Pinnacle Minerals (PIM) has completed auger drilling at the Bobalong Kaolin Project in the Great Southern region of Western Australia.

Drilling focused on resource definition at the Bills Middle target where previous drilling delivered excellent results, indicating the potential for a high-value direct shipping ore product.

A total of 41 auger holes were drilled, totalling roughly 369.5 metres, and samples have been sent for laboratory analysis with results to be released when available.

The drilling was designed to gain a deeper understanding of the depth of the weathering, basement granite composition and the location of mafic intrusive rocks.

This will enable Pinnacle to predict where the concentration of higher quality kaolin is located within the Bobalong Project.

Once Pinnacle receives the results, it will begin preliminary planning for potential operations.

Pinnacle is also waiting on a detailed analytical and commercial report on samples taken from previous drilling at the Bills Middle target from the Wuhan University of Technology in China.

Initial indications suggest that the kaolin may be compliant to calcination which is a process that removes impurities and improves the whiteness of kaolin.

Pinnacle has ended the day in the grey with shares trading at 20 cents.
