Maiden Programme Underway At Hasties Prospect
Rincon Resources Limited (ASX:RCR) ) has commenced drilling at its wholly owned South Telfer Gold-Copper Project located in the Paterson Province, Western Australia.
The Project is located just 12km south of the 32Moz Telfer Gold Mine in the Pilbara.
The Ccmpany’s maiden 5,000m Phase 1 RC drilling at the Hasties Prospect, is targeting Telfer (reef/stockwork) and Havieron (breccia) style mineralisation, aims to achieve the following initial outcomes:
▪ Test an interpreted south-eastern plunge to existing mineralisation;
▪ Validate zones of gold and copper mineralisation from historic drilling; and
▪ Collection suitable material for preliminary metallurgical test work.
Rincon CEO, Gary Harvey, said results and technical information collected from Phase 1 will primarily be used to lay the groundwork for a maiden mineral resource estimation. Extensional drilling will aim to expand the size and scale of the mineralised system at Hasties Prospect. Phase 1 drilling is expected to take 3-4 weeks with a further 4-5 weeks post drilling for the receipt of assays.
“We’re very pleased to have commenced our maiden 5,000m RC drilling programme at the South Telfer Gold-Copper Project,” Mr Harvey said.
“This is the first of two significant drilling programmes we have planned for the Hasties Prospect this year and we expect this programme to take 3-4 weeks. We are also in the process of seeking approval for a Phase 2 RC and diamond drilling programme over the Hasties Prospect, scheduled to commence in October, and preparing to commence a soil sampling programme over the Westin Prospect area 35km south-east of the Telfer Gold Mine.”
