Breaker Resources Drills Discovery Potential Outside Bombora Resource

THE DRILL SERGEANT: Breaker Resources (ASX: BRB) reported drilling results it claims to continue to highlight the growth potential at the company’s Lake Roe gold project east of Kalgoorlie in Western Australia.

Breaker Resources said the latest results it has achieved increase the potential in two large areas – the Carbineer and Kopai-Crescent prospects – located to the east and to the north of the one-million-ounce Bombora gold deposit.

The results from Carbineer come from three RC drill holes, which form part of a 14-hole program designed to assess the gold potential in a three kilometres-long corridor between the Claypan Shear Zone and the Swan Lake Syenite to the east of the Bombora deposit.

All three drill holes intersected gold mineralisation with assay results pending for a further 11 drill holes.

Preliminary results include:

4 metres at 21.79 grams per tonne gold from 172m; and

2m at 4.83g/t gold from 120m.

The results from Kopai-Crescent relate to a program of 28 RC drill holes targeting a potential link between the Kopai and Crescent prospects 3km north of Bombora.

Preliminary results include:

4m at 2.34g/t gold from 61m; and

4m at 1.94g/t gold from 32m.

Results are pending for a further seven RC drill holes and two diamond drill holes.

The results follow drilling below the Bombora deposit which recently extended the strike length of known high-grade gold lodes below the open pit Resource by 600m to 2,000m.

“These two emerging discoveries have the potential to materially expand our shallow gold inventory and complement our success extending the Bombora gold deposit at depth,” Breaker Resources executive chairman Tom Sanders said in the company’s announcement to the Australian Securities Exchange.

“We are still gauging the extent of the mineralisation footprint in each area on very wide reconnaissance drill hole spacings.

“So to hit high-grade gold at the Carbineer prospect on the first two single-hole sections, 100 metres apart, is both exciting and unusual.

“Further drilling is planned to restart in two weeks.

“In the Kopai-Crescent area we are seeing significant gold up to two yo four grams per tonne over a very large area.

“I think that the high-grade intersections will come once we finish scoping the areal extent of the mineralisation and then zero in on the structures controlling the gold.”
