THE DRILL SERGEANT: Alliance Resources (ASX: AGS) has commenced aircore drilling on the regional gold targets surrounding the Weednanna gold deposit, part of the Wilcherry Project Joint Venture between Alliance (75.01%) and Tyranna Resources (ASX: TYX) (24.99%).
Alliance Resources indicated the first regional gold exploration target to be tested is the Weednanna East gold prospect.
A total of 85 holes for 5,525 metres is planned to be completed with the aim of defining gold in regolith anomalism.
Alliance explained the drilling will consist of four lines of 50m by 200m spaced holes designed to test around the existing gold in soil and regolith anomalism, extend coverage to the west to existing RAB drilling at Weednanna and east to cover a series of northwest striking faults.
“Holes will be drilled vertically to blade refusal and sampled over four metre composite intervals for gold and base metals,” Alliance Resources said in its ASX announcement.
“Any composite samples returning anomalism will be re-sampled and analysed over one metre intervals.”
