Bellavista Resources (BVR) is preparing to begin drilling at its Brumby zinc-copper-silver project within its Edmund Basin project in Western Australia.

The company’s maiden drill program comprises at least nine diamond drill holes, for 2000 metres, to follow up known mineralisation and test a host of new walk-up targets.

Bellavista has government approval for the first 21 diamond and 21 reverse circulation (RC) holes and has secured drilling contractor DDH1 for the initial diamond drilling phase.

The company says historic reconnaissance drilling 25 years ago by CRA and Rio Tinto returned broad mineralised intersections of zinc, silver and copper in a prospective horizon over 30 square kilometres, which remains open.

Executive Director Mick Wilson said the company already knows there is extensive mineralisation at Brumby.

“These historic drilling results, combined with the presence of key geological features, underpin our view that Brumby is highly prospective for a large-scale mineralised system,” Mr Wilson said.

Bellavista listed on the ASX last week after it raised $6.5 million in an oversubscribed IPO.

Company shares last traded 3.92 per cent higher at 26.5 cents per share at 2:11pm AEST.
