The visit was a prelude to finalising the exploration targets for the next drilling campaign, for which planning is underway to test for gold mineralisation.
Notably, structural observations made support Cervantes’ model for a large tonnage gold target.
The aim of the field inspection was to better understand the results of drilling by the previous explorer, Paynes Find Gold Ltd (PNE).
The historical workings in the project area were based on outcropping or subcropping, quartz-vein related gold mineralisation.
Prior drilling has not tested Cervantes’ thesis
Observations made on the visit support Cervantes views that a structural interpretation previously undertaken by consultants has never been tested by adequate drilling.
Cervantes intends to test the deeper parts of the west dipping Primrose Shear in a number of locations.
Drilling to target other prospects
Additional drilling is being planned to test the elevated nickel-cobalt and gold areas in the southern permits.
Furthermore, a second round of deeper drilling is also being considered for the Pansy Pit target within the Primrose Project.
Planning is well underway for a drilling program to test regional targets on the Albury Heath Project also in Western Australia.
