Drilling highlights include:
- 25 metres at 5.13 g/t gold from 363 metres, including 12 metres at 8.45 g/t gold from 375 metres;
- 26 metres at 5.28 g/t gold from 354 metres, including 10 metres at 8.89 g/t gold from 358 metres; and
- 35 metres at 1.64 g/t gold from 424 metres, including 6 metres at 2.5 g/t gold from 435 metres.
Established resource with a potential for growth
The Bundarra Gold Project lies within the Norseman‐Wiluna greenstone belt of the Archean Yilgarn Craton, circa 65 kilometres north of Leonora.
To date, more than 6,400 holes have been drilled with an accumulated drill depth of more than 210,000 metres.
The project hosts a JORC 2012 resource of 7 million tonnes averaging 1.9 g/t gold for a total of 431,000 ounces of gold across five deposits.
Bligh is aiming to expand its current gold resource inventory which is defined near to and beneath the existing open pits within the project area.
New drilling results confirm high‐grade extension
The results from the latest drilling have confirmed that a significant high‐grade zone extends to a depth of at least 350 metres below the Wonder North open pit and remains open at depth.
The latest results combined with results from the December 2016 drilling provide strong support for an increase in resources at depth.
Bligh is now in the process of compiling and interpreting all new results so that an updated resource block model estimate can be completed.
A review of the updated resource model will be used to plan and design the next drilling program at the project.
