- Bardoc Gold (BDC) has received excellent results from resource definition drilling at the Aphrodite Deposit within its WA-based namesake project
- Drilling targeted shallow supergene mineralisation in the Sigma Lode and not only confirmed this, but identified significant widths and grades as well
- The results have shown the growth potential in the under-explored Sigma Lode and the potential to grow the current open pit ore reserve
- Aircore drilling continues at Aphrodite and will also target the Zoroastrian Deposit and North Kanowna Star Project
- Bardoc is trading a slight 2.6 per cent higher for 7.9 cents
Bardoc Gold (BDC) has received more results from recent resource definition and exploration drilling at the Aphrodite Deposit, which forms part of its namesake project.
The 3.03-million-ounce Bardoc Gold Project is located near Kalgoorlie, Western Australia.
Drilling targeted shallow supergene mineralisation in the Sigma Lode, which is located immediately east of the planned open pit over the main Alpha and Phi lodes at the Aphrodite Deposit.
Pleasingly, drilling has confirmed the shallow supergene mineralisation at the Sigma Lode, as well as identifying significant widths and grades of mineralisation.
Latest results include 21 metres at 3.94g/t gold from 147 metres including seven metres at 6.12g/t gold from 161 metres, seven metres at 2.77g/t gold from 177 metres, eight metres at 2.92g/t gold from 78 metres, and nine metres at 1.51g/t gold from 69 metres.
Bardoc Gold believes these results demonstrate the significant growth potential in the under-explored Sigma Lode and to add to the current open pit ore reserve.
“In-fill drilling at the Sigma pit has confirmed the presence of a broad high-grade mineralised zone in line with the current resource model. The Sigma pit did not previously form any part of the PFS mine plan or ore reserve and will provide a welcome addition to our DFS, due for release in March 2021,” CEO Robert Ryan said.
Bardoc is currently mobilising a reverse circulation (RC) drill rig to the North Kanowna Star Project to follow up on recently discovered gold trends. It is also continuing aircore drilling at Aphrodite’s eastern area before it returns to North Kanowna Star to test for extensions to the anomalous areas.
Additionally, exploratory diamond drilling continues at the northern end of the Zoroastrian Deposit.
Bardoc is trading a slight 2.6 per cent higher for 7.9 cents at 11:49 am AEDT.
