Thundelarra Ltd (ASX:THX) has completed its 274-hole, 14,025-metre aircore drill program at its flagship Garden Gully Gold Project in Western Australia.

The objective of the program was to test for near-surface extensions of known mineralised structures and test new targets.

Drill samples have been submitted for assay.

Deeper drilling now underway

Earlier this week, Thundelarra commenced follow-up drilling at the Crown Prince prospect within Garden Gully.

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.

Aircore drilling is a cost-effective strategy

Shallower aircore drilling is a cost-effective strategy Thundelarra is using to better identify the potential of Garden Gully’s 14 prospects.

The Garden Gully Gold Project is located in the Meekatharra area which has produced over 7 million ounces of gold.

It has established infrastructure and is close to two gold plants in Andy Well 300,000 tonnes per annum (tpa) owned by Doray Minearls Ltd (ASX:DRM) and Bluebird 3.1 million tpa owned by Westgold Resources Ltd (ASX:WGX).

Westgold and Doray both have very active exploration programmes in the region in the search for more mineralisation to generate feed for their plants which have spare capacity.

Both companies hold tenements that abut the Garden Gully project.

Notably the project has a proven production history having produced 20,718 ounces grading 21.7 g/t gold previously.

Thundelarra’s drilling is working towards a maiden resource at the project.
