Brightstar Resources (BTR) has begun drilling at the Cork Tree Well project in Western Australia’s Laverton district.

The company has completed eight holes at the Delta 2 prospect, which is targeting an untested bedrock beneath an aircore anomaly that extends for up to 500 metres of strike.

A further four holes will be completed at the prospect, before the drill rig moves to Cork Tree Well.

Here, it will complete a 50 hole program, which will investigate opportunities for splay and parallel lodes identified from previous drilling, and extend drilling along strike of the main deposit.

Managing Director Bill Hobba said the drilling will open up new opportunities at the project.

“We look forward to growing the current resource at Cork Tree Well main lode with this program as well as the discovery of new opportunities in the project area,” he said.

“Ideally this will allow Brightstar to develop multiple mining scenarios to feed the Brightstar Mill, which is currently on care and maintenance.”

In other news, the company has appointed Dr Nigel Brand as geochemical and targeting consultant for the Comet Well project area.

His role will involve reviewing geochemical data to determining new exploration programs for the project area.

Shares in the company were up 4.55 per cent to trade at 2.3 cents at 11:13 am AEST.
