First Drilling At Blackdome-Elizabeth Since 2011
Tempus Resources Ltd (ASX:TMR) is preparing to commence drilling at the Blackdome- Elizabeth Gold Project, located in British Columbia, Canada – the first drilling programme that has been undertaken on the high grade, past producing project since 2011.
The planned programme will commence at Blackdome, consisting of an initial 2,500 metres of diamond drilling, focussed on verifying and expanding upon the existing high-grade historical NI43-101 Mineral Resource.
The programme at Blackdome will also include trenching and drilling over significant gold in soil anomalies to the northeast of the known Blackdome mineralisation, and resource definition drilling on a new mineralised vein discovered in the last drilling program at the Project.
Upon completion of the programme at Blackdome, the drilling equipment will then move to the Elizabeth sector of the Project, where an initial 6,000 metres of diamond drilling is planned, again focussed on verifying and expanding upon the existing high grade historical NI43-101 Mineral Resource.
Extensions to the known mineralisation at Elizabeth are being targeted along strike, supported by gold in soil anomalies, as well as at depth, seeking a similar extensive mesothermal vein hosted gold system to that seen at the nearby prolific Bralorne Gold Camp, which historically produced approximately 4.2 million high grade ounces.
Tempus has appointed British Columbia based Full Force Diamond Drilling Ltd to undertake the program. Full Force have conducted previous drilling programmes at Blackdome-Elizabeth, and as such are familiar with the Project. Full Force is planning to begin mobilising equipment to the Project within the next four weeks, once Tempus has received final approval for its Notice of Work for Blackdome, which is expected during the coming 2-3 weeks. Preparatory work at Blackdome, including installation of a camp and communications to support the busy field season ahead, is continuing.
