  • White Rock Minerals (WRM) begins a major underground diamond drilling program at the Morning Star gold mine in Victoria
  • Roughly 50 diamond holes will be drilled to test the Gap Zone and to identify quartz reef structure geometry
  • Previous drilling throughout the Gap Zone is limited with historical mining following the high-grade gold mineralisation until its closure in 1963

White Rock Minerals (WRM) has begun a major underground diamond drilling program at the Morning Star gold mine.

The Morning Star mine is part of White Rock’s Woods Point Gold Project which lies in Victoria.

Diamond drill contractor Deepcore Australia has begun drilling with an underground electric hydraulic drill rig.

Roughly 50 diamond holes, for 11,500 metres, will be drilled to test the Gap Zone and to identify quartz reef structure geometry.

Previous drilling throughout the Gap Zone is limited with historical mining following the high-grade gold mineralisation until its closure in 1963.

At the time of closure, the middle section had not been developed.

As it has been subject to little drilling, there is a significant potential to identify new high-grade quartz reef structures along the 600-metre strike of Gap Zone, according to White Rock.

White Rock’s overall aim at Morning Star is to identify and drill areas that have the potential to host multiple high-grade gold quartz reefs. This will allow the company to restart production from multiple reef locations.

The Gap Zone is ideal due to its size, high-grade gold-bearing reef potential and proximity to existing infrastructure, according to White Rock.

Shares in WRM were up 2.99 per cent on the market and were trading at 34.5 cents at 1:53 pm AEDT.
