Kincora Copper Limited’s (TSXV & ASX:KCC) most recent drill hole at the Trundle Park prospect in NSW has intersected multiple skarn horizons and broad intervals of porphyry style intrusions.
“The wedge off and extension from hole TRDD014 has intersected the targeted monzonite system intruding a larger monzodiorite body with zones of interpreted variable to strongly developed outer potassic alteration,” John Holliday, Technical Committee chair, and Peter Leaman, VP of Exploration, said.
“This setting was generally not apparent in the original TRDD014 hole and has returned larger interpreted zones of “red” monzonite and monzodiorite intrusions than TRDD022. TRDD014W1 has provided significant strike and depth extension from TRDD022, and depth extension from TRDD014.
“These are encouraging signs, however, we have still not yet intersected the systems core. Our drilling has demonstrated a significant size and multiple intrusive system is present with the features suggestive of being in a proximal environment to a target that offers clear scale potential. From here, only further systematic drilling will confirm or downgrade this target.
“A recently commenced follow up hole is being drilled west from and parallel to TRDD014, testing south of TRDD022, and west of both TRDD014W1 and TRDD001. A clear intrusive porphyry system target zone is emerging at the Trundle Park prospect with the south remaining open for further drilling.”
Two diamond rigs remain operational, one currently drilling TRDD028 at the Trundle Park prospect at Trundle, and the other completing a fifth hole and final of the first phase diamond drilling programme at the Gateway prospect at the Fairholme project, with assay results from recent drilling pending.
Trundle Park prospect
Recent drilling at the Trundle Park prospect has confirmed a significant area and multiple intrusive porphyry system with a mineralised zone emerging.
Hole TRDD022 returned 162m @ 0.25 g/t gold, 0.04% copper and 9 ppm molybdenum (from 670m), including 46m @ 0.54 g/t gold and 0.08% copper (from 684m) and 18m @ 0.75 g/t gold and 0.09% copper (from 712m).
This hole was followed up by TRDD026, a scissor hole expanding the system to the NNW with two distinct zones of the targeted monzonite intrusion with a larger monzodiorite system.
A wedge drilling off the previous hole TRDD014 (namely TRDD014W1) sought to test the vertical extent of the main mineralised zone in TRDD022 down dip and on strike to the SSE, and to depth and horizontally towards the NNW from TRDD014 (65.5m @ 0.25 g/t gold and 0.04% copper, including 10m @ 0.73 g/t gold and 0.1% copper).
While testing the intrusive target at depth under TRDD022 the wedge and extension (TRDD014W1) has intersected the targeted monzonite vein-dyke system intruding a larger monzodiorite intrusion with zones of interpreted variable to strongly developed outer potassic alteration. This setting was generally not apparent in the original TRDD014 hole and has returned larger interpreted zones of “red” monzonite and monzodiorite intrusions than TRDD022. TRDD014W1 has provided significant strike and depth extension from TRDD022, and depth extension from TRDD014.
