Consolidates Position At Underexplored Gold Project
Terrain Minerals Limited (ASX: TMX) has commenced drilling at its lightly explored Wild-viper Gold Project, north of Leanora in WA.
The current programme is for 1,000m of RC drilling programme, however, the company says it may be enlarged subject to Terrain geologist’s ground interpretation and observations over the two main target area
Target One: Drilling will concentrate on testing for mineralised extensions along the same geological structure that runs through the Great Western deposit (GW), Wild-viper and Wilson Patch (WP) targets. Terrain’s project review has identified a large untested zone which is possibly a large demagnetised structure that straddles over the western boundary of both Wilson Patch and Wild- viper.
Target Two: is located south of the historic Black Cat working that are situated over the tenement’s northern boundary. Drilling aims to follow up findings from recent soil sampling of elevated gold from sampling. Drilling will be testing for a possible parallel structure of Black Cat (refer to Diagram 2).
Terrain has only recently secured the mineral rights over WP. WP is situated in the middle of the Wild-viper project tenement package and long strike of the Great Western deposit.
Terrain believes that in securing the Wilson Patch tenement; the company now has consolidated package that really opens the exploration potential at the Wild-viper gold project and could be the missing piece to the Wild-viper puzzle. The tenement has been held in private hands for several decades.
Smokebush Gold Project: – The site preparation for drilling are now completed. The site is now ready for the commencement of Terrain’s maiden drill programme.
