Moho Resources Ltd (ASX:MOH) has commenced its maiden aircore drill programme on the Crossroads prospect at the Burracoppin gold project, located 22 km west of the Edna May gold mine in Western Australia.
Managing Director, Shane Sadleir, said that up to 40 reconnaissance air core holes will be drilled across and along the Crossroads anomaly.
The programme will test targets up to 300m wide incorporating the auger gold and arsenic anomalies and the re- evaluated EM anomaly.
The EM anomaly was identified from the airborne EM survey flown for Moho in November 2018 to search for base metal mineralisation. The anomaly was initially viewed as being related to a regolith feature but is considered worthy of further investigation due to its proximity to the highest arsenic value at the Crossroads Prospect.
Mr Sadleir said Moho believes that the auger arsenic anomaly could be related to sulphide mineralisation in the underlying bedrock. The auger sampling has already confirmed a spatial relationship between gold and arsenic anomalism at Crossroads.
“Moho is prioritising its resources on gold projects which we believe may have the best chance of being mined profitably in the short to medium term,” Mr Sadleir said.
“Given the proximity of the Burracoppin Project to gold processing facilities at Edna May and Marvel Loch, we are looking forward to receiving the results from the maiden aircore drill programme at the Crossroads prospect.”
Mr Sadleir said further aircore and possibly deeper RC drilling at Crossroads prospect could follow, depending on assay results from the current air core drill programme.
At the same time Auger drilling may be undertaken within the POW approved area to extend the Crossroads anomaly.
