Riversgold Ltd (ASX:RGL) has begun drilling the Queen Lapage prospect in WA’s Eastern Goldfields, one of the company’s main exploration targets in 2017.

The initial aircore drilling program will comprise around 200 holes on an 800 metre by 200-metre grid and is expected to take three weeks to complete.

Hallmarks of “highly prospective gold target”

Riversgold managing director Allan Kelly said: “We believe Queen Lapage has all the hallmarks of a highly prospective gold target and the scale to potentially host multiple gold deposits along the Randall Shear Zone.”

Historical drilling, anomalous gold

Historical shallow drilling has also intersected anomalous gold at several locations within an interpreted shear zone to the west of Randall Fault, although the drilling was sporadic and limited to islands within the lake.

Local geology is characterised by a north-northwest trending package of mafic/ultramafic rocks and clastic sediments separated by a faulted contact, like that seen in the company’s Farr-Jones prospect.
