Maiden Drilling Programme To Commence At Nyngan Project
Kincora Copper Ltd (TSXV/ASX:KCC) has received further positive assay results from recent drilling at the Trundle Park prospect at the Trundle project located in the Macquarie Arc of the Lachlan Fold Belt (LFB) in NSW, Australia.
John Holliday, Technical Committee chair and Peter Leaman, Senior VP of Exploration said the results have extended skarn copper and gold mineralisation at the Trundle Park prospect
“Deeper drilling by Kincora at the Trundle Park prospect has resulted in significantly improved geological modelling, resulting in improved drill hole targeting and results,” the company representatives reported.
“The recent results have confirmed the targeted multiple phase intrusive system, interpreted to be driving the extensive skarn alteration. They also reaffirm the shallow higher copper and gold grade mineralisation system, which has more than 500 metres of strike and remains open.”
Trundle is the only brownfield porphyry project held by a listed junior in the LFB. Two rigs are currently operational at Trundle at the Mordialloc prospect.
Further drilling targeting the both the skarn mineralisation and causative intrusive finger porphyries is proposed at Trundle Park.
Drilling is currently ongoing at the northern Mordialloc prospect where prior explorer drilling did not effectively test the extensive porphyry system.
Having drilled a total of 15 holes at the Trundle Park prospect (assay results pending for two holes), current activities with two rigs continue at the Mordialloc prospect. Drilling at the Mordialloc prospect will take place at the Mordialloc, Mordialloc North East and Mordialloc South West targets (the latter previously known as Yarrabandi).
Drilling at Trundle Park has focused on testing the near surface skarn mineralisation and causative intrusive porphyry source, confirming Kincora’s working geological model.
Recent drilling has provided encouragement for the northern and southern extensions to the skarn alteration, extending the strike of the mineralised skarn footprint at Trundle Park to over 500 metres and still open in all directions.
A maiden drilling programme by Kincora is planned to commence in May at the Nyngan project as part of a minimum 17,000 metre drill programme in several project areas in the next 12 months.
