THE DRILL SERGEANT: Antipa Minerals (ASX: AZY) has begun diamond and air core drilling programs at the company’s wholly-owned Minyari Dome project in the Paterson Province of Western Australia.
Antipa Minerals anticipates completing up to 3,800 metres of diamond drilling with the aim of potentially increasing the size and grade of both the Minyari and WACA deposits, which combined host high‐grade JORC 2012 Mineral Resource Estimates (MREs) of 732,000 ounces gold at 2 grams per tonne and 26,000 tonnes of copper at 0.24 per cent.
A 3,000m program of air core drilling will test the potential of 2019 GAIP Survey chargeability (and resistivity) high priority targets, potentially related to gold and copper sulphide bearing mineral systems.
Targets within the areas of interest have had limited to no prior direct drill testing.
While the diamond drill rig is at the Minyari Dome project, Antipa will take the opportunity to also drill test the Judes copper, silver and gold deposit, to evaluate the style and shoot controls for the previously identified high‐grade mineralisation, which remains open down dip/plunge, along strike and potentially across strike.
