  • Surefire Resources (SRN) has mobilised a second drill rig to commence works at its Yidby Road gold prospect in Western Australia
  • The reverse circulation rig is in place to test for extensions of mineralisation at depth and to the southwest at the project and potentially extend said mineralisation to the northwest and southeast
  • In a broader context, the drill effort is hoped to build on previously struck intersections from back in late 2020, which returned relatively high-grade results
  • So far drilling has already intersected the mineralised structure and felsic porphyry at depth and to the north of the previous drilling
  • Surefire Resources are up a modest 3.85 per cent trading at 2.7 cents per share

Surefire Resources (SRN) has mobilised a second drill rig to commence works at its Yidby Road gold prospect in Western Australia.

The second rig will test for extensions of the mineralised zone at depth and to the southwest, targeting a doubly plunging zone which could extend both to the northwest and southeast.

Drilling has already intersected the mineralised structure and felsic porphyry at depth and to the north of the previous drilling, with mineralisation remaining open in all directions.

More broadly, the 6000-metre drilling program is focussed on extending the previously intersected zone, which produced thick and relatively high-grade intersections in late 2020.

The Yidby Gold Project is situated within the southern portion of the Yalgoo-Singleton Greenstone Belt in the southwest Murchison Province of WA.

“Now that the second rig has commenced at Yidby Road we will be able to accelerate this very exciting program,” Surefire Managing Director Vladimir Nikolaenko commented.

“Drilling has already intersected extensions of the mineralised zone at depth and to the north and we look forward to the first results within weeks,” he added.

Surefire Resources are up a modest 3.85 per cent trading at 2.7 cents per share at 11:43 am AEDT.
