At the Currans North Prospect, RC drilling will follow up on new bonanza gold grades at depth associated with accessory galena and other sulphides, indicating further potential similarities with the Penny North discovery by Spectrum Metals Ltd (ASX:SPX).
Location of planned RC holes at the Currans Find North Prospect
The drilling program will explore the down-plunge and along-strike extensions of the high-grade gold mineralisation that was intersected in previous drilling.
Following the RC drilling program, a trial IP (induced polarisation) survey is planned over known sulphides associated with high-grade gold mineralisation at Currans North; it is to be followed by 3D surveying and geophysical modelling.
RC drilling will also test an electromagnetic anomaly along the Youanmi Shear Zone that was identified by a helicopter-borne electromagnetic survey conducted by Venus in 2018.
The electromagnetic anomaly is associated with gold anomalies in historical shallow drilling making this a high‐priority drill target for bedrock‐hosted gold mineralisation.
