Westar Resources Limited (ASX: WSR) has identified a number of targets for its upcoming drilling programme at the Gidgee North project in Western Australia.
Westar holds approximately 430 sq. km of tenue in the under explored north-western portion of the Gum Creek Greenstone Belt (GCGB). The GCGB is interpreted to form a large synclinal structure, with lithologies and structures hosting many of the prospects and resources on the eastern limb repeated in Westar’s tenure in the western limb.
Westar’s extensive datasets have been used to generate and refine numerous gold and copper-zinc targets in the southern portion of the tenure that will be drill-tested in March with a maiden aircore programme.
Westar is also progressing geochemical sampling and mapping on northern targets to progress a pipeline of targets for drill testing in conjunction with drilling at the recently acquired Fairy Well Prospect in H2CY23.
“Given the historical production plus the current Mineral Resource inventory in the GCGB, this is a rare opportunity to drill test an extensive strike of prospective greenstone terrain that has never seen a drill- hole,” Managing Director, Karl Jupp, said.
“We know the lithologies are right, the structures are permissive and the targets have been systematically worked up using best-practice geoscience and an extensive knowledge of the GCGB minerals systems architecture.”
Westar has progressed target definition and ranking of priority prospects at the Gidgee North project, focusing on prospects south of the rabbit proof fence (SRPF), and is preparing to commence a circa 6,000m aircore drilling program in early to mid-March. All approvals are in place and drilling contractor secured. Drilling targets have been generated both in-house and with the assistance of specialist consultants using Westar’s extensive geochemical, geophysical, spectral and mapping datasets.
In addition to targeting and drilling activities SRPF, Westar has progressed geochemical sampling on priority targets identified north of the rabbit proof fence (NRPF). This will progress a pipeline of ranked targets to be drill tested in conjunction with planned drilling at the recently acquired Fairy Well Prospect1 in H2CY23.
