Thundelarra Ltd (ASX:THX) has commenced follow-up drilling at the Crown Prince prospect within its flagship 100% owned Garden Gully Gold Project in Western Australia.

The reverse circulation (RC) and diamond drilling program is following up positive results from the inaugural drilling program in late 2017.

Results featured intersections such as 8 metres at 22.3 g/t gold.

Historical gold production at Crown Prince totalled about 21,000 ounces at an average grade of about 22 g/t gold.

Thundelarra’s objective is to gain a clear understanding of the geology and structures controlling the mineralisation at Crown Prince.

Initial results confirmed these high gold grades down dip and 130 metres below the old workings.

New program to test along strike and down dip for extensions

The new program will comprise 10 RC holes for 2,500 metres and 7 diamond holes for 2,000 metres.

The objective is to test along strike and down dip for extensions and repetitions of the North and Main Lodes.

Some holes will also be aimed at verifying data from previous explorers, which can then potentially be used to upgrade the resource to JORC 2012 standards.

While a maiden resource at Crown Prince and Lydia is a priority, exploration results from other prospects have not disappointed.
