Aldoro Resources (ARN) is looking to increase the maiden drilling program underway at its Wyemandoo project in Western Australia given the results to date.

The drilling program kicked off in mid-May, and since then 26 reverse circulation drill holes have been completed across the Dome 1 and Dome 2 areas.

Drilling has been completed to depths of between 82 to 202 metres and according to ARN, most of the drill holes have intersected pegmatites over one to six metre intervals, with pegmatite-country rock zones up to 19 metres.

At Dome 1, drilling has confirmed the presence of a large and shallow pegmatite sill with continued shall intersections of up to six metres.

Given these results, the company is looking to use an aircore hammer drilling rig to further delineate the resource potential of Dome 1.

Over at Dome 2, drilling intersected zones of purple lepidolite (a lithium-rich mineral) as well as unconfirmed aluminosilicate which the company said could be a hydrothermal equivalent of spodumene.

The pegmatite zones vary from thin intercepts to over 12 metres.

Aldoro told investors today that the results are highly encouraging and it is now in the process of almost doubling the drilling program to 6000 metres with 3286 metres covered so far.

Moving forward drilling will test further domes and pegmatite outcrops.

Shares were trading grey at 13.5 cents at market close.
