Todd River Resources (TRT) has updated the market regarding ongoing drilling at its Berkshire Valley Project in Western Australia.
The ongoing reverse circulation (RC) and aircore drilling is roughly 60 per cent complete, with 190 holes drilled and 150 holes remaining to be drilled.
Drilling along the Eastern Trend has identified the presence of sulphides in partly weathered and fresh gabbros in 13 holes along the 1.8 kilometre long coincident copper-platinum group element (PGE) geochemical anomaly.
Analytical results from this drilling, including those for platinum and palladium, are expected in late January 2022.
Aircore drilling was also completed across the Western Trend to follow up on a number of low-level nickel and copper anomalies.
Two RC holes were also drilled, with trace sulphides intersected in both holes.
Samples from both the RC and aircore drilling have been sent for assay.
Managing Director Will Dix is pleased with the findings so far.
“This is an excellent start to the drilling campaign on the Eastern Trend. Seeing multiple shallow holes over significant strike with sulphides including some chalcopyrite present in gabbroic and pyroxenitic geology absolutely validates both the exploration model and the approach we have taken at Berkshire Valley,” Mr Dix said.
“We are eagerly awaiting the analytical results to determine whether there are any PGE’s associated with the sulphides and we continue to progress the drilling with the strongest PGE anomalies still to be tested, as well as the RC holes we have planned.”
Additionally, a moving loop electromagnetic (MLTEM) survey that was meant to begin in November has been pushed back until early January as a result of crew availability.
Todd River expects the survey to be completed by the end of January, with any required follow-up drilling to begin shortly after.
Shares in Todd River were down 8.70 per cent on the market and were trading at 8.4 cents at 11:33 am AEDT.
