig mobilised to site this week and has commenced AC drilling, which is expected to take around three weeks to complete. Boart Longyear is scheduled to be onsite next week, with the DD programme anticipated to take around 10 weeks to complete.
