Drilling program at Poochera
Andromeda is targeting high-grade halloysite at Condooringie prospect within the Poochera project with a 2,000-metre aircore drilling program.
The program is following up a recently identified high-grade halloysite zone 1-kilometre to the north of drilling undertaken in December 2019, which extended a kaolin zone to the south.
Condooringie is around 5 kilometres northeast from the company’s Carey’s Well halloysite-kaolin deposit for which a pre-feasibility study (PFS) is expected to be released later this month.
The aim of the drilling is to infill between the two high-grade halloysite zones identified and potentially to define Bright White halloysite-kaolin over 2 kilometres of strike at Condooringie should these zones be shown to be linked.
Drilling is also planned to test the south and east of the southern zone at Condooringie, which remains open in both directions.
