Rumble Resources (RTR) has started a multiphase systematic exploration program to test 45 priority targets across at least four target areas within the Braeside Project.

Braeside covers a 673-square kilometre area and is located 129 kilometres east of Marble Bar in the East Pilbara region of Western Australia.

The company is targeting copper, gold, zinc, lead, silver and vanadium during its reverse circulation (RC) and diamond drilling program.

Out of the 45 targets, 12 are high priority, drill-ready targets, 14 are medium priority targets and 19 are low priority targets which require additional targeting before drilling commences.

Lightning Ridge is the first target area which has previously yielded intersections of two metres at 11.92 per cent lead and 28g/t silver from 36 metres, two metres at 10.12 per cent lead and 38.5g/t silver from 55 metres.

RC drilling will target 220 metres of workings for high-grade lead-silver epithermal deposits.

The company will target high-grade lead-zinc-copper breccia pipe deposits at the Gossan East target. Gossan East has previously returned four metres at 3.58 per cent zinc from 44 metres.

Gossan East hosts a 450-metre strike of known mineralisation and remains open.

The third target, Barker Well, has recently shown potential high-grade lead-silver-zinc breccia pipes over an 800-metre strike.

Multiple high-grade grab samples include 38.8 per cent, 32.7 per cent and 30.2 per cent lead.

Finally, Rumble will drill a single, deep diamond core hole at Sugar Ramos to test previously identified and highly-significant alteration and mineralisation.

Previous grab sampling above the drill intersection has returned up to 54.27 per cent lead, 1.45g/t gold, 0.11 per cent copper and 72g/t silver.

Company shares have dropped 2.86 per cent and are trading for 17 cents at 1:46 pm AEST.
