THE DRILL SERGEANT: Breaker Resources (ASX: BRB) reported on recent drilling activity at the company’s Lake Roe gold project east of Kalgoorlie in Western Australia.
Breaker Resources said the drilling at the 1.4 million ounce project had continued to extend high-grade gold mineralisation at relatively shallow depths below the Bombora open pit Resource.
The diamond drilling delivered:
6.8 metres at 12.07 grams per tonne gold from 277m (estimated true width of 3.4m), including 3m at 21.53g/t gold from 280m.
A step-out hole BBDD0130 was drilled a further 80m to the south that intersected the Tura lode, displaying numerous specks of visible gold with assays pending.
Breaker said these latest results have extended the down-plunge extent of high-grade mineralisation on the Tura lode to 900 metres with the system remaining open down plunge.
“These results provide more strong evidence that the roots of the Bombora ore system have high-grade lodes with genuine underground mining potential,” Breaker Resources managing director Tom Sanders said in the company’s ASX announcement.
“Given what we are seeing in the core, we are eagerly awaiting the assay results from BBDD0130.
“The underground potential is growing rapidly with high-grade lodes opening at scale in several areas directly below the three kilometres-long open pit Resource.
“So far, we have partially defined two of these with the steeply dipping, 900 metres-long Tura lode in the central area, and the 2.2 kilometres-long package of stacked flat lodes to the north.
“There is also the emerging potential of other steeply dipping lodes such as Daisy and Brigalow Mick, and the known potential of the strike-extensive west-dipping lodes like Quarries.”
Drilling at the Lake Roe project is continuing with two diamond drill rigs running continuously, and one Reverse Circulation (RC) rig operating on a campaign basis depending on availability.
The diamond rigs are targeting high-grade lode extensions on 80m step-outs, while the RC rig is primarily focussed on near-surface extensions of the open pit Resource, and on exploratory drilling outside Bombora.
Assay results are pending for seven diamond drill holes targeting the Bombora deposit, and for thirty RC drill holes targeting several areas including the Carbineer prospect; the Windward prospect situated 14km north of Bombora; and the margin of the Swan Lake Syenite to the east of Bombora.
