Dreadnought Resources (DRE) has begun drilling within Lawrence’s Corridor which is part of the Ilaara Gold-Copper-Iron Ore Project in WA.
The company will drill 48 holes, for 3760 metres, to test 14 targets with high gold-in-soil anomalisms and associated orogenic gold pathfinders.
While none of the targets have seen effective historical drilling, they have all shown encouraging signs of mineralisation associated with structural trends and high tenor gold in-soil anomalies with pathfinder association.
This reverse circulation (RC) program follows drilling at Bald Hill, Longmore’s Find, Black Oak and Little Dove, which showed signs of mineralisation. Full results from these areas are expected to be delivered over April and May.
“Drilling to date from Bald Hill, Longmore’s Find, Black Oak and Little Dove has been highly encouraging,” Managing Director Dean Tuck said.
“We are now looking forward to drilling the Lawrence’s Corridor and to receiving an ongoing stream of assay results in addition to results from extensive regional soil and geophysical surveys,” he added.
In addition to the RC drilling program, Dreadnought has started a sub-audio magnetic survey at Metzke’s Find, which will help with identifying and targeting mineralised structures. Once the survey has wrapped up, the company will undertake drilling at Metzke’s Find.
Dreadnought is up 5.56 per cent and shares are trading at 1.9 cents at 11:13 am AEDT.
