Iceni Gold Limited (ASX: ICL) has provided an exploration update on the heritage survey status of its exploration campaign at the 14 Mile Well project in Australia.
The heritage survey successfully completed on-country for a number of targets within the 14 Mile Well tenement package, with the final report pending. Targets were heritage reviewed for planned drilling at multiple target areas.
“The successful completion of the heritage survey within the 14 Mile Well project is an important milestone for the exploration campaign. The recent survey, pending the final report, paves the way for drilling at targets within the Guyer, Everleigh, Claypan and Monument target areas, with the Breakaway target having been cleared for drilling by a previous heritage survey,” commented GM exploration David Nixon.
“Engaging with indigenous stakeholders and completing these surveys ensures the company is prepared for the next exploration drilling campaign. The reverse circulation (RC) drilling contracts are currently being finalized and are subject to board approval. Access tracks and earthworks for drill pads with sumps are currently being established.”
RC drilling programmes are proposed over the Guyer Well, Everleigh Well, Claypan and Monument target areas. Gold targets that have been recently heritage reviewed include Guyer (specifically Guyer North and Guyer NorthWest), Claypan, Monument North and a number of sites within the Everleigh Well target area (including the Embayment, High-Grade Vein and Christmas Gift targets).
The heritage survey to support planned drilling at the Breakaway target was completed earlier this year. Drilling at the Breakaway anomaly is planned to test coincident gold and lithium targets. A lithium anomaly identified within the Monument Granite displayed a strong association with Li-Cs-Be-Rb anomalism and it overlaps with the UFF Au and multi-element anomaly 14UF001Breakaway.
Further heritage surveys may be undertaken before the end of the year, subject to board approval, in preparation for proposed drilling at a number of other targets, including Hages Bore and Goose Well. Establishment of site access and drill pads is underway in anticipation of the planned drill programme.
