  • Cassini Resources has started drilling at its Handpump Gold Prospect in the Mount Squires Gold Project

Cassini Resources has started drilling at its Handpump Gold Prospect in the Mount Squires Gold Project.

The drilling program at Handpump comprises off a 1,000m of RC drill. The program is designed to confirm mineralisation controls and extensions from previous drill intercept results.

The results from the intercepts include 15m at 2.30g/t Au from 31m within a broader mineralised envelope of 57m at 0.94g/t Au from 14m.

Cassini’s drilling program represents the first drilling at the Handpump Prospect since 2011, before Cassini’s ownership.

A high- resolution aeromagnetic survey has also commenced over the northern half of the project to assist with structural and lithological mapping which is key to targeting gold mineralisation.

Cassini Resources is a base and precious metals developer and explorer based in Perth, Western Australia.

Mount Squires Project is located in the Musgrave Province of Western Australia and is at an early stage of production for gold.

Gold prospectively was identified at Mount Squires by Western Mining Corporation in the 1990s. Western Mining looked for nickel and copper sulphide and the results came up poor.

Gold anomalies were identified but never followed up and the tenements were later surrendered.

Beadell Resources picked up the project in the mid-2000s and identified several gold prospects with further soil geochemistry, rock chip sampling and mapping.

Beadell’s exploration after the initial discovery was limited due to a change in corporate strategy and the project was later surrendered.
