King River Copper has drill bit spinning as it seeks to add to Mt Remarkable gold bounty

Drilling has traced the main quartz adularia zone along a westerly plunge and identified a possible new deeper zone.

King River Copper Ltd (ASX:KRC) has the drill bit spinning as it targets further high-grade gold at the Trudi prospect within the Mt Remarkable project in Western Australia.

The first 900 metres of a closed-spaced grid drilling program has been completed with 600 drill samples sent to the laboratory.

So far, the program has traced the main quartz adularia zone along a westerly plunge, which remains open at depth, and identified a possible new deeper zone to the east.

Drilling is focused on the Trudi vein where last year’s best result of 11 metres at 27.9 g/t gold was returned.

A cross-section of the Trudi high-grade area targeting a possible new shoot at depth.

The aim is to test and delineate the trend of this high-grade intersection and test the extent of another high-grade shoot to the east, as well as identify any other nearby shoots.

It will also provide insight into mineralisation controls and assist with targeting high-grade mineralisation on this and other veins.

Drilling is ongoing

Once the grid at 5-metre spacing has been completed, drilling will continue to follow the high-grade trends at depth.

Results from the samples sent to a laboratory in Perth are due within the next 14 days.

King River’s 100%-owned Mt Remarkable project is 200 kilometres southwest of Kununurra in the East Kimberley region.

Previous results extended the Trudi vein system to a potential strike length of nearly 1 kilometre with mineralised intersections obtained 600 metres to the east and 100 metres west of the historical drilling.

As well as following up the close-spaced drilling at Trudi with extensional drilling of high-grade zones and exploration for other high-grade zones, King River plans further work.

This includes close-spaced drilling at Gemma vein where 2017 drilling returned high-grade gold in excess of 5 g/t adjacent to areas of structural complexity with large vein widths.

Exploration drilling planned

Exploration drilling is planned to test the 600 metres of undrilled strike east of the main Trudi deposit with 4 metres at 0.95 g/t, including 1 metre at 3.36 g/t intersected 600 metres from previous drilling.

King River's projects in the north of Western Australia.

The ongoing program also includes exploration drilling of other Mt Remarkable veins including the newly discovered southern veins.

Four diamond drill holes are planned to provide structural information in the high-grade zones at Trudi, subject to rig availability.

King River’s two-month schedule also includes pre-collars for deep diamond holes at Chapmans gold prospect of the Speewah project and drilling for copper-gold at Speewah’s Windsor prospect.
