Westar Resources (WSR) has begun an airborne electromagnetic (AEM) survey at the Opaline Well Project in Western Australia.

The Opaline Well Project lies roughly 190 kilometres southeast of Port Hedland and consists of one granted exploration licence covering roughly 67 square kilometres.

The survey is the next step in identifying priority drill targets after a successful field exploration and rock chip sampling program undertaken earlier in the year.

It will aim to identify discrete conductors which represent potential massive sulphide drill targets.

Work is expected to be completed by mid to late October with the final processed data to be released in four to six weeks.

Once received, Westar will use the data to generate plate models of electromagnetic anomalies for drill targeting.

Managing Director Karl Jupp commented on the survey.

“Our fieldwork and structural interpretations to date have highlighted the exciting prospectivity at Opaline Well and we are confident that the AEM geophysics proves to be a rapid and effective exploration tool that provides the key to fast-tracking volcanic massive sulphide-style target generation at the project,” Mr Jupp said.

Westar has ended the day 2.86 per cent in the green with shares trading at 18 cents in a $9.07 million market cap.
