Westar Resources’ (WSR) recent results from its maiden drill program at Gidgee South have confirmed gold mineralisation.

The company said it was excited to announce results from its maiden reverse circulation drilling and deep ground penetrating RADAR (DGPR) programs at its wholly-owned Gidgee South Project in Western Australia.

Results from the program include three metres at 3.29 grams of gold per tonne (g/t) from 35 metres, including one metre at 6.27g/t gold from 36 metres.

The drilling program was designed to test multiple targets within a broad mineralisation corridor, including geological units and features along strike.

Rock chip samples, from quartz veining in mullock adjacent to shallow historical ‘Tassie’ gold workings assayed 15.3g/t gold and 14.3g/t gold. However, several unmineralised veins were also encountered, which have failed to reach projected depth of the mineralised vein.

Westar Managing Director, Karl Jupp, said the company was pleased to have confirmed gold mineralisation.

“The bulk of the program was designed and prepared prior to the acquisition of the BMC and Carbine Bore transactions, so there is opportunity to further test these prospects,” he said.

“We will progress planning the next steps at Gidgee South, which includes integration of the DGPR results, follow-up drill planning at the Birrigrin Mining Centre and mapping at the Carbine Bore prospect.”

The company said multiple historical workings remain to be drill tested at depth and along strike.

Westar Resources was down 8.82 per cent, trading at 15.5 cents at market close.
