Bardoc Gold (BDC) said a decision to expand drilling at its flagship project has already begun reaping reward, with significant new results found.
The gold miner’s flagship Bardoc Gold Project in located near Kalgoorlie in WA, with recent drilling at the site focusing on the Project’s Zoroastrian deposit.
Specifically, the company has been drilling Blueys Lode, located within the deposit, testing for any shoots outside the current Resource envelope.
Bardoc said it didn’t have to wait long to find success — with the first hole finding a shoot around 600 metres north of the planned underground mine.
Results from that first hole include 11 metres at 4.69g/t gold from 237 metres, including six metres at 6.78g/t gold from 239 metres.
In addition to expanding the deposit’s potential, in-fill drilling at Zoroastrian also returned best results of 34 metres at 2.51g/t gold from 81 metres, including 12 metres at 4.11g/t gold from 100 metres.
These results exceeded the company’s expectations and Bardoc Gold’s Chief Executive Officer Robert Ryan said more drilling is now being planned.
“Further drilling is now planned to target the Blueys lode at depth and along strike,” he explained.
The company also said exploration drilling was continuing at the Aphrodite Sigma Lode, North Kanowna Star and within the Zoroastrian-Excelsior corridor, with geotechnical drilling underway at the Aphrodite Alpha Pit.
While assays are still pending on the other half of the current drilling program at Bluey’s which found the high-grade extension.
Shares in Bardoc Gold are trading for 7.7 cents each, up 2.67 per cent at the close of market.
