Zones Of Primary Gold Mineralisation Stretches Over 450m Of Strike
Remaining assays from the recent RC drilling at Great Boulder Resources’ (ASX: GBR) Blue Poles discovery in Western Australia have confirmed the dip and strike of the deposit.
Managing Director, Andrew Paterson, said zones of primary gold mineralisation have now been confirmed over 450m of strike at Blue Poles as the result of Reverse Circulation (RC) within the Whiteheads Gold Project.
The zones are interpreted to dip approximately 75 degrees to the west, striking north-northwest parallel to local stratigraphy and magnetics. This interpretation also means some sections remain open to the west, with the full width of mineralisation to be confirmed in the next round of drilling.
Other intersections in drilling up to 500m further north are yet to be followed up. The Gunners prospect, a Blue Poles look-a-like anomaly approximately 1km further north, is now being tested with AC drilling.
“Blue Poles keeps getting better. The continuity and consistency of these drilling intersections is amazing,” Mr Paterson.
“We’re now planning another round of RC drilling to infill these areas where the sections are open to the west, and we’ll be using this information to test a west-dipping orientation on other gold intersections further north.
“The AC rig has just drilled the first holes across Gunners. We’re also drilling another target to the south. I’m looking forward to seeing how the Arsenal Trend develops as our programs unfold.”
