Expands RC Drilling Campaign At Gold Project
White Cliff Minerals Limited (ASX:WCN) has mobilised a second, and larger reverse circulation (RC) drill rig to the M20/446 permit, which is part of the company’s highly-prospective Reedy South Gold Project in Western Australia that hosts the Pegasus and King Cole prospects.
The revised programme will consist of ~4,500m of RC drilling by two rigs, with the smaller RC rig focusing on shallower (~60-80m) infill drillholes and testing strike extensions.
The larger rig, rated to 350m, will undertake an eight-hole programme aiming to target mineralisation at the Pegasus and King Cole prospects at depth. Concurrently with the drilling programme, White Cliff has completed a detailed geological mapping programme across M20/446.
The Project covers 272 sq. km of the highly prospective Cue goldfields, centred on the southern portion of the prolific Reedy Shear Zone, within the Meekatharra- Wydgee greenstone belt.
The Project comprises one granted mining lease (M20/446) covering the historic underground workings of Pegasus and King Cole, a granted exploration and prospecting license (E20/938 and P20/2289) and four exploration license applications (E20/969, E20/971, E20/972 and E20/974).
The Project is situated 40km north of Cue, via the Great Northern Highway and is 80km south of Meekatharra.
White Cliff declared a maiden MRE of 779,000 tonnes at 1.7 g/t Au for 42,400 ounces of gold. With the style and controls of mineralisation similar to the Triton-South Emu goldmine immediately north of the Project, White Cliff believe there is scope to substantially grow the resource at Reedy South through drilling at depth and along strike.
