Following Up High-Grade Area D Discovery
Chesser Resources Limited(ASX:CHZ) has commenced a major drilling campaign at its Diamba Sud project following the end of the wet season in Senegal.
The programme has a scope of works is for ~5,000m of diamond (DD) and ~15,000m of reverse circulation (RC) drilling.
The programme will initially focus on further exploration of the recent shallow, high grade Area D discovery at depth and along strike, with prior results including 48m at 6.70g/t gold and 55m at 4.27 g/t gold.
Managing Director and CEO, Mike Brown, saidthe company is also expecting to conduct initial exploration traverses on Area H and the Western Splay. Both are greenfield targets and display strong geochemical and geophysical anomalies.
“We are delighted to have recommenced drilling at Diamba Sud so early in the field season, following a heavy and extended wet season,” Mr Brown said.
“This programme will double the total metres of drilling undertaken to date on the licence, where two discoveries have already been made by the company.
“Diamond drilling will assist us in understanding of the controls and potential depth extensions of the high-grade gold system at Area D into fresh rock, with exploratory RC drilling designed to test extensions of the mineralisation footprint at both Area D and Area A. “Both discoveries are near surface, allowing us to quickly and efficiently test both systems. We look forward to sharing regular progress updates as we continue to advance with this large-scale drill programme.”
