Westar Resources (WSR) has announced new targets have been identified at the Coolaloo Gold Project in Western Australia.

In November 2020, Southern Geoscience Consultants (SGC) reviewed data from an aeromagnetic and radiometric survey undertaken at the project in October 2019.

Pleasingly, SGC identified 12 target areas — four of which are considered high-priority.

In addition, the study gave a broader understanding of the structural patterns and potential controls of mineralisation at the Coolaloo project.

"The results of the SGC review and the recently recognised potential for sheared granite mineralisation highlights the strong prospectivity of the Coolaloo geology and refining the exploration targets," Managing Director Karl Jupp said.

Westar will now evaluate and prioritise all current targets along with other datasets, including historical geochemical data, ahead of drilling which is planned for later this year.

Before the aircore drilling can go ahead, Westar has already submitted a spatial program of works to the Department of Mines, Industry Regulation and Safety.

The company will also conduct a reconnaissance program at the new targets but further details on this will be reported as they are decided.

Westar ended the day trading down 1.96 per cent at 25 cents at market close.
